Lynda.com’s purchase of Video2Brain has taken the English portion of V2B off the market. No more $30-40 downloads that you can watch anywhere.
I was informed by one of my customers that if you fly a quadcopter, etc. for commercial purposes of any sort, you need to have a commercial pilot’s license. He claimed that this is an FAA regulation. Any pilots out there who can verify this?
I have a commercial pilot’s license. It would be funny if they made a “type” requirement… like they do for a 747… that would be so FAA!
Maybe this is the opening of a new career for me!
If you want to someone to come on and talk about the DJI Phantom quadcopter for aerial photography & Video, I’d be more than happy to join you one week. It’s important to note that it is currently illegal to fly this in the U.S. for commercial aerial photography or video purposes – but fine to do as a hobby. By 2015 there are plans on making them legal for commercial purposes, most likely with many restrictions. I just started flying the Phantom about three weeks ago and have learned quite a bit about it the rig, as well as methods to reduce or eliminate the jello effect when recording with the GoPro.
So, how do you join the contest that was mentioned? I don’t see that anywhere on the site.
I am trying to find the different WordPress plugin you are talking about. Where can I find them?
