    Also, the reason why there are some questions that is related to a air plane is because there are people who actually fly unmanned airplane that is a fix wing and still need to understand the physic, airport marking and all that stuff related to aviation.. or think of the UAV in the military.

    As a private pilot, I wish private pilot exam was this easy lol. I just bought a Autel Evo 2 drone yesterday and am planning to take my part 107 as well. Even though, I plan to just to take photo and record video. But taking the part 107 is just to be safe.

    I was under the impression that latitude was lateral, not vertical and as such they are parallels. While longitude is up and down, meridians, intersecting at the polls.

    ATTENTION: AS OF APRIL 2021, THERE IS A NEW REGULATIONS SECTION.
    I studied this video (Which was great) – But did not pass my test.
    The new section WILL be about 20% of the NEW test you will take, as of April 2021. I also got a 55% which would make sense if it is 20% new questions!!

    Be advised.

    Question…at 9:07 you say to stay 500 feet below clouds…then you give an example in which the clouds are at 600 feet….then you say that you can fly to 200 feet….wouldn't it be only a hundred feet?…Or is there something that I did not catch?…..Thank you for the video..it is a tremendous help

    I know this is like being a grammar nazi but high and low density altitude is semantically wrong. It just causes confusion. If they are trying to communicate the effects of density at at given altitude then they should use the phrase high and low altitude density. It is just confusing and illogical. If you say low density altitude, the logical thought takes you to an altitude that has a low relative density, not a low altitude. My propellers should function better at a higher density altitude(ie 50'), than a lower density altitude(ie 400"). Am I wrong in this semantic opinion?

    FAA is cracking down on youtubers due to "Intent" to make money from your Drone. They will give you a warning first for the standard $100,000 fine. Just get the 107.

  8. Matt.Cook.Oregon

    My man Tony. Passed today. Thank you. Some of the frequency questions were tricky, pretty sure I missed both of those. I think this and other videos along with reading is more than enough to pass. Unless you need someone to push you through learning, then a course would be good.

  9. Nathan

    04/29/2021 I took my Part 107 exam today and passed thanks to you! I
    passed with a 78% I was hoping for better but ill take it. They did have
    a few questions regarding the new night time regulations and how that
    has changed.

  10. Corey Torf

    I passed my test first try. This prepared me for the test. But you must learn how to read the charts and use the workbook properly. Only a few questions on actual facts. and remember there is no difference between 99% and 70%, Thank god!

  11. Johnny Doe

    Are there any steps that need to be taken before taking the test? any kind of certifications or anything?
    At the FAA site they keep warning you to make sure you are clear to take the test, and if you are not, your results will be invalid and you will lose your money.

  12. Aaron Cline

    I listened to you everyday on the way to work and home and throughout the day, and studied a bit. Just wanna say thank you for putting this information out there. Very well put together

  13. Andrew Lawlin

    Passed with an 85% this video was super helpful and watching it twice and doing practice tests were great!
    You got this!! 4-23-21

    I have dyslexia and makes studying for this kinda thing harder but putting in a ton of work to get some of the info down was so worth it!

  14. R H

    Thank you! THis Video twice along with one on night flying and sectional charts got me a 82% after 4 days of light study. Maybe I lucked out with the easiest questions. But this video cleared my anxieties and let me focus on the nessicary information. Super thankful! your are a kickazzz teacher.

  15. Philip Muir

    Tony Just wanted to say thank you for this video. I know that you put a lot of time into it. I started to study with Drone U and found the extremely long videos challenging to follow. I will say that after watching this video last night I was able to pass the test this morning. This is probably almost everything you need to pass.

  16. Randall Ureña

    Passed watching this video x2 and going over the study guide. I also watched another video on sectional charts and glad that I did. Thanks Tony! I am going to check out your store shortly.

  17. Flyin’ Eye Aerial & FPV

    Took the exam today and passed with a 75% all thanks to watching this video about 2 times and also writing down all the information as Tony goes through it all. The test booklet that you get to use that you refer to for all of the test questions was dated and published in 2018. Today is 4-22-2021 and they are still using that same booklet. So even though this video Tony made is over 3 years old, it still is the only thing needed to pass this test. DO NOT PAY FOR AN EXPENSIVE COURSE! USE THAT MONEY TO SCHEDULE YOUR TEST INSTEAD! I REPEAT, DO NOT BUY ANY COURSES. This video and the practice test questions provided for free are the only things you will need for this course. Tony, Thank you for taking the time to do this free of charge. What you have done has helped thousands at this point get their Part 107 Remote Flyers Certification.. Love your style Tony and all your tips and even the little jokes along the way. I look foward to using your channel to learn more about camera settings here soon. God Bless
