    Is anyone using the Phantom 3 Advanced for commercial use. I have been sharing my photos on twitter and getting a lot of local interest, as my account has grown I have now had my 3rd request for commercial work for a local event (I have turned down the last 2 obviously) so seriously considering getting my PFAW.

    My question is, if I get my PFAW, would working with the P3A even be possible? As I understand, once I have this I can then apply to the CAA for use commercially and have to wrote risk assessments amongst other things for each project. Does the phantom fail when it comes to safety around people? I'd be doing fairly low level work so don't see the need just yet to upgrade to an S1000 or something more modular. Do the CAA view quadcopters as a collective or as individual models? The last thing I want to do is complete the course to find out that my Phantom isn't accepted as a safe drone for work.

    Thanks for any help!
