  1. The 107 test is actually not all that hard, I had to go over the charts and weather parts a couple times in my class from http://pilotinstitute.com , then you can even take practice tests. Took me about 3 weeks with me being quite busy with life, BUT I learned so much I recommend you take the course whether you intend to get the license or not :idea:

    Also it is legal to have a remote P.I.C. go out with you when you fly with his or her guidance or get him to do your photos for you as well... Worth following the law because the fines can be quite hefty :yikes:

      I have been using a drone for 2 years now. The technology is improving on each new release. I just recently purchased the new DJI Mavic Air 2, and love it. Flight time is 30 minutes, has a 4k camera, its range is a few miles, ect. Im using it more and more on sending it out to scout out prospecting locations to hunt. I ran into another prospector out near Ivanpah Nevada, and he was about to hike up a steep hill to get to some interesting looking mine workings almost at the top of the hill. I told him, I will send the drone to scout it out. When the drone flew up there, the mine was completely caved in, and the guy was thankful for saving him a few hours of strenuous hiking.

       You can buy small cell phone repeaters to attach to the drone, so if your in a remote location, in a canyon, or hills that get no cell, you can send the drone straight up, to get above hills and mountains to get cell.


    I have the DJI Mavic Mini and the DJI Mavic Air... Amazing what they can do...

  4. Hi Adam, you have to have an FAA part 107 drone license to use any drone video to make any type of money or in trade for goods. This includes YouTube , filming for a realtor, anything that makes money. Hefty fines if someone turns you in or if you are caught. You can get a recreational license, but can not use the video online if monetized, all drones over .55 pounds must be registered, but only part 107 operators must get the license, 150.00 for the class and another 160.00 to take the final exam for license at a local airport or other FAA location. Fines range from 1000.00 to 36000.00 if caught without this license doing video uploads to YouTube etc.

    Even a drone under .55 pounds is not allowed to upload or sell video without a part 107 license.

    What's this "we" stuff? 

    ... the folks that normally go ought to correspond and make it an " unofficial" shindig. 

    Do you really need MINELAB there to have a good time?

    Of course, someone needs to inform  Bill of the unofficial  beep-o-rama.

    It has nothing to do with Minelab, this is my decision not to host a large gathering until all this crap is over with.

  6. OK, I was finally bitten by the drone bug and amd almost done studying for my part 107 license. What a fantastic research tool and once mastered one can see the goldfields from a birds eye... I am amazed by the abilities of the DJI Mini and Mavic Air  and the video quality. 

    Now I can see over that next hill without humping my chubby self over it.

    Yes, I am growing them by the tub full.

    I prepare them by slicing them and sauteing in butter and garlic. Sometimes with onions and brown gravy.

    If you have any other questions don't be afraid to ask!

    butter, garlic, and a bit of soy sauce is killer Bob
