Propellers are standard parts of any drones of most, if not all, models available in the market. While the thrust of rotors is enough to bring these crafts airborne, nothing can beat the extra power and enhanced speed of a jet engine. However, the technology has not been adopted to the compact bodies of drones yet.

Not until AB5 JetQuad.

FusionFlight is successfully rethinking the future of drones with their newest jet-powered craft. The company based in Dallas, Texas, has applied the new approach into quadcopters. According to its developers, AB5 JetQuad is currently the smallest jet-powered UAV that is capable of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL).

The typical set-up of four rotors and propellers is replaced by four micro-turbine jet engines that are powered by diesel. These jet engines can produce around 200 horsepower or 149 kW at full throttle combined.

The engineers at FusionFlight have developed H-Configuration, a proprietary vectoring system. That means the thrust power from the engines can be redirected vertically during take-off and landing. On the other hand, they can also be redirected horizontally when flying.

The current production prototype of the drone can reportedly reach a top speed of more than 300 miles per hour (483 kilometers per hour). 

Additionally, it has 15 minutes of cruising or 30 minutes of hovering at 5-gallon (19-liter) in its fuel tank. The designers are planning to add other components in the future, such as afterburners, that will boost their speed dramatically.

Combining its power and thrust, it can carry a payload of up to 40 pounds (18 kilograms). Cargo can be attached to the drone body itself or using a line dangling underneath. With the latter payload configuration, it will be safe from the blast of the engines as they are never vectored straight below. 

The entire craft body is reported to weigh at 50 pounds (23 kilograms). A full tank of fuel will add another 40 pounds.

How do you make money with your drone, though?

Okay, so you got your new and fancy drone, but how do you stand out from any dad out there who has the same drone and watched some tutorials online?

I did exactly that and barely had any success. 

But now I’m charging 5x as much as before and even have to refuse clients from time to time.

I even bought about 7 online courses… and I didn’t make much progress.

So how did I finally make it to this level?

If you want the short answer, I learned everything from this guy Alex, who’s making $200 per hour with his drone. And he’s even teaching exactly how to do that.

This is pretty much what you need to know:

how-to-make-money-with-drones

1. Make sure you have a proper drone.

If you have any of the latest DJI Drones, like the Mavic Air 2, for example, you’re ready to start making money.

No need to overthink this, but if it’s any help, check this comparison of the best camera drones compared in 2020.

2.Learn how to create the best content to stand out

You won’t stand out from the next dad who bought a DJI drone for Cristmass in the eyes of your clients if you don’t do this.

It’s WAY more important to know what you’re doing than the gear you have.

You’ll need to learn and master the following:

  1.  
  • Flying your drone(to stand out from people with basic drone shots)
  • Preparing for the flight and weather in advance
  • Learn the best drone settings (you need a proper setup template)
  • Create the Video Script (it's way easier if you know what to shoot)
  • Have a set of great cinematic shots you know how to do
  • Know how to edit the video so it stands out
  • Learn how to color grade

This is why you HAVE to invest in a proper way to learn things (instead of watching tutorials here and there).

3.Find clients that pay 5x more than regular

But not so fast.

You won’t make a penny if you don’t know how to find your clients.

I have struggled finding clients even when my videos were getting pretty good.

Until I learned a few tricks and how to find and approach them so they won’t be able to say no.

And what’s best, I learned how to get the price I asked for.

How can you do the same?

I have tested quite a few courses online and watched tons of videos on youtube, but frankly, I have learned more from one single course than from everything else… and all that in like a weekend.

Made back the money from this investment in myself in a single week and then much more.

 

How do I learn all of this? From youtube?

You could simply go online and learn everything in terms of video from youtube, forums, facebook groups etc.

However, let me tell you, it’s the worst way to learn all of this(and the slowest).

You won’t have a Complete Step By step guide on how to do everything.

I found myself frustrated, even after I learned how to do most of the video stuff that I still lacked some knowledge and I didn’t know why my shots weren’t standing out.

I got some general promotion ideas from some articles online, but again… I didn’t have much success and was charging too little for my time.

This is exactly where I learned how to make $200 per hour with my drone (From A to Z)

This course is hold by Alex Harris, who’s an international video creator, director, and drone operator with tons of experience.

And I had a great time stealing his know-how(and greatly profited from it, lol).

I recommend you watch his video presentation bellow and check out the course sales page. It’s quite cheap, considering you’re getting 320+ minutes of everything you need to know, step by step and 80+ minutes on how to actually find the ideal clients for you.
