    I have a SP License, but plan on 9/3/16 to take the 107 Private Pilots Certification test to add to my FAA 333 and SP License, as I am no longer into flying gliders(too old) to handle bad landings! LOL!
    So instead of renewing the SP again, I have chosen the 107 to continue to fly commercially in the future!
    Anyone else thinking or planning to do so? Vote above:

    Assuming SP License = Sport Pilots Certificate then you can go online now and take the course and test. If you do not have a current flight review then go for a flight with an instructor. Wont save you money but it's a hell of a lot more fun than taking a written test at a CAT center.

    If you mean Student Pilot then forget I jumped in and said anything.

    I took the test in June, always have a current flight review. I have an appointment with the FSDO to get my sUAS certificate on the 30th... pretty excited about it.

    They after registering and sending them some samples of your flying and videos/pics will send you work in areas(locations) you are available to film . They find the customers, your film and they get a % of your work pay. I have only done two jobs for them, I find more better work on my own ! I am just starting to dabble in real estate and have been aerial 3D mapping farms and ranches in East Texas.
    Have you checked their website out?

    Ya.. I was just checking it out. I need a few more sample vids. What do they like to see? Which 3d service ya using. I ve looked into drone deploy and it looks nice. I just gotta figure out how to do the mapping routes with the H. Real estate and construction seems to be where it's at here. Just waiting on the license to get going.

    Taking it, but not immediately. Are there any 3d services that can be purchased with a one time fee, instead of monthly subscription?

    I'm going to wait a little to hear exactly what is on the test and to hear from those that don't have an SP or any other type of license, how they fair on it. I've been reading and studying but I think I might need a class for some of the chart readings...

    OK, I know Drone Deploy will do 3d models, what other services are available that will work with the H?

    PixD Mapper Pro-2.2 (Permanent License) I know, mucho dinero, but my last employer paid for my license and when I left, It went with me, because they registered it in my name, not the company name(Their loss, my gain).
    It is sooo totally awesome! Nothing out there even comes close!
    A Parrot Sequoia( awesome too my friend, makes awesome spectrum photos/vids!
