It should be noted that I am an avid listener of the AskDroneU podcast and will soon become a member of DroneU, however reading this book did not play an integral role in either of those considerations. The only reason I couldn't give the 5th star is, I feel, that with the resources and knowledge possesed and availd to the team who put this together, paired with the opportunity to be the first true guide to an emerging industry, Living the Drone Life fell a little short. Even worse I feel that this may have been intentional. Why provide the reader with all of the goods for the price of a book when we can use the book as a marketing tool to motivate them to purchase a membership for much more, right?
Now before you throw a fit. I realize that the amount of info within DroneU is well worth the membership fee, hence why I mentioned before I will be joining. I also believe that there is value to be had in this book for the novice completey new to the industry. I even recognize the struggle of maintaining accessibility and digestibility when there is a mountain of information to convey. I will just say this, the amount of care, the perspective, the information within this book should motivate the reader to seek membership, the sales pitch cheapens it a bit those pages dedicated to this task could have been used to add more substance. People get pitched every where they turn (in general) if they are reading the book they are already buying what your selling. Just my opinion.
I love flight and was an avid RC enthusiast. But time past and now longer current on either. Bought a Phantom 3 Advanced for vacation in Mexico, but due to my lack of knowledge I only was able to get hotel video.
With some googling realized I could make some money from this drone. Found DroneU and now everything has changed. My wife and I are starting a new business, she wants out of postal service and I want out of corp. world.
We spend every evening after work in a field practicing the DroneU flight tests ready to get a DroneU certification. It's hard but making me more confident as a pilot. Heck I'm in the air again. I did purchase KingSchools drone training video to assist in getting my part 107.
Kind of funny a lot of the material is exactly what I had to learn to get my private pilot license. Now I need to learn some business get some ND filters make some money and get Phantom 4 Pro. Wife wants Inspire, so I can pilot and she can operate camera.
Thanks guys keep up the great work
