Today we have a two part question. The first part is about the benefit (if any) of advertising a private pilot license. The second part is about carbon fiber blades.
Our caller is a manned pilot who has just ventured into the drone business. He is wondering if using carbon fiber blades on his Phantom 4 Pro can help him in any way. Paul deep dives into this topic and we suggest all possible pros and cons that our caller needs to be aware of.
The second part of this question is about using your private pilot license to market your drone business. Is this a good idea? Rob and Paul are in different camps on this one. Tune in to find out if they manage to arrive at a consensus. Thanks to the caller for the wonderful question. Fly Safe!
