Wow, great company to fly for!!!!

I have had nothing but positive experiences with this company. They are fast to reply to any of my emails, even if it is just to ask general questions. I recently had an issue with a mission that was 50 miles away, and couldn't complete it do to complications with the management. Dronebase gave me a payment for my drive; that was definitely nice of them to do that. Also, Qwil, which is the payment system they use is fine, as long as it is set up ;) It does take a week or 2 for the money to be deposited in your bank, but you can pay a tiny fee for same day transfer; Qwil isn’t perfect, but it’s not the worse thing. I really cant wait to see what this company has coming down the line, but I will be ready! Thanks DroneBase for a great experience!!!

1 year - no luck

I have waited a whole year to rate this app & company and I really expected better results. I have been signed up with Drone Base for about a year. To date I have only received one notification in which I declined because the reimbursement (payment) was less than the actual gas to drive 2hrs away not even factoring my time and outside costs. I have only once received a notification on my old iphone, the other 3 potential jobs were already contracted by the time an email was received to accept. I think it’s a great concept but I am a little disappointed that I haven’t got a chance to accept viable “missions” in a year. I would love to have my kind changed on this rating but so far it’s been a bummer. I have done everything asked, purchase top equipment, obtain licensing, insurance, and knowledge but nothing on Drone Bases end but a message to sit tight!. Anything?

Smoov danger ,


Considering the FAA doesn’t punish illegal unlicensed commercial fliers, and that dronebase doesn’t do much better other than promise you leads for jobs that don’t pay enough to cover your insurance premium which might be up to 300 miles away... this app is trash and thanks to dronebase and apps like it, they’ve made it all more competitive to the point where playing by the rules hurts you financially.

You’ll make way more money with a cheap website, google ad words, and a little social media marketing than you ever would have with a poorly paying app regardless of how legit it might seem. These folks are trash and offer you $50 for a roof inspection, only to reject it. It’s a waste of time considering I can go market myself, learn how to not get caught, and rely on people being understanding [considering NOBODY CIVILIAN knows about FAA part 107 rules (and why should you!?)]

Screw these turds.
