As a part of our pilot community, you’re able to browse through local “missions” and fly your drone to capture the requested aerial footage. There’s a guaranteed payout on all client missions, and pano missions are a great way to get comfortable with capturing aerial imagery (of course, if a client decides to purchase the content you’ve captured, you’ll get paid, too!).
