I hope it processes great in dronedeploy.  I really want to do structures and products.  The easiest job.

I've done it with the Mavic 2 Zoom and they came out good but looking at the individual images, the quality is like Double that of the 2 Zoom.

thx : )

The jobs are rolling in I think because of my Phantom 4 Pro V2.0 images.  People get turned off when they know 12MP.  : (

Thats a long drive. I've sold the Inspire now Got a good price for it so just the M2P left and getting bored with that a tad. I may call it a day soon with so many restrictions being imposed here now. Registration, tests, £50 to fly in a park just to take pics of trees and clouds. Nah, it's getting boring.

It's boring for me too but spicing up my portfolio, people seeing it, them selecting me to do the work is intriguing.  I don't even deplete Half of the P4P V2.0 or Mavic 2 Zoom battery when I go fly for fun.  Prob 20% used out of 100% and I leave.  Sometimes, I don't even break them out.  I use the Spark more often but the quality is just horrendous in comparison.  I might use it for indoor shots but if not it's kind of a waste to keep it.  I'm not risking the Mavic 2 or P4P V2.0 w/ indoor Active Track.  They are just too big plus the sensors will cause them to stop.

I guess the effort is worth it if $$$£££ are involved but I don't do it for cash. In fact, I may put my M2P on eBay now - get a nice new pair of shoes with the cash

I would just keep it just in case anything pops up but if you grew out of it then probably sell it.  Did you sell all your drone collection but the M2P?

I was looking at the Inspire section and the problems they have are scary.  Seems like nothing really beats the P4P V2.0 in terms of overall versatility.

I was lucky that mine was OK - and if it falls from the sky now it ain't my problem

Spend more time with my family and friends. I've wasted far too much time on what I believe is a hobby that will be banned here soon anyway. Constantly looking over my shoulder and walking through boring fields in the middle of nowhere to fly around for an hour taking my 2000th photograph of a tree, sunset, a building that I can actually walk in and properly appreciate or for the ultimate image, a cloud LMFAO

I feel the same way about the parks.  I don't even bother using record mode.  I wouldn't even bother upgrading if it wasn't for the business but the business pretty much pays for everything.  Driving then flying to dozens of spots to take a shot and getting paid is the easiest job.

I just end up doing high flybys over areas in Sport too.  Did you ever get paid commercially before you quit?

No - been offered but not qualified to charge and without being big headed I don't need the money. I only flew for myself.

You gotta write a manual here and they charge over a grand for it - I looked into the PfCO and it's a load of pretentious BS and really boring. Anyone would think it's designed for airplane pilots lol I can't be bothered with all that. easier ways of getting a free lunch The Part 107 seems far more straight forward.

Yeah, that's pretty crazy.  I have to renew my Hazmat this year and have my DOT physical to keep my CDL-A.  I don't even truck drive anymore but I spend a couple thousand to get it.  I don't bother doing the licenses that require retest but w/ driving and drone it's ok.

I was off by 4MP but not that off.  I've taken long range pix w/ the Mavic 2 Zoom and they were good enough too.

I had a lot more jobs after that one and have another today.  The reliability confidence is of utmost importance.  No hiccups is extremely important when doing commercial work.
