Publisher's Summary

Everyone today seems to have a drone: Amazon, touting a new high-tech delivery method; YouTubers, with countless aerial videos; your neighbor, who keeps crashing into your tree. But drones are more than a gadget craze. They're a booming business with the potential to change industries ranging from video to agriculture to contracting - and the ability to change your life.

Drone U was created by drone pilots for drone pilots, to help aspiring professionals turn a pastime into a profitable, sustainable, and successful commercial operation. Livin' the Drone Life draws on this invaluable experience to teach hopeful drone pros all sides of the business, including:

  • How to perform amazing technological feats safely
  • The basics of running your own company
  • Insight on surviving and thriving in a rapidly evolving field
  • The secrets of navigating the tricky regulatory market

Whether you bought your drone on a whim or as part of the tech craze, now is the time to turn your passion into profit, and a hobby into an investment for your future. With the help of this book, Drone U will show you how to fly safe, fly right, and make your business soar.

    "Better than the hard copy"

    I have had this hard copy on my coffee table for over 6 months and only got two three chapters. Having the audible version was the best thing, got through the whole book audible in 3 hours.

    "Just a commercial for their company"
    Any additional comments?

    I've listed to their podcast and youtube videos and they are fun and informative. I was hoping the book would be more so. I think I took away two or three really useful facts and then spent over half of the book listening to Paul tell us how great Drone U is. Drone U is the company the three writers/contributors of the book run and this book is little more than a running commercial for their subscription plan. Yes there is a "free" plan but all the real content you need to pay the $50/month plan. For a pro UAV pilot I'm sure this is a no brainer and if I do end up getting my UAV lic I'm sure I will happily pay the monthly fee for access to their community. HOWEVER I don't feel I needed to buy their book just to listen to a commercial for their company. To be fair, they are hardly the only entrepreneurs to have committed this sin. Still, if you are an amature or just curious I'd recommend just watching their videos on youtube. If you are a pro, then get the subscription. Either way, I'd recommend passing on the book. Lastly, for a group of guys who do media for a living the audio in this book is BAD. No consistency, bad jump cuts, tin can sound. Their drone videos are amazing not sure what happened here.

    "Canadian Perspective"

    Great primer. Overall, a large push towards their subscription service. All content is geared towards a US business, etc.

    "Better than the book?"

    I'll kill the suspense now and answer, yes. This audible version has multiple inserted add-ons that add to it's value. Livin the drone life is probably the most comprehensive manual to help guide you through the forest of drone regulations, rules and tips to hit the ground running with your new drone venture. This is a brilliantly layed out book with multiple lessons from learning to fly the "box" to finding which insurance company is right for your company. Let this book be your guide to turning your passion into a paycheck.
