It started off simple...a simple Parrot Mambo bought about two years ago...Fell in love with the act of flying and the grainy little pics I could get back....then got the FPV camera which made it a bit more fun. I have relatives in the real estate business in the DFW area who tell me that their agents all are looking for pilots to do marketing material for home sales. I made the leap into the larger world about 8 months ago. Currently prepping to get my FCC 107 license and bought a cheap Phantom V1 to learn, crash, and enjoy. It's clumsy and low tech, but I love every flight I take it on. I'm on the verge of getting a Mavic 2 now that I'm confident enough now, though there is still that little whoosh of anticipation when it first takes off. Hoping with time, patience, and determination to slowly scale back my IT job and move into another world. Glad to be here!
