DRONE IT YOURSELF?
So you want some drone footage of your property? You’ve got a drone and you know how to fly it, so why not make your own video? Maybe a friend will do it for free, or perhaps a guy you know has offered to do it cheap. The problem is, none of you are a F.A.A. licensed part 107 drone pilot. As soon as your video hits YouTube, you’re putting yourself at risk.
You can incur a serious fine from the F.A.A. A first offense fine can be as high as $11,000.00! Yes, you can be fined even if you are doing a YouTube video for yourself. Be careful and don’t get in trouble. The F.A.A. is serious about unlicensed drone pilots doing commercial videos for release on the internet.
