At Drone Pros, our team of FAA certified drone pilots are very well-versed with the different drones that are on the market today. While there are many different kinds of drones, our pilots prefer to use specific models depending on the aerial imagery and video they are trying to capture.
Exterior aerial imagery and video
When creating exterior aerial imagery, the most common drone model used at Drone Pros is the DJI Mavic Pro 2. The DJI drone brand is popular and used by many creators. There are many impressive features of the DJI Mavic Pro 2 that draw people to use it.
As stated by Digital Camera World, some impressive features on the Mavic Pro 2 include:
a one-inch sensor
an adjustable aperture
all-round collision sensors
All of these features are just some of what makes the Mavic Pro 2 so popular and commonly used. When you are flying a drone, you want to be careful with your surroundings, so having the all-round collision sensors really help to avoid running into things. Given all of the different features, the Mavic Pro 2 undoubtedly is a high quality drone.
Drone Pros’ CEO, Grant Fuellenbach, further explains why the Mavic Pro 2 is a go-to drone. “With the Mavic Pro 2, it's relatively affordable for such a high quality camera. It's very portable, so super mobile.”
When it comes to interior flythroughs, Drone Pros’ pilots need to practice more caution and be better aware of their surroundings. For this, our pilots opt for the GEPRC Crown HD 3” Cinewhoop. According to GEPRC, this specific drone is said to be, “suitable for indoor flight and aerial photography in crowd environments to protect the safety of others”. Having a drone that is made for indoor flight with added protection features to help increase safety is incredibly important when doing interior flythroughs. The GEPRC Crown HD 3” Cinewhoop’s safety measures make it a clear choice to use for interior flythrough imagery and video.
The drone commonly used by Drone Pros’ pilots for 3D modeling is the DJI Matrice 300 RTK. This drone is filled with many features that make it such a high-performing and popular drone. The DJI website does a wonderful job explaining some of these different features so people can better understand.
Some features of the DJI Matrice 300 that stand out include:
Live mission recording
Enhancement to flights with flight times up to 55 minutes and speeds of up to 23 meters per second
All of these different features help to illustrate why the DJI Matrice 300 RTK is a high performing drone. The long flight times and speeds offer pilots ample time to get the different shots they need to create high quality imagery and video.The DJI Matrice 300 RTK’s features, especially the 55-minute flight time, prove to be very helpful to Drone Pros’ pilots when they are creating 3D models.
Even with a large variety of drones on the market today, our professional pilots know how to choose the right drone for the project they are working on. When you work with Drone Pros, you can trust that our pilots will pick the right drone to show your property in the best light and outshine your competition.
