What is the waiting time?
Generally one of our pilots can get to your job within 24hrs within our operating area. If you are outside our normal area, there will be a small travel charge to cover drive time.
How much does a drone inspection cost?
Starting at $150 for a basic photo shoot, and it goes up from there based on the job. Our prices are always fair.
How long do drone inspections take?
The time will vary based on the job. A roof inspection can take 40mins, whilst a search and rescue mission and take 2hrs. There is generally reporting time ontop of this.
Do you do insurance work?
Absolutely. Some of Australia’s largest insurers use our service. We take the images and get them off to your insurance company within 24hrs. You would need to pay for our service and reclaim that from the insurer, but you need to confirm this with the insurer prior to engaging us.
How good is the camera on your drones?
The best. We use a 20MP camera which offers you amazing images that you can edit how you wish, without losing image quality.
Do you train drone pilots?
Not officially, but we are happy to train new drone owners of DJI products on the basics. We will get you up and flying, teach you the features of the controller, and give you a few insider tricks to better drone flying (Like emergency procedures if your return to home fails, or you get into a fly-away situation).
You need to bring your own drone, and we will meet in an area where it is legal for you to fly. This type of training will speed up your RPL training… you are best to go to the training school knowing how to fly.
Call for training cost.
Do you do building inspections?
We do the roof inspection portion of the building inspection for the inspector. Some roofs are slippery, to high pitch or simply uninviting for the inspector to get up there. In this situation, we provide the inspector with the images and observation comments for the report. This type of inspection also relieves the inspector of alot of health & safety hazard issues.
Can you video sporting events?
Yes we can. If you have a local event, school event or commercial event, we can video any of these for you in either 720p, 1080p HD and 4K… depending on what it’s for.
Surfing, jet skiing, fishing, motorcross, soccer… any event is possible. We can even live stream to Facebook if required!
Some events may not be possible if flying over people is required.
Do you offer Contradeals for your drone work?
Yes we can look at your offer.
We would mainly be open to contradeals with hotels and food establishments. If you have a service that you think could help our business and would like to swap services, give us a call!
