I want to buy a drone for real estate, my question is if you know what are the minimum requirements or if you know any web page or any tutorial.
Here is my take on this question along with some real estate drone resources:
- If you are just starting out you are probably willing to go with a GoPro size camera. Something like the DJI Phantom 3 shown above. The technology in this area is getting better and better very fast.
- If you are a new drone pilot UAV Boot Camp is a good place to start learning how to fly.
- Colin Smith has a DVD with 9 hours of instruction on DJI Phantom 3 and Inspire 1.
- DroneLife.com is a blog that focuses just on purchasing, or hiring a drone for photography.
- DroneLawJournal.com, by Peter Sachs, is my favorite reference for Drone Law. Drone Law is a confusing subject and Peter, who is a Lawyer and a Drone enthusiast helps sort out the facts on Drone Law.
- Real estate photographers getting started with drone photography/video should carefully consider if shooting their own aerial video is worth the expense and risk. There are many businesses that are specializing in shooting aerial photography/video that you can hire.
I sure there are many readers that can help fill in and expand these resources and recommendations on which drone to buy for real estate photography/video.
