Digital 1 Photography flies nearly every day (where possible) and delivers aerial photographs within 24hrs of capture.

Drone Questions answered
Drone photography throughout Sydney suburbs is becoming increasingly popular. Home sales agents are trending towards an aerial view of the property for sale. The cost of drone photos for a house for sale is not very expensive at all providing that we are already there to capture photos of the house for sale anyway. We are drawing up floorplans and photographing the home for marketing purposes and
taking an extra aerial photo isn't difficult at all. Many real estate agents throughout Sydney are taking advantage of our lower rates on drone photography.
How long do drone photos take?
Usually, around 10-15 minutes is all it will take to capture your home from the air. Providing that all the checks and balances are correct to fly. if weather conditions are on our side we will fly the drone without any problems. We never take chances when flying our drones around any properties and must check all clearances and distances before doing so.
How many aerial photos do I need?
Once we are cleared to fly our drones, you will probably find that 2 or 3 correctly composed images are all that are needed to market your property correctly. Usually, the first aerial photo is from directly above your property showing the correct shape of the block of land that is for sale. next, we may take a high oblique angle that can identify where the property is in relation to other locations nearby. Schools or shopping centres and even train stations can be of importance to property buyers looking for a home for sale.
What type of Drones do we use?
At Present we are using the DJI phantoms, as they are very quick to set up for flying and very stable in windy gusts. When taking aerial photos of your property we prefer to use more stable equipment. Because the Phantom systems are very balanced in the air we can guarantee very clear real estate aerial photos every time we shoot. It is essential to achieve clear colourful property photos fro the air so that iconic markers can be seen easily in the property marketing printouts and online. Sometimes real estate agents will ask for special points to be marked so they can target a niche audience with their campaign. So given the special requirements of our agents, we need to offer something higher quality than just a cheap drone or quadcopter. It would be fair to state that 60% of all our real estate photoshoots are with the inclusion of a drone photo.
Even if we are just creating a site plan of the property, our photographers will still take an aerial photo so that we have a current visual of the block of land for sale and all gardens and pathways to be able to map out correctly
How long can a drone fly for?
Most high-end drones can stay in the airport approximately 20 to 25 minutes. There are larger models with greater battery capacity to fly longer and further however these come with a great expense. To keep it simple, your average drone can last 15 to 25 minutes before the battery runs out. Drone Pilots using drones for commercial use generally only need 3 to 5 minutes to cover whatever it is they are trying to capture. Drone piloting becomes very efficient once you have flown a drone many times. You get to know your equipment and you get to know it's limitations. Aerial photography or video generally only require under 10 minutes to perform, capture and then land safely.
How do you control a drone?
Most drones will have a remote control that allows you to operate the aircraft. Remote control generally will have 2 Toggles. One toggle is to push the aircraft higher or lower and that very same toggle will rotate the aircraft turning left or turning right. The secondary toggle allows forward movement and backward movement. This secondary toggle on the drone handset will tilt the drone forward dropping its nose, not unlike a helicopter which will make the drone move forward. If you push to the right or the left on this toggle The drone will dip and head in that direction. So one is for turning and height in the other is for Direction. It takes some time to understand. But once you're flying your drone in an open field for about half an hour you get the idea quite quickly. The difficulty in flying any drone can be the wind and its effects on the aircraft. Gusty days with strong wind should be avoided when flying any drone. Generally, this will be why drones go off track and get lost. Most people piloting a drone will have a good understanding of the weather conditions and their effects on flying.
How high can you fly?
The normal flight altitude capacity is 120mm. It is against the law to fly any higher than this without special permission. Once you go past 120m you tend to be flying in airspace that could otherwise the alongside aircraft like helicopters and low flying aeroplanes.
What type of drone is good for fun?
There are so many drones on the market today it's hard to know which one to buy. The cheapest drones come in at around $20 and a miniature versions of larger models. They are very difficult to fly and this is because they are without any guidance software. What I like to call Raw flight. The larger models will have a GPS guidance system which holds them in place smoothly and accurately. No matter which one you purchase they are all a little bit fun to fly.
How safe are drones to fly?
Flying a drone is relatively safe so long as you follow the rules. By following the rules laid out for drone flying you can navigate socially or commercially very safely. Normally when there's an accident involving a drone it's because of a malfunction which is rare or because of blatant stupidity by the drone pilot. Common sense plays a huge part whenever you fly your drone. You must always keep your drone in sight and always obey the altitude rules for flying and the proximity rules as well.
As with any activity or hobby or even job for that matter, drone flying does come with risks. The drone dangers can be minimised with pure common sense. If it looks too windy don't fly your drone. If it is raining, again don't send the drone skyward. If you're in a crowded place certainly do not use your drone.
Aerial photography in Sydney has become quite popular amongst real estate agents. Being a drone pilot requires some certification and registration. Drone pilots throughout Sydney are required to catalogue every flight. They are also required to notify Casa how many commercial flights that will be undertaken by the drone pilot. Drone pilots have a duty of care like any industry and Aerial property photography is the same.
