    Be nice to not have to use a ladder to survey attachment points on a tall building. Inspections would be a snap too.

    halfway house.
    I thought it'd be great for wide format estate prints.

    I've had a DJI Phantom drone with a GoPro and black pearl HD video screen for about a year now. I'm sure it would work great for on-site inspections etc. as the picture quality and video are amazing. John

    Maybe I'm late to the game with this thought, but it seems that drone aerial footage of a home would be a useful selling tool for realtors. Through the realtor's web site, potential buyers could see the outside of the house, back yard, and neighborhood.

    Having said that... the same would hold true for signs I would think. A business could post aerial footage of signs, banners, etc. Something just a bit more interesting than still shots.

    Is that what your footage is for Moze... home sales?

    Most realtors are already all over it.

    Privacy is one concern.

    The other is like remote controlled cars, it is so cheap, every household could have one. Can you visual the airspace?

    In California, we had at least 3 incidences that fire fighting aircraft were grounded due to drone interference.

    Who are you asking? Regardless, I think the universal answer would be 'no'.

    This would be a cool way to make a video of your signage portfolio.

    If it's under 300', you can hear it. It sounds like a swarm of bees.

    Wrap the bottom to look like a swarm of bees. That'll get some movement down there and maybe some jiggling, too.



    If you can't wrap it, just cloak it. If you think it, it will become. :noway:

    Okay... now i WANT one. Which ones are good? I would not spend thousands of dollars, but would want something decent. Actually had few situations where it would be handy!
