We recently had the opportunity to film a gorgeous 75-acre property for a ranch listing in North Texas. We included a link to the aerial photos in an earlier post, and now we're thrilled to show off the stunning aerial video we captured on that sunny spring day!

Hey guys, I know this is a 2 hour video, however even with my massive amount of ADHD, it was very worth the time to watch this weeks congressional subcommittee hearing.

It was a BEAUTIFUL day.....
Aerial Photo in Dallas
Today I Flew a roof inspection of the Crescent Office Towers. I am the spec at the top center of the image standing on the roof.

The Roofing company needed to get a count of the slate tiles that are damaged or missing. Repelling was the only other option they had with the extreme Pitch of the roof.

As cool as the shot is, what most people don't realize is that the property owners lease an immense amount of space in the roof for cell towers and other electronic transmitters and receivers. These obviously can cause interference with your command and control radio, As well as your video downlink transmission.

Prior to accepting a job like this, it is critical that you have specific UAV liability insurance for your drone. For all of our birds, We carry a $1 million per Bird policy. With property owners being more educated, most will require a certificate of insurance for the specific gig.

With all that said, let me geek out for second and simply say, I have the coolest job in the world.

The Beautiful Scenery of #Catacamas   #Honduras  

While shooting some documentary footage of a couple of missionaries, I was able to meet with the mayor of Catacamas Lincoln Figueroa, and senator Alfredo Moradel.

Set the the Honduran National Anthem, this aerial of the flag was while at city hall, and the mountain views was from Senator Moradel's family retreat north of the city about 10 min into the mountain range.

The Cerro de la Cruz, (Hill of the Cross), is a beautiful landmark high above the city nestled in the green lush of the mountainside.
