    Hey all.
    I hold 2 FAA Airplane pilot ratings SES & SEL (Single Engine Sea & Single Engine Land).
    Took and past the FAA test for the Remote Pilot in Command rating the 2nd day the test was available, just waiting for IACRA to catch up so I can add it to my pilots certificate.

    I'm in my mid 50s, have been building and flying model aircraft since before I was little. RC helicopters since the early 2000s, and Drones since the Phantom 1. I have owned several drones and currently have a few. I try to fly a couple times a week. I love shooting pics, and some video.

    My wife has been bugging me the past couple years to do something with Drones as a semi retirement gig. So this spring I started an online Camera Drone Store www.MikesDroneStore.com
    I'm an approved vendor on www.PhantomPilots.com and offer a discount for forum members with code PHANTOMPILOTS

    When Part 107 goes into use next month I plan to offer aerial photo/video service and maybe sell my sunset pics.
    Which brings me to why I am looking at Inspires.

    I'm pretty knowledgeable with FAA regs, Phantoms, and even Yuneec drones, but am learning about Inspires and starting up a aerial video service.

    I will appreciate any advice offered.

    Thanks,

    Do you have any specific questions about the Inspire?

    Does it have any known issues? Flyaway?
    I think I would like the one with a Zenmuse Z3
