Books for Drone Photography & Videography

The three books mentioned above are perfect for everybody who’s new to drones and aerial footage. They will help you pick your first drone, understand the basics of flying and what you can do expect your new aircraft.

Furthermore, you will learn about drone photography and videography – an area which many beginners neglect to read further about. Composition, framing, lighting – they all play a huge part of making a truly great photo, and you’ll learn a lot of useful tips and information about all of that.

Overall these books are a must read for every drone pilot that wants the most out of their aircraft, wants to fly safely and take good care of their equipment.

Books for Making Money With Your Drone

If you’re looking for a way to start making money with your hobby, those books are a great place to start. I’ve written an extensive article about Drone Jobs and making money with your drone, but the books undoubtedly represent a much more thourough and in-depth look at the matter.

In order to fly a drone commercially and earn money with it,  you are required to have a “Remote Pilot Certificate” issued by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA).  You must successfully complete the FAA Knowledge Exam to earn a remote pilot certificate.

These books will prepare you for your Remote Pilot Test, and will build a solid knowledge base of all you need to know to start a business with your drone.

Books for Building Your Own Drone

Assembling your own drone, making it look the way you want it to, carefully selecting all the parts – this definitely sounds like the perfect hobby for people who love to build and customize stuff. Not only that, building your own drone will give you a lot more knowledge about flying aircrafts than any RTF drone on the market.

If you love building and crafting with your own hands, then this book will give you insight about mechanics, safety practices and technical parts. You’ll also learn how to pick all the necessary parts yourself, solder and assemble your own aircraft and all of that good stuff.

Extra tip: Check DIY Drones if you want to learn more about building your first drone.
