Just the word drone gets the Realtors around here all giddy.

Clients like the view from a different angle.

I guess i don't understand your question. Are you referring to being a short video for advertising use. There was 30 minutes of video total which the areas of concern were clipped out for the report. Client loved getting a video of his potential purchase

You answered it, advertising. I expected to see a defect video. Clients do love it and it is a great USP.

Drones for commercial use is highly regulated in MN, and I believe nationwide, as explained on a recent FOX 9 NEWS Minneapolis segment. (Reference the ice fisherman's beer delivery man). Besides, I feel better about a hands on "touch and feel" inspection of what I am making recommendations for. It seems more credible to me. The use of a drone/camera almost seems more like an inspection with a lot of "limitations" which our clients do not like. Because of this we rarely rely on pictures. I recommend that anyone considering using drones check with their standard of practice of which they are Nationally Certified under to make sure that it is allowed to practice the use.

Regulation and enforcement aren't matching up...I'm not sure Minnesota has any particular regulations outside of the FAA regs which aren't even clear at this point.

If I were inspecting and using a drone, I would wish for the FAA to nail me. I'd get my home inspection business on the cover of USA Today. I don't care what the fine is, it's worth it.

I use my copter/drone on every inspection I can and clients are really impressed !
When a certification comes about I will do what I need to do to comply.

Agreed. Until then, arrest me!

FAA, you have my address. You've grounded me before. Let me be the first- the guy that told every inspector to use these things. I have one and I'm going to charge someone a fee for a picture of their roof today.

Come get me. Please.

I bought a DJI drone but the camera view wasn't working right so I sent it back. Maybe better luck with the next one.

I'll wait until spring though since snow will be covering the roof most of the time pretty soon.
