Shortly after passing my Part 107 license exam (2022), I made the decision to return to school with the aim of enhancing my skills and knowledge as a licensed drone operator. Throughout the semester, I had the valuable opportunity to collaborate with various drones, software programs, and industry professionals. The drones utilized included the DJI models: Mavic 2 Pro, Mavic 2 Thermal, Mavic 3, Phantom 4 Multispectral, Air 2S, Matric300 RTK, Matric300 RTK Zenmuse H20T, and Inspire 2, as well as the Autel EVO and SwellPro SplashDrone 4. The software programs employed encompassed Pix4D, Drone Deploy, ArcGIS Pro, Map Pilot Pro, Air Control, B4UFLY, and UAV Forecast.
