    Since the Mavic Pro is only 1.6 pounds, the regulations for obtaining an SFOC are less stringent than with an Inspire.
    However, all this means is that only some of the paid jobs you do with it won;t require an SFOC, such as out in the middle of nowhere etc.
    It is still highly advisable to get one anyway even if you are in the middle of nowhere.

    You'll need an SFOC to do anything commercial anyway . . especially next spring when new Canadian UAV commercial air regs may come into being. . . Although this may still be delayed due to lack of resources at TC. Suggest any newbies get up to speed on UAVs, CARS and SFOCs soon because commercial opportunities with MavicPro will expand exponentially in the next 6 months. I hope to have one next week with any luck.

    Mavic can already do 90%+ of most commercial tasks (right out of the box . . er . . pocket) and do it as good or better than a lot of alternative equipment . . even the high end $10,000-$50,000 machines that some commercial companies are buying. I say buy a Mavic Pro and you can take half their business. . . with a phone call.
