I’m legal. The drone is legal. Time to fly.
As I don’t yet have my permanent certificate number, I can’t use the FAA’s app to request clearance to go above 200 feet. Outside of regulated airspace, it wouldn’t be an issue. But I live just a little too close to the downtown airport. No big deal. The 200 foot ceiling is plenty.
I lucked into some excellent light, too. Uneven clouds were blowing through, leaving puddles of brightness all over the landscape.
