    Default RPAS - drone jobs

    Figure I'll ask here.

    Anyone looked at this new RPAS/drone industry?

    Keep seeing buy n sell posts asking for local crop mapping, aerial photography aerial videography.

    I'm starting to wonder if doing the Harv's rpas course isn't worthwhile. I've already got 30+ years of RC flying

    But the information I'm finding on the industry is pretty limited.

    I’ve got two friends that are in that industry both outside of Canada though. One guy started doing hobby level type stuff and now does all the aerial filming for that Hawaii five-0 show and other major films in Hawaii. I think he’s only been doing it 5 years. Another friend in New Zealand does aerial realestate photography for farms and estates mostly.

    I actually know two in the industry myself but they absolutely won't say a word on wages/rates etc.

    Can't decide if that means it's so low they don't want to admit it (generally like the pipeline inspection pilots) or what the scoop is. Indeed said 50$/hr but didn't specify if that's just flight time or also computer time doing the processing too or...
