    Controlled Airspace altitude limit and structures

    When you have a LAANC authorization with an altitude limit of less than 400 ft AGL in controlled airspace is that limit strictly from the ground or does that include within xxx feet from a structure as well? We know that the 400’ AGL general height limit is no higher than 400’ from ground but...

    Hobbyist versus Part 107

    Hey all, I'm currently a hobbyist flier with a single (Mavic Air) SUAV. I'm actually fairly good at passing certification exams, when there's a decent test-prep, to help me learn the material that's on the exam. So three questions: 1) As a hobbyist who likes the idea of using LAANC, but of...

    Foreigner traveling to US, wanting to legally fly a drone - any advices?

    Hi, everyone. This is my first post in the forums. I'm a proud owner of a Mavic Pro Platinum living in Chile, South America. I'm traveling to the Miami Beach next month and I'd love to take my drone along but only if able to legally fly it on the US, for recreational purposes only. I'm not a US...

    NFZ restrictions and Part 107 unlocking in DJI Go

    Question: I was recently in the French Alps and I’d been excited about capturing some epic mountainscapes and other footage, only to realize that the small strip a couple nm away compelled the app to not permit flight. Had I been Part 107 certified and unlocked as it were would I have been...

    Part 107 IACRA verification

    Hello, and thanks in advance for your help. I passed the FAA part 107 knowledge on Dec 20th, however IACRA still will not recognize my test ID. I realize the holidays caused a slow-down, but this seems excessively long as many more than 48 business hours have passed since elapsed since passing...

    Retest if you fail Part 107

    I’m not planning on failing the test, but if I do, is there a limit on the number of times that you can retest? Larry

    Difficulty of Part 107 exam

    Hello fellow Mavic Pilots, I am taking the Part 107 exam (US) on May 19th. I have been reading through the material nightly and plan to take some of the practice tests, use notecards for practicing scenarios. I understand that there are some for-pay courses you can take, but I am a little...

    Underage Drinking & Part 107

    I am aware that the FAA does not like drug and alcohol charges on pilots records. In my state, if you get an underage and go to a class, the charge will not go on your record. As a 19 year old with a 107, would getting an underage and then taking the class so it does not go on my record effect...

    Long distance with battery change

    I'm curious if its possible to ignore the RTH and land at max distance from home, have someone to shut down the Mavic, change the battery, restart the Mavic, then the pilot take off and fly back. (yes I'm board LOL) I'm aware this infringes on the LOS rule, but as one poster said, doesn't...

    Part 107 and minors?

    I see the regulations that you have to be 16 to take the Part 107 test but my son is under 16, he posts his videos to youtube, what happens if he monetizes them. He already has around 3k subscribers because he does all kinds of videos. I called the FAA and no one can give me a straight answer. I...

    Wait time for Part 107 Airspace Authorizations

    Hello All, Has anybody had any recent experience with the FAA in getting a 107 airspace authorization. I have a client that is looking for some photos of their property but it happens to be within a class D. I’m just curious what your wait time was like after submitting the application? Thanks

    Licensing amateur video for sale?

    From what I've learned so far, it appears that there is no wiggle room when it comes to monetary compensation for any footage shot by a drone hobbyist. However my accountant, who is also a licensed small-aircraft (as in Cessna, not DJI) pilot, has suggested that there may be a bit of a gray...

    Another sUAS Checklist Template

    I have been using a sUAS checklist template that really didn't fit me very well. I wanted something I could use for both Part 101 & 107 operations. Then, I discovered a PDF checklist (originally developed by George Stowers) that came very close to what I was looking for. The only problem was...

    Part 107 - What does it buy me?

    I'm confused on what a Part 107 does for me. I'm not in the hobby for commercial reasons (even though some day I may post some to YouTube), I simply want to fly recreationally. When using Air Map I notice when you select Part 107, almost all the smaller airports and heliports get turned off...

    Mavic anti-collision lights and Part 107

    According to the FAA, to flight at twilight/dusk the SUA must have anti-collision lights that can be seen at 3 statute miles. Are the lights on the Mavic Pro that bright? Are they in compliance with that regulation? Thanks
