    Hi everyone,

    I am looking at starting a drone services business (mapping, ag, inspection, etc.) and am wondering which business model are folks already up and running have successfully applied.

    Do you solicit your clients directly or offer your services through a coop/ag consultant/surveying firm?

    Do you charge by the hour or the job?

    It seems that, where it used to be that clients would outsource services when the only tool available was a manned aircraft, customers are now buying their own UAS and running the services internally.

    I would like to assess whether there is a real market potential for a dedicated business or if drone services are best run as a sideline.

    Thanks!
