From Cinematography to Industrial Drone Flying in 3D / GIS / Land Surveying / Mapping Posted August 2, 2019 · Report reply Hello UAV community, For the past 4 years, I have been working as a drone operator and aerial cinematographer around the United States. I recently moved to Puerto Rico to pursue a documentary project and have decided to start a different kind of drone business with a local colleague. I am looking for advice on the most popular drone models that are currently used for damage/structural inspections, 3D mapping, and surveying (I understand that this is probably 3 separate drones). I could repurpose my Mavic Pro and Inspire 2 for this venture, but I imagine there are systems that are better suited for this work. While I have extensive experience flying for film and documentary clients, this is a totally green area for me. Any help pointing me in the right direction would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
