An eye in the sky provides an easier, safer and more efficient solution to accessing points difficult to reach from the ground, such as roofs, bridges, and wind turbines. During the inspection process, images and video may be streamed live for instant interpretation.
An aerial vantage point provides a unique perspective which will leave an unforgettable and eye-catching impression for both personal and promotional events. Capture your memorable moments such as weddings, concerts, and sporting events from an aerial view to further enhance those memories you will remember for a lifetime. Make your marketing materials stand above the competition with aerial photos and videos which showcase your business in a breathtaking and modern way. Real estate, wineries, resorts and golf courses are ideal examples of where aerial media can be a very powerful visual tool.

The platform we utilize for aerial imaging is the state of the art Inspire 1 UAV produced by DJI. The Inspire is designed around the high resolution camera which is stabilized by a three axis gimbal for ultimate image clarity and smoothness. The Inspire is also unique in that the landing gear fully retract, thereby allowing the camera an unobstructed view in all directions. The UAV itself is stabilized via an onboard GPS which allows for a precise flight path to follow while also allowing for pinpoint hovering as it self corrects for changes in wind direction and speed. The DJI Inspire is literally a rock solid tripod in the sky.
