  1. I want to take a moment to personally thank you for taking the time to put out this information. Something as simple as where and how to take the Part 107 exam had been overlooked. I actually searched online for my area FAA approved testing facility and found two of them. I had been calling and leaving messages ALL week and got no response. A quick look at your video and I simply followed the link you included below and I was able to book everything online for December 6th and pay for it. Piece of cake!Thanks again and wish me luck.

  2. This has been the best video on taking the Part 107 test. I can't tell you how many YouTube videos I've watched and yours has been the best. I already purchased the Remote Pilot app and now I'm going to save the other 2 you suggested. Thank you for your time.

  3. Hey Tom, I'm taking my exam tomorrow and find this video super helpful. I've been hard studying for the past week with Tony's video and a few others on youtube and found this one one of the most helpful so far. I had no idea about the application after you pass but now I do. Hopefully ill pass tomorrow and ill be sure to update you on either outcome. Sadly I've gotta drive 3 and a half hours to my testing facility so really don't want to fail. Again great video!

  4. in just 5 days of following your video and watching tony northup video a few times and using the android app for testing i am now on the 86 to 93 average everytime i do the sample tests,going to take the FAA part 107 one day this week,overall i would say i put about 16-20ish hours in studying thanx for the help

  5. Thank you for all of this! Especially what to expect on the test day. You said they don't allow you to take anything in. Any idea if they will allow you to take some water? Might sound stupid, but I can't really go an hour without some water. Lol.

  6. Yeah Robert Hartloff couldn’t have said it better I have spent last 2 weeks searching and wondering
    Wtf lol but now I know what I need
    And was lucky enough to already have found Donald’s video now can’t wait to check out Matt’s
    Thank you !!!!!

  7. Thanks for this video. I have been flying rc since the early 80's. I started flying drones 5 yrs ago and I love it. When they started with the rules and laws we all knew were coming I parked them for 2 yrs. I was posting videos on youtube and quit doing that because of the monetary issues. Just decided to play it safe. Then decided to get my favorite drone out for a flight a couple weeks ago and still hooked. Ordered another high end drone to get back into it and started checking on getting drone liscence. Ive been so confused for the last 2 weeks trying to figure out what I needed to do and what I needed to have. Now I kind of have an idea what I need to do! Thank you,   Bob

  8. Where do we find the information about the background check and who's allowed to become a certified person in command? So all citizens and buy and fly for fun, but only some can become employed?

  9. Lol I’m about to make the call for test. I’ve done exactly what you have done to study all the way to watchin Tony’s video twice now. What’s so cool is I thought I knew it all because of my practice test scores, but I still learned from you on how to go about taking it and after. So keep up the good work that was sweet. Oh and I hit your sub button. Man I hope I score like you cause I don’t want to just pass.
