14 CFR § 107.61

As long as I am at it...might as well get a commercial drone license so I can legally earn some money with my Mavic Pro.  Studying to pass the knowledge test to earn a Remote Pilot Certificate with a Small UAS Rating from the FAA.  This will also involve a road trip as the nearest testing center is in Big Spring about 60 miles east of Odessa.  (Maybe I will stop by and visit Medical Center Hospital where they patched up my leg.)  88,92,73,0,B

1. There isn't much "ag" out here. 2. An entry level agricultural drone is about $20,000.

How time flies. TY remmij for the drone info. Many years ago, my big Germanic, blue eyed cousin lost her beloved fiancée when he was killed crop dusting in the plane. She was devastated. But her black roommate introduced her to a friend who she married and later divorced. Their 2 children are almost 60 now. Do not know much about them in CA because they left our family, but everything is well for them now.

lots of different 'AG" roles ...get ready for autonomous tractors that run 24/7. Get ready for robot "pickers"... don't restrict to "drones" that "look"... think about autonomous vehicles that "look" and... "do"...
