You might ask, why do I need or want a bird’s eye view? The simple answer is a bird’s eye view adds a vantage view point you will never get from a traditional eye level or ground level view.

Up until recently in order to get a bird’s eye view of that special scene it was necessary to either hire a very expensive helicopter, helicopter pilot and aerial photographer, or possibly a clumsy boom, boom crew and photographer, assuming, the helicopter or boom could even access the site.

Unlike helicopters and booms drones are able to access just about any place that people are able to access. Over the past few years there have been substantial improvements in drone technology as well.

Just three or four years ago in order to get quality photos or videos it was necessary to hire a noisy and bulky drone. With the advances in technology drones have become smaller, faster, and much quieter with the same or in many cases higher video and photographic quality.

DroneToGo uses the DJI Mavic 2 Zoom as it’s primary drone. The Mavic 2 Zoom features a 3-axis mechanical gimbal, 1/2.3” CMOS, max video resolution: 4K @30 fps, max photo resolution: 12 MP, 2× optical zoom camera.

Because of the Zoom’s small footprint there are very few situations where it would not be the most appropriate drone for the job.
