Yes you do! We put our P4P on $1m liability. It’s with the same firm that does the rest of our construction equipment and company trucks so we got a pretty good deal. :wink:


I hope DD / Droneinsurance.com offerings include a ‘named pilot’ policy which makes it affordable for single and small operators to insure the Remote Pilot and not the uavs they own which is standard for many uas policies and is complete overkill for small ops.
