The Time To Make Stunning Aerial Imagery Is Now

The ability to video and photograph the world from a unique, breathtaking, aerial perspective, using a drone is now available to all. The opportunities this presents for videographers, photographers, hobbyists and professionals alike is extraordinary.

There is a need to learn how to make standout aerial productions, to make imagery that will go beyond what will become the ordinary. Mastering these new tools now, to produce highly impactful results, will get you ahead of the game professionally and give you endless hours of enjoyment personally.

Content and Overview

This course covers basics from selecting your drone, editing software and aerial camera. It has some guidance on initial flying skills and exercises for producing good aerial productions.

The course then goes beyond the basics and introduces, with extensive aerial footage to illustrate the points, a unique framework to guide all your flying and filming missions. This focusses on the extraordinary outcomes you should be aiming for in your aerial imagery and the flying you should be doing to get those outcomes.

You are then taught how to plan your flying and filming missions using this framework. You are taken through a range of unique in-course and online tools & resources to aid you in this planning. You will learn through a real example to show you how to apply the framework and tools to plan a successful flight.

This will be demonstrated by using Final Cut Pro X, but much of the demonstration will concentrate on how to apply the design principles and framework to guide the creation of the aerial video.

What is this course NOT for? Though the course touches on some things to look into from a legal and safety perspective the course is not designed to be a guide on your local drone laws or how to fly & film safely. These are areas that you must know already or that you must go and master before considering implementing any of the techniques in the course. Also - the course is not hardware specific and is not designed to teach you about how to set up any of your own drone hardware or specific handling skills for that hardware.

Make an Open Source Drone

A fun project in which you learn about drones by making one. Use the Pixhawk or Multiwii AIO flight controllers

Created by Dr. Peter Dalmaris - Educator and Author of "Maker Education Revolution".


Students: 6772, Price: $99.99

Students: 6772, Price:  Paid

PLEASE READ: We have just updated this course! We have published a new section in which we show how to upgrade the drone so that it uses the Pixhawk flight controller in place of the Crius AIO V2. During the upgrade, we retain most of the existing drone components. Find more information about the course and the upgrade in the first section (free to watch).


Welcome to "Make an Open Source Drone", a course that will teach you how to build a quadcopter from scratch!

Playing with drones, and especially quadcopters, is fast becoming a very popular hobby. As a hobby, it combines state of the art open technology with large open spaces. It even gives me a great excuse to get out of my lab and get some sun!

While you can just go to a shop and purchase a drone that is ready to fly, by doing so you miss out on all the fun and knowledge that comes with building your own flying machine. I admit I have done that myself. Getting my ready-to-fly drone out of its box and flying it was fun, but only for a short period. 

Soon after the first excitement settled, I realised that I didn't know much more than before I opened the box. I was also unable to do anything more than what the drone was programmed to do, to begin with. 

That is why making your own open source drone is such a great way to have fun while learning. 

in this course, my co-instructor Aristofanis and I will help you understand drones and how to build them. You will learn about their mechanical and electronic components and how they interact. You will learn about the software that provides semi-autonomous flight capabilities to drones. 

Motors, flight controllers, Electronic Speed Controllers, batteries and chargers, receivers and transmitters, and so much more, will all make sense as you progress through this course and go through the process of assembling your drone. 

By the end of the course, apart from being able to assemble your drone, you will have the confidence to perform repairs and to extend its capabilities.

Along the way, you will learn about the principles of drones and many design and performance details for each of the components and software. With this knowledge, you will be able to go on and construct your own drones, configure and program them, all while having a great time doing so.

The course starts by explaining the basic principles of drones. 

You will learn about the types of multi-rotor drones, flight terminology, principles of drone flight, and we will introduce the basic drone components like propellers, motors, the flight controller and more.

Then, you will get into the actual construction of the drone. You will solder the Electronic Speed Controllers to the motors and assemble the drone arms.

You will then solder the ESCs and battery to the power distribution board, and start the assembly of the drone frame.

After that is the radio control subsystem. You will learn about the different types of signalling, connect the radio receiver to the flight controller, and connect the GPS module.

Next, you will learn about LiPo batteries and battery chargers, safety and maintenance. 

With a fully charged battery, you will continue with the firmware and software. You will learn about the MegaPirateNG firmware and how to upload it to your drone. 

You will learn how to bind your radio transmitter and receiver, and then how to calibrate your new quadcopter using the open source Mission Planner software.

As always, we save the best for last! At the end of the course, you will learn how to calibrate the Electronic Speed Controllers and attach the propellers.

And in the end, you will be able to take your drone to a field and launch it, starting to build-up your pilot skills!

As with all Tech Explorations courses, we are here to help you in this exciting learning journey. As a student of this course, you will have access to the Questions and Answers board and interact with the instructors. You can ask questions, and make comments or suggestions. 

Please continue by having a look at the list of parts that you will need in this course. You can find it as a document download in the next lecture

UAS/Drone Remote Pilot Test Prep for Part 107

Drone License Made Easy (updated 2021).

Created by Greg Reverdiau - Flight Instructor, Commercial Pilot, Drone Pilot


Students: 4901, Price: $129.99

Students: 4901, Price:  Paid

Join the most popular Part 107 test prep course on Udemy today. Best-seller, highest rated, taught by the Number 1 aviation instructor on Udemy. Still not convinced? Go read the reviews. And the course is now updated for the latest 2021 regulation (the only course on Udemy so far). Important if you plan to take your exam after April 6 2021. The FAA is adding new questions and you will be ready with this course.

Don't settle for just learning the bare minimum when you can learn what will make you proficient and safe.

Between Udemy and Pilot Institute, I have trained over 100,000 students on how to pass the exam with an average score of 93% and a success rate of 99.8%. This method just works. Many of our customers wasted money with cheaper (and sometimes more expensive!) alternatives before finding our course. 

This course is a comprehensive class that encompasses everything needed to know to become a proficient Remote Pilot and to pass the FAA written (initial or recurrent) exam. It is NOT an overview course that teaches you how to memorize answers. I do not believe in "just passing the test". I want you to become an educated drone pilot who can plan and complete safe missions.

I am a Flight Instructor, Remote Pilot, and Airplane Commercial Pilot who has been teaching aviation for almost 20 years. I understand both the manned and unmanned sides of aviation and I want to help bridge the gap between the two. I love teaching, I love sharing my knowledge and helping students. I have taught over 25,000 students to date with this course on various platforms. I constantly update the videos with the most recent content. I included over 15 hours of lectures, split between 200+ easy-to-follow videos organized in 10 chapters.

By the end of this course, here are a few of the things you will be able to

  • identify all types of airspace on an aeronautical chart,

  • understand which airspace requires FAA approval and know how to receive such approval,

  • read aeronautical charts to identify potential hazards,

  • understand the Part 107 regulation in order to fly legally (updated for 2021),

  • read and understand weather reports such as METARs and TAFs,

  • identify traffic patterns at airports to safely plan missions near runways,

  • forecast potentially dangerous weather phenomenon and ensure safe completion of a mission,

  • understand radio communication procedures in order to maintain situational awareness,

  • determine the factors that will affect your drone's performance,

  • Learn about night operations (new for 2021),

  • successfully pass the initial or recurrent FAA written exam by using knowledge and not rote memory.

The course also contains 350 practice test questions spread over 16 quizzes. You will also be able to practice your knowledge using two (2) initial FAA practice exams. Every chapter references a list of FAA documents that you can download for free online (links included). 

See what other students are saying about this course: 

★★★★★ Great course!! Right to the point and full of good info. I passed my 107 test 1st time!!! Thank you Greg!

★★★★★ Excellent course! I used it as a review for my FAA UAS Recurrent test and to be able to review weather and other topics when I want to. I took my recurrent test 1 day after I finished this course and I got 100% on the test. So glad that I found this course.

★★★★★ I will be 60 in a couple of weeks. I haven't taken a "real" exam in many years. Greg's course was an enormous help to me. His organization of information was perfect. And to be clear, he states in the course that he wants to provide not just the knowledge you need for the exam, but for "real world" experience. But, let me say, not a word of his is wasted.

★★★★★ Instructor is knowledgeable, experienced and passionate. I feel he really cares and wants to see us succeed.

★★★★★ The course is great, unbelievable amount of information and detail. I took the exam a few days after completion and passed with 87%. I highly recommend Greg as an instructor.

★★★★★ I am a retired FAA Instructor /Examiner Air Traffic Controller of 22 years and 8 years USAF, F-16 INS/RNAV Specialist. I taught radar/non-radar and VFR tower operations, designed airspace and approaches. His presentation is professional and complete. You can't flower this stuff up. It's sometimes long and painful. No, it's not for the average person looking to just pass/memorize the exam. You will know this information like a professional pilot. I have never seen so much detailed information relating to current FAA directives and circulars, in any other test preps. This is the course for the serious UAS pilot. I am honored that my UAS Remote Pilot Test Prep for my Part 107 Exam prep was earned from Greg Reverdiau and look forward to other of his FAA related courses.

I will teach you how to set up and execute the following 6 killer shots:

- the Flyby

- the POI (Point of interest) Flyby

- the advanced POI Flyby

- the Orbit

- the Forwards Reveal

- the Backwards Reveal

- 7th bonus material shot: the Corkscrew

You will be able to apply these shots to almost any situation and your ability to shoot awesome cineamtic footage will skyrocket after this course.

You will also have a thorough understanding of the Phantom camera and be able to choose the settings that deliver the best results (Android app only). From now on videography on a drone will be professional, smooth and cinematic.

After this course you will take to the skies with your drone with confidence and the necessary skill set to shoot awesome pro footage!

UAS/UAV (Drone) Remote Pilot Certification Test – Part 107

The comprehensive guide to passing the FAA Drone Pilot Knowledge Exam

Created by Zachary Elliott - Professional Drone Pilot


Students: 1278, Price: $19.99

Students: 1278, Price:  Paid

I have a lot of free content on my website, The Legal Drone (.com), including a full (and free) Ultimate Part 107 Study Guide, which includes a full practice test. Each study guide is also incorporated into the lectures in this video course.

If you want to fly drones (also called UAVs or UASs) in the United States and get paid for it, you must get your remote pilot certificate. This course is different because I recognize that not everyone interested in commercial drone work has a background in aviation. Most content available teaches the concepts for this test from an aviation perspective and without the aviation novice in mind. In addition to the knowledge needed to pass the test, I will provide you with some of the tools that have most helped my drone services business succeed.

I am very active on Udemy, updating the course content on a regular basis (including additional test questions), and answering student questions. I make it a top priority to engage with my students so that each one of you can achieve a passing score on the Part 107 knowledge exam. Several student reviews will show you that this course provides the information you need to take and pass this exam.

Additionally, this course includes access to an active Facebook Group, where you can ask questions about Part 107 as well as other questions related to flying drones commercially in the United States. Finally, I frequently update my Youtube channel with new videos on questions that are frequently posed to me by students.

Applied Control Systems 2: UAV drone (3D Dynamics & control)

Modelling + state-space systems + Model Predictive Control + feedback control + Python simulation: UAV quadcopter drone

Created by Mark Misin - Aerospace & Robotics Engineer


Students: 1275, Price: $99.99

Students: 1275, Price:  Paid

One of the greatest transformations that we will see in the next couple of decades is going to be the advent of autonomous drones. While being used extensively already, the applications of quadcopters will only grow in time. Drones will be used in delivery services, entertainment, medicine, military, rescue, structural quality inspection - places that people cannot reach easily, and in many other fields.

In many cases, there will be a predefined trajectory in a 3D space that the UAV needs to follow without human help. In fact, humans might simply give a simple command for the drone to go somewhere, and then, a specific trajectory will be generated by a computer in that direction and the UAV's control algorithms will need to determine EXACTLY how fast each rotor should turn in order to make the drone follow that trajectory with high-degree precision.

And that's what this course is all about - its about DESIGNING, MASTERING, and APPLYING these control algorithms together with deriving the dynamics equations for the quadcopter.

In this course, you will receive a full package when it comes to learning about how to model and control a UAV drone and make it follow a trajectory in a 3D environment. Not only you will learn how to model a UAV system mathematically by deriving the equations of motion using the principles of 3D Dynamics, but you will also be exposed to some of the most powerful control techniques out there such as Model Predictive Control and feedback linearization.

In 3D dynamics, you will learn the fundamental math and physics behind the UAV quadcopter drone modelling. You will learn how to describe the position and orientation of a UAV quadcopter drone in a 3D space using rotation and transfer matrices, Newton - Euler 6 Degree of Freedom equations of motion, widely used Runge - Kutta integrator in engineering and propeller dynamics.

In the end of the course, I will also explain to you the code in the Python simulator.

Understanding the material in this course fundamentally, being able to quantify it mathematically, and knowing how to apply it using coding - that will give you an advantage in your engineering career that you cannot even imagine yet. It will give you a competitive edge that you need in the labor market.

I'm very excited to start working with you. Take a look at some of my free preview videos, and if you like what you see, then ENROLL in the course, and let's get started right now!

Drone Video for Real Estate Masterclass

The complete, step by step system for creating cinematic aerial videos that sells

Created by R-P Plourde - Ex-Apple Worldwide Facilitator & Professional Videographer


Students: 1226, Price: $119.99

Students: 1226, Price:  Paid

Join over 1000+ of your fellow entrepreneurs, realtors and drone pilots in learning the exact system I used to grow my real estate business from 0 customers to multiple multi-million listing contracts.

I will walk you through every step of setting your real estate business apart from the competition with maximum success.

Whether you’re already in the real estate business or looking into starting your own drone video production studio, this course is for you.


In this Drone for Real Estate Course, you will learn:

  • The Real Estate video industry is oversaturated? Wrong! I’ll explain why in Module 1.

  • What to never do with a drone, and why (If you get this wrong, customers will walk away and you’ll lose a lot of money).

  • How to effortlessly film a property and create a cinematic look.

  • The art of effective video editing that immediately catch the interest of the viewers.

  • How to publish your videos and raise awareness of your brand.

  • What you should do when dealing with clients.

  • And much more!

For way less than the price of a single professional video, my blueprint will teach you invaluable skills that will let you use your drone to its full potential, sell properties quickly and be the envy of your colleagues.

From learning how to fly a drone, dealing with clients, editing and publishing videos, we'll cover everything you need to know, no fluff. If you’ve never flown a drone or have no idea how to edit a video, this course is for you. If you know the basics but want to dig deeper, this is also a course for you.


A contemporary, high quality real estate listing is not complete without a professional looking video. Over the last few years, the proliferation of high quality, inexpensive drones allowed essentially anyone to get into drone video production. The resulting videos tend to be… hideous, often negating all the effort that was put into the filming and editing and making the listing look cheap.

Then there’s the difference between a video that’s of good technical quality and a video that adds this little something. An emotional connection. That’s what sells a property.

Learn how to create professional, emotional real estate videos with my proven step by step system.


By the time you complete the course, you’ll have a complete system designed to approach potential customers and share a portfolio that sells. And the more you use it, the less time it you’ll need to complete a video. So more customers, less time = more money doing what you love.

UAS FAR §107 FAA Drone Exam Preparation – INCLUDES NEW RULES

Prepare to pass the FAA knowledge test for UAS Remote Pilot Certification (RPC)

Created by Tim Trott - FAA Part §107 Remote Pilot Certification Test Study


Students: 887, Price: $54.99

Students: 887, Price:  Paid

You want fly your drone commercially or for public safety. Now you can, after passing the FAA's Remote Pilot Certification exam (UAG). The Drone Professor's video lessons can you get there.  In all, almost 1,000 students studied my courses.

What you get out of this course totally depends on the effort and attention you put into it. It's designed to teach you what you need to know, in the shortest time.  It's all about safety and safety is serious business. It's not really meant to be entertaining.

I am a Part §107 certified drone pilot. I passed the exam on the first hour of the first day it was offered. I teach in terms YOU can understand and relate to. I teach understanding, because understanding is the key to knowledge, and knowledge is the foundation of safety.  I'm certified as a Public Safety instructor by the Florida Department of Law Enforcement and I passed the FAA's Fundamentals of Instruction exam as well.  

This is an accelerated course, designed to give you the maximum training in the minimum time.

Because of my unique background and the way I write my courses, my students are better prepared to score high on FAA exams.  Your goal is to understand what you need to know to pass the FAA exam.  This course represents your good investment toward that goal.

The Course:

The FAA lists twelve specific subject areas which the UAV operator should know to prepare for the Remote Pilot Certification exam, as described in section §107.73  for “initial and recurrent knowledge tests” and in FAA-S-ACS-10, the Remote Pilot Small UAS Airman Certification Standards.

  • (1) applicable regulations relating to small UAS rating privileges, limitations, and flight operation;   

  • (2) airspace classification and operating requirements, obstacle clearance requirements,  flight restrictions affecting small UAS operation;   

  • (3) official sources of weather and effects of weather on small UAS performance;   

  • (4) small UAS loading and performance;   

  • (5) emergency procedures; 

  • (6) crew resource management;     

  • (7) radio communication procedures;   

  • (8) determining the performance of small UAS;   

  • (9) physiological effects of drugs and alcohol;     

  • (10) aeronautical decision-making and judgment 

  • (11) airport operations

  • (12) maintenance and inspection procedures

  • Includes: Operations Over People, Night Operations and Remote ID updates

Those are the areas covered in this training course.

The FAA does not certify drone training courses and does not provide schools with actual test questions. Their goal, and mine, is for you to understand the material, not memorize answers. Please note, however, while the course materials are based on the FAR §107  knowledge testing requirements and the FAA Remote Pilot ACS, the Airman Certification Standards for the UAS exam. The FAA does not provide test questions to instructors, no matter what some may imply.  When my students report what they missed, I revise and update my courses to put more emphasis on those areas.

OVER 850 STUDENTS HAVE ENROLLED IN THIS COURSE. New quizzes and sample tests have been added. Videos are continually updated and revised. Updated for the new rules: Remote ID, Night Operations and Operation Over People.

Student comments:

  • "Tested yesterday, received a 93." (Ammon Hontz)

  • “I used this course and read the supporting documentation and passed the test. I studied for about 4 days
    and watched each video at least twice, some more. Great course!!”

Students: 700, Price: $19.99

Students: 700, Price:  Paid

Flying your drone for the first time can be intimidating for beginners. Am I going to crash? How does the remote control work? How high and how far can I fly? Can I fly at the Grand Canyon? Am I allowed to fly over people? Can I get paid to fly my drone? How do I take cool pictures or cool videos? 

If you've ever asked any of these questions, this course is perfect for you. As an aviator of 15 years (Commercial Pilot and Flight Instructor), Aeronautical University Professor, and as the author of the Best Selling course on how to become an FAA Part 107 Remote Pilot (Commercial license for drones), I will take you through all the necessary steps to complete your first flight successfully. As a future aviator, starting your "career" with good habits is critical.

This course covers the following topics: 

  • Your drone: including the different components, accessories, and best practices.

  • Basic Regulation: I cover everything you need to know about FAA regulation for hobbyists with several short and easy-to-understand videos.

  • Airspace: probably the most important and yet most misunderstood area in aviation. I show you how to find airspace information and how to identify the airspace in which you are about to fly, as well as how to request approval if it's necessary.

  • Weather Information: knowing about the weather can be the difference between a successful flight and a crash. I teach you the basics of meteorology and how to find aviation weather information.

  • Your first flight: I show you how to safely complete your first flight, including how to pick a safe area, how to complete a preflight inspection, how to take off, maneuver, and land.

  • Basic Photography and Videography: in the last two chapters, I cover the basic principles of photography and videography, including aperture, shutter speed, ISO, capture modes (A, S, M), frame rate, HDR, ND filters, and many more. This section will help you take your story-telling skills to the next level.

If your desire is mostly creative excellence, then you will find this is one of very few courses available anywhere that focuses on the creative aspects of drone videography. A camera mounted on a flying machine is a magical tool for storytelling. Let me show you how.

This course does not teach technical drone operations and flying techniques. Instead, it shows you how to use the drone as a camera platform. These are two very different disciplines.

I'm a storyteller and professional filmmaker with 35 years in TV production and YouTube, and I have like so many before me, had to come to grips with the ability to place a camera almost anywhere I want. But in this learning curve, I have realised that drones are far easier to fly than they are to operate as a flying camera. It's so easy to get good shots. But to get a remarkable shots, isn't. And to get shots useful in an edit environment, is even harder. Aerial footage has become commonplace, to the point of being ordinary. This is because the new generation of camera drones are remarkably easy to fly, and have opened exciting portals to creativity. But here is the challenge: Only by capturing remarkable footage can one's creativity stand apart. And what's more, two skills are required to get the most out of a drone camera: You need to be a good pilot, and videographer as well.

This course is for those that need help mostly with the second part. While we demonstrate these skills with consumer-oriented photographic drones, all these lessons apply with even the most advanced, heavy-lift machines.

Subjects in this course include:

  • Take full advantage when positioning a drone camera.

  • Plan shots before takeoff.

  • The vital key to success is the 10-second rule for abundant B-Roll. The biggest problem - solved.

  • Camera settings for best quality and continuity.

  • Constructing a sequence. It's a camera. So treat it like one.

  • Consider the story. What are you trying to say, show or share?

  • Depth and perspective.

  • Speed to fly. When to track. When to pan. When to circle. When to just leave the camera still. The second biggest problem - solved.

  • Using the drone as an extremely tall tripod.

  • Using the drone as a low tripod. Just because it can go high, doesn't mean it should.

  • Image composition principals are often overlooked, but remain the same.

  • Shooting scenics.

  • Building a sequence with multiple cameras and angles.

  • Ever thought about making the drone a character in the story?

I hope you will enjoy and learn much from spending this time with me. And if you want to leave a review, I have one request. Add reasons why you enjoyed, or did not enjoy the course. This is the only way students that follow you will learn from your experience. And the only way I can improve the courses I make.
