Hey Mavic Pilots!

I'm Joe Eder from Minneapolis, MN and I've been a drone pilot for 9 years.

I've been flying drones since 2013 when I bought a small 2" inch FPV drone with a remote control with video display built in. I saw that I could see the video with goggles and got my first Fat Shark goggles old school goggles for like $150, you could barely see the picture, but I was hooked.

I watched Steele's video on building a quad more than 10 times while I spent 2 weeks getting my first quad soldered and programmed. It was an absolute Frankenstein of a quadcopter but it flew! I have since built 6 - 5 inch quads, 1 - 3 inch quad and have 2 Tiny Whoops for flying around the house.

In 2018, I bought a DJI Mavic Pro after I got divorced and quit my career at IKEA and start down the path of becoming a professional photographer and drone pilot. I realized recently that in the drone photography business. It's as important to be a good photographer as it's important to be a good pilot!

In 2021 I got my Part 107 and started flying commercially in 2022 and practiced my photography skills. I shoot real estate and drone photography over the 2022 winter and went full time as a Real Estate and Drone photographer in April of 2023. Most of my shoots are contracted work through a local real estate photography company and I do shoots that I find and schedule on the side.

That's my biggest challenge now, is finding sustainable work! So I'm out here building my network! I hope to meet and get to know you all! I have a DJI Mavic 1 Pro, a DJI Mavic Air 2S with Smart Controller, 5 - 5 Inch quadcopters, 1 - 3 inch quadcopter, Nikon Z6, Ricoh Theta Z1

I'm excited to be here, thanks for letting me join your community! Picture is of my Mavic 1 Pro, 4 - 5 Inch Quads, 1 - 3 inch quad and a picture I took in 2021.

Welcome to the forum from a fellow FPV drone addict.
NICE FLEET you got there. How do you like that emax. Is that a 5" hawk apex? been playing around with getting one. This is a great forum and they have a very knowledgeable membership base here. I think you will enjoy it here!

Welcome from the Hampton Roads area of Virginia, USA. We have a Member's Map in the Upper Right of the Title Bar. Click on "Members" and then Click on "Member's Map…" Check it out and you might find some new flying friends.


I already welcomed you to our sister site DronePilot, but I'll post it here too as the words might help another member who is thinking of "spreading their wings…)…

Besides the Real Estate and drone photography, consider becoming a Videographer for Marketing hotels, casinos, spas, and resorts, giving them a 360-degree aerial shots of their property.

There is Golf Courses, Tourism ( for city, towns, etc…), Property mapping and inspections (new construction and Mapping), Search and rescue (Police and Fire Department), Rural and crop inspections… and so much more…

Consider also teaching drone classes, you are a builder, so you really have a leg up… Consider teaching classes for compensation, butr do not forget Free Classes for the scouts, 4-H, and other groups (word of mouth…

Good Luck!
 
Welcome to the forum. We look forward to your participation and more of your view of the world.
