Just a commercial for their company

Any additional comments?

I've listed to their podcast and youtube videos and they are fun and informative. I was hoping the book would be more so. I think I took away two or three really useful facts and then spent over half of the book listening to Paul tell us how great Drone U is. Drone U is the company the three writers/contributors of the book run and this book is little more than a running commercial for their subscription plan. Yes there is a "free" plan but all the real content you need to pay the $50/month plan. For a pro UAV pilot I'm sure this is a no brainer and if I do end up getting my UAV lic I'm sure I will happily pay the monthly fee for access to their community. HOWEVER I don't feel I needed to buy their book just to listen to a commercial for their company. To be fair, they are hardly the only entrepreneurs to have committed this sin. Still, if you are an amature or just curious I'd recommend just watching their videos on youtube. If you are a pro, then get the subscription. Either way, I'd recommend passing on the book. Lastly, for a group of guys who do media for a living the audio in this book is BAD. No consistency, bad jump cuts, tin can sound. Their drone videos are amazing not sure what happened here.
