If you are looking to utilize sUAS we provide consulting services, we can assist you with regulatory concerns, equipment selection, standard operating procedures (SOP), FAA compliance and much more.

CHOOSING THE RIGHT sUAS OPERATOR

Things to consider when selecting an aerial imaging service provider
  • Is the operator licensed by the FAA? Operating a sUAS for commercial purpose requires a license from the FAA! You should always ask for a copy of their Remote Pilot Certificate with an sUAS rating.
  • Is the operator insured? There are currently no laws requiring a sUAS operator to have insurance. No reputable sUAS operator would operate without insurance! You should always ask for a copy of proof of insurance.
  • Does the operator have the experience necessary to operate their sUAS safely? Anyone can buy a sUAS and offer services with no experience whatsoever! The FAA requires anyone holding a Remote Pilot Certificate with an sUAS rating to keep accurate flight logs. You should always ask to review their flight logs. We list our safety statistics and flight record on our website. If requested, we are happy to show you our actual flight logs for verification.
  • Does the operator have enough experience to capture the best aerial perspective to help you reach your goal for your required project? Always ask to see examples of their work. We show examples of our work on our site. Be very careful of operators that don't have examples of their work on their website.
  • Equipment is a huge factor when it comes to aerial imaging and aerial video. There are a lot of sUAS on the market, ranging from $50.00 up to 100's of thousands of dollars. As with most professional photography equipment, all sUAS camera platforms are not created equal. DJI is the world leader in aerial imaging sUAS platforms. The DJI sUAS platforms offer the best aerial image stabilization, highest resolution and best quality images and video. We operate a DJI Phantom 3 Professional, DJI Phantom 4 and a DJI Inspire 1 Pro. More information about our sUAS fleet is available below. No matter what equipment is used, you should always ask for sample work done with the platform they intend to use for your project.
  • Things to lookout for when looking at sample work. Over exposure, under exposure, low contrast, high contrast, convex lens distortion and concave lens distortion. See below for a good example and bad examples.
