Over the last few years of running Drone Launch Academy, I’ve discovered the key ingredients behind how some drone pilots are able to work only with high-end clients and charge thousands, while others struggle to get by.
Some were recently retired from their years of hard work and wanted to make some side income by flying drones.
Some were in jobs that paid the bills (but not one they were passionate about) and saw drones as a way to forge a new path into an exciting and lucrative field.
They got some money together, went out and bought the latest DJI drone, set it up and learned how to fly it around without killing any innocent bystanders, maybe they filmed a cool video of their kids or grandkids playing soccer.
Then they went out to try to find some of this fabled and luxurious “drone pilot work”!
Maybe you’ve tried some of their approaches…
You walk up to a real estate agent and offer to take some drone photos and video of a listing they have. The real estate agent asks you how much you charge. You tell them your price. They get back to you and say, “well, my friend’s 14-year-old nephew just got a drone and he can do it for half the price. Sorry.”
Or maybe you head over to one of the popular drone job sites on the internet. Clients just lining up to give you work? Sounds great!
But then you look at the payouts… $50 to take some photos of a property that’s an hour away. $100 to shoot some video that’s going to take you half a day with drive time.
At that rate you might be better off getting a job at your local fast food joint.
(Don’t get me wrong, at the very beginning, it might be worth taking some of those low paying gigs so you can get some flying experience and test out the waters.)
But you aren’t going to make a satisfying living doing that type of work. And did you really jump into the drone industry to be making peanuts on small gigs?
"In one weekend, I’ve learned more about video editing than I thought possible, and I knew NOTHING about Premiere Pro - but now I can actually work with some extremely powerful software.
I really appreciated the walkthrough video at the end where he shows a video from start to finish.
This really is a nice finishing touch to summarize everything that was taught during the course!
I KNOW I’ll be referencing this course again and again!
