Hello all, my name is Bryan Pena and I'm from south Texas specifically McAllen. I have recently taken over our UAV drone program and have so many questions on data, hardware, software, I don't even know where to start! This community seems very helpful and informative! I'm absolutely stoked, 

The lost UAV guy!

Welcome aboard, friend.

Fire away with question number one.

I will have zero helpful responses, but at least I can encourage you to get started down the path along our little yellow brick road…

Question number 1:  who is the 'our' - the city of McAllen, border patrol, or a private firm? 

Question number 2:  do you have FAA part 107 certification?

tell us something about your qualifications and what it is you want to do

@hpalmer so I work for a private firm, and we have gotten several engineers and surveyors to get there 107 licenses. (I take my certification on the 8th of November) 

So, my main goal is to become efficient in drone surveying. The first project we have gotten is already behind so I'm applying all of my survey knowledge to this.
