Advantages to Remotely Piloted Aircraft for Aerial Photography:

Over congested (populated areas) standard aircraft must stay 1,000 feet above the highest obstacle or terrain feature. Over non-congested areas a standard aircraft must remain 500 feet above the surface but not within 500 feet of any person, vessel, vehicle or structure. Operation of a standard aircraft below these levels is both unsafe and prohibited. In many cases the pilot must concentrate on safely operating the plane or helicopter while a second person operates the camera equipment, which increases the cost.

The optimum altitude for aerial photography is most often between 50 and 200 feet above the ground (AGL) in most situations. A “drone” can provide low altitude angles and views that would not be possible or safe for a fixed wing aircraft or helicopter.

What to Expect:
When you hire an aerial videographer you can expect to generate up to 15 minutes raw video per flight, which will most often edit down to 3 minutes or less of finished video.  Similar services for a “manned” aircraft are from a higher altitude (more distant) of 500 to 1000 ft or more above ground level (AGL).  The difference is cost, perspective and range.
