At the end of August 2016, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) rolled out 14 CFR Part 107—SMALL UNMANNED AIRCRAFT SYSTEMS, which provides a commercial drone pilot's license. That created a whole new job classification -- Drone Cinematographer. This lounge discussion is intended for us folks who combine filmmaking skills with remote-piloting skills to communicate with each other. The types of topics I envision include regulatory issues, flying techniques, cinematography techniques, the best birds (aircraft) to use, and marketing questions. I'll start off with a little about me, and then let everyone else jump in. I'm a private pilot with high-performance, complex, and helicopter experience. I also have experience on both sides of the camera. And, I've got some RC model aircraft time (building and flying) under my belt. Finally, I have a newly minted commercial drone-pilot license. One thing I've found out about drone cinematography is that it requires the ability to fly precisely at low speeds. With that, you can replace a pile of specialized equipment, such as dollies and booms. Imagine a 2K video camera mounted on a 400-foot boom with rock-solid stability that you can position within a foot of where you want it, and point in any direction -- but you don't have to deal with the boom, itself. Your turn. . . .
