This podcast is a wonderful exploration of what drones can do.

“I bought my first drone a year ago to add production value to my video work. What I like about this podcast is Chris interviews professionals who are putting their drones to work, as well as some who are just getting started.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Very Informative
Hey Chris just wanted to msg you and say thanks for the work you do on the podcast. I listened to a few of the new episodes then decided to start from episode one and work my way up. I’m almost caught up to the current episode. The quality of your podcast just keeps getting better. I personally like the stuff that’s more complex or technical because it makes me go home and learn new aspects of the UAS industry. I’m a recreational pilot of several years who is currently doing market research in my area with the hopes of turning it into a part time paid gig in the near future. Your podcasts have helped teach me a ton about the possibilities. Thanks and please don’t stop. – Carson (USA)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Incredible insight into drone business

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ What a find!
Just listened to your podcast with a realtor guy named Kurtz. Absolutely brilliant, the best and most honest account of the business I’ve read or heard anywhere. – Gortch (Great Britain)

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a very informative and practical podcast!
I enjoy learning, and I particularly enjoy it when I hear from experienced people who are just regular folks. Sometimes “experts” make something sound simple because they’ve been doing it for years! Whereas none experts remember the degree of difficulty associated with a task…because they are often still building their skills! Hearing from someone who is where I am in my drone interests…or perhaps just a few years ahead is very helpful and encouraging! Thanks for that, and keep them coming! – EM

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Awesome job Chris!
I appreciate the conversations you have with your guests. An optimistic outlook with interesting variety of topics. I am always reenergized to get back at it after listening to your show. You don’t get bogged down with technical industry jargon or try to come across as a know-it-all. Easy to listen to. Keep up the great work. – FRD
