Approximately one year ago we made an investment to better serve our clients by investing in the latest DJI drone technology. We now cover every possible angle, providing the best, unique, content documentation.

Our first drone was the DJI Inspire 1. We still have not utilized this device to its full potential, however, our clients love using the Inspire’s second remote that gives instant visual feedback with the option to operate the camera and capture photos or videos on their own while we fly.

The smaller, less restricted, Phantom 3 Pro allows us to operate in tighter quarters on many of our projects. Although we have now upgraded to the very new, Phantom 4, this workhorse gives us the option to be a little more care free in cold weather or flights over water.

With only a few flights under our belt on the Phantom 4, all reviews of this rig are stellar. A scary 5km range and a 45mph “sport mode”, can get have you return home in seconds! The camera has greatly improved with better image quality and a super stable, double sided, motorized gimbal. The Phantom 4 is notably heavier and responsive as an F1 car. This added weight is welcomed, providing solid stability and the flight time is not degraded due to long life batteries that last nearly 30 minutes. Lastly, DJI has incorporated some pilot safe-guards with “crash avoidance” censors and air-brakes that can almost stop you on a dime.

Serving the construction industry as we do, we have also been able to offer aerial flight photography from a Cessna 174. Another affordable way to provide a unique perspective on projects big or small for under $1000. What started with archiving Lansdowne Park, 10+ flights, has now moved our focus over to LeBreton Flats and the Zibi Development by Windmill.

Our business in promoting your business. Perhaps your looking at purchasing a DJI drone for your own company, we would be happy to answer any of your questions and give you all of our feedback from our experiences over the last year.
