I am Jason - 42 years old in the Midlands UK.
I have been a recreational quad flyer for just over a year - using a flywheel f450 with a go pro - no fpv set up yet.
I run my own specialised cleaning business and have done for 10 years but i would like to become CAA certified and i am just about to book the course. I would like to then get a better set up and then slowly start doing some commercial work, probably free at first to build a portfolio before setting about trying to make a career from it.
Any help from experienced pilots would be great - about how to go about it, what work is out there, best set up and camera etc. I am a novice photographer as well - my son is very good and has studied photography for a few years and is going to help on that side but the set ups to go for are confusing at the moment. I like the DJI 800 & 900 but i know someone who has bought an Inspire on the basis thats a good place to start commercially. My thinking is an 800 Evo would be better with better stability and choice of camera but the Inspire out of the box system looks good, although i am thinking to truly learn i would be better piecing a package together like the Evo.
Any way - any help would be great and if there is anyone near Tamworth in Staffordshire willing to give tips that would be a huge step forward!!
