Drone Aerials


What Houzz contributors are saying:

Soellner says drones help with driveway alignments. “When a client has dozens or hundreds of acres, the entry road can be a mile long,” he says. Using a drone with Google Earth and topography from a good survey together helps determine a good alignment. I’ll do a flight check on the drone filmography against a questionable area on Google Earth, which is perfect, but once in a while there will be a drop of 50 feet and you look at Google imagery and say, ‘Naw, there’s nothing there.’ So you use aerial recon to help.” He then uploads the video to YouTube and embeds a link in a PDF report that he gives to clients. Cheaper Than a Helicopter Photographer Greg Eymundson has come to rely on his drone, too, taking shots that get used in real estate print advertising. To do aerial photography six or seven years ago, he was renting a helicopter at $2,400 per hour, and since he was charging clients $200 for the shots, he had to call around and get multiple clients onboard for the endeavor to be cost effective. “There were limitations to how low I could fly over populated areas — 200 feet is the lowest — so the shooting was difficult,” he says. “And my mother wasn’t too happy about me hanging out of a helicopter without a door.” Now he just sends up his GPS-controlled drone — a eight-rotor DJI Phantom that cost about $1,400 — with an attached high-definition GoPro camera, and gets everything he needs without his feet leaving the ground.
