Russell in Oregon asks:
I've been looking at the new DJI Spark drone for shooting interior videos. These drones are almost "micro size" with the 2-axis gimbal and because you are shooting inside, I don't believe there is any certification required from the FAA. I'm wondering if anybody else is considering this or currently shooting video inside with a drone?
I've thought about this too. I've noticed that some people shooting drone video like moving through the front door and moving around over furniture. Here is an example from about 3 years ago so it's not done with a DJI Spark.
Sure, you don't have to register with FAA to operate a drone inside a home but it would be hard to explain to clients why you are not setup to shoot the usual drone views from outside. Certainly, if you are flying around in someone's home you are going to want to have drone insurance.
The example above illustrates some things to consider when trying to shoot a walkthrough video with a drone:
For all these reasons, if you are going to shoot interior video, I think you are much better off shooting with a quality video DSLR or mirrorless camera and gimbal.
Have any readers out there tried shooting interiors with a drone?
