  • Thank you Larry!

  • Tony’s course is very good and well worth the hour plus. Particularly like his hints on test taking discussed throughout, including eliminating the obviously wrong of the three, and generally, if not a unit within the FAA (i.e. military permission, etc) it is not the answer as it is a test for FAA certification. Also, there are some less lengthy suggested videos that will pop up that are good reinforcement of what Tony discusses ands may present it from a slightly different angle or emphasis. Finally, Tony ha another video not related to the exam – How to fly a drone safely (without crashing) – demonstrating 8 basic maneuver steps to practice over and over, at least one battery charge for the simple take off landing to multiple battery charges for more complex maneuvers such as reversed controls.

  • Yes, thanks you for this Larry.

  • Larry, THANK YOU so much for introducing me to the Northrups’ channel. I will be taking the drone test in the next 2 weeks, and this could not have come at a better time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

  • Brilliant! THANK YOU!!

  • I think it is wonderful this video is available, however…. I only watched just a couple of minutes and… as much as I don’t enjoy saying it… there seems to be some incorrect information (as far as I have learned from in this video… .

    2 examples:
    1. The max weight of the drone is not 55lb, but rather… up to 55lb but… Not Including 55lb. If the drone is 55lb, then it is not legal to fly it. Detail, but it may cost you a correct answer.
    2. Flying up to 400 AGL… . Generally yes, but if someone is flying and inspecting for example a structure, tower or building, etc, then they can fly up to 400 ft above as long as they are within, I think, 400ft from the tower.

    Anyway, as I said I did not watched this video in it’s entirety (I did recently passed this test), but I used to study and passed test with 84%.

    Just a bit of a warning to make sure you have your info correct.

    If I am wrong… I apologize… .


  • I have just checked “Free FAA Part 107 sUAS & Drone Certification Study Guide” and… information given here is 100% correct… so please just make sure you use these numbers.
    1. 400 feet. The maximum height you can fly AGL or above a taller building within a 400-foot radius.
    2. 55 lbs. Heaviest legal drone (must be less than, not equal to, 55 lbs).

    I did not mean to confuse anyone, but I think I heard incorrect info on the video… .

    Good luck to everyone on a FAA Part 107 test.
