    Wanted To Hire: Drone/Quadcopter Enthusiast & Talented Writer

    We're a small company based in LA that, among other things, makes video product guides for YouTube and the web.

    Here’s basic guide we made about drones:

    https://wiki.ezvid.com/best-drones

    We are now starting a new venture: We’re starting a Q&A (question and answer) website dedicated to drones, quadcopters, and UAVs.

    We’re looking to hire a writer who is a drone enthusiast who will be our “staff writer” for this website -- both to answer user questions and to write highly detailed and technical articles about drone subjects.

    We want someone who can really get into technicalities, with multi-thousand word posts like this http://thewirecutter.com/reviews/best-drones/ …. and also provide really excellent responses to queries from our users… these are some actual queries we’ve received, and we want really long and detailed answers with lots of pictures:

    “What is the best drone for photography?”

    “Do you know of a drone with over an hour of sustained flight?”

    “I am thinking of buying the drone DJI Phantom 2 for my precocious son (we live in California) and I have heard that there are FAA regulations regarding its use and that I may need a permit for it. Could you pl let me know if this is the case, and if there is anything else like this that I should be aware of?”

    Note: This website will be about consumer drones, not about military drones, conspiracy theories, etc. etc.

    This is a PAID position. We’re not sure yet if it should be paid per month, per article, per word, or what, but we can work this out. You can be located anywhere in the world.

    We’re aiming for 10 to 20 hours per week of work, but you can generally work whenever suits you.

    If you're interested, please contact us at https://www.ezvid.com/contact

    Thanks!

    I'd be willing to do this.
    But you'd have to supply me with the drones to test fly.
    My philosophy on writing is, KISS!
    Keep it simple stupid!
    I currently own a Phantom 1 and 2. Would love an inspire 1 or Phantom 3.
    I feel most hobby pilots are not all that technically inclined anyway so getting into things that are well above their heads is a waste of time.
    Compensation negotiable but a minimum of $500 a week is required.
    But there are already a number of youtube videos on every drone there is.
    Why is yours any different?

    We're still looking for the right person for this. The website will be here... there isn't much there yet....
    http://answers.ezvid.com/ ...... We can definitely pay, so don't hesitate to inquire if you're interested in the gig. It could be great for a drone "nerd", who loves drones and loves to write and talk about them...
