From Cinematography to Industrial Drone Flying

Recommended Posts

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!

It's not necessary to get 3 separate drones. For different applications, you'll need to consider about using different payloads (different types of cameras), but with one drone featured with decent loading all along, like 5KG or 6KG.
