How To Choose An
There are other services out there that offer aerial photography and
video, some use full size aircraft, some use remote aircraft. The remote photography realm is filled with some professionals and
many hobbyists. Be sure to you're getting a professional. Asking for a
copy of the insurance certificate is a way to further insuring you are
getting a safe professional. Also be sure to see high resolution photo
samples and HD video samples to ensure clear vibration free media. Here
at SkyCamUsa we are fully insured with years of experience, you may also

Most Aerial Photographers / Videographers who use full size
aircraft only are professional and you are getting the best service but full
size aircraft have certain benefits and certain limitations. They need much more altitude and more space to
operate safely. They can disturb the filming environment and the
neighbors. We can operate almost anywhere! If you want to fly up
close to a subject, down a tight street or need to fly in an area impossible
for a full sized helicopter. SkyCamUsa makes
that unique shot possible with our Remote Helicopter Flying

Advantages of Drones For Aerial Video and Photos
Full Sized Manned Airplane Vs.
Remote Helicopter / Drone
What about full size manned aircraft? These are great for high altitude
shots where closeness is not an issue. If you want a low altitude shot or
close up shot of any subject that may be impossible if its under 500
feet. Its is also be against FAA regulations to fly under 500 feet
(depending on the area). Full sized aircraft with out a camera nose
mount also have very limited 360 shooting full panoramic photography. We can also fly full sized
manned helicopter or airplane if your needs require it.
Our drone can land and take off almost anywhere safely and
perform up to 360 panoramic shots if needed. We can fly and land right
at your location with in minutes. Its much more fuel efficient and earth
friendly to use remote aircraft then full size aircraft especially with
the cost of fuel. The photos and videos from the remote helicopter are
far more intimate and closer to the subject than the full sized plane
showing more detail and a very unique point of view. People often ask..
how did they do that shot? There are also places where full sized planes
can not fly due to airspace limitations. We can fly almost anywhere
provided the airspace is clear.
With a full sized aircraft you do not get to see what is being filmed until
after it is complete unless you are on board.. Reviewing on board gets
expensive too since you are in the air! So you land and review, if you
don't have it guess what? Back up you go! With us you get to see it LIVE
as its being filmed via our LCD display ground station, and review it
safely while still on the ground, once we review if we need to go back
up its not a big deal since we can land and take off right on location!
What aircraft requires more fuel to fly.. on that weighs 20 pounds or
Full size aircraft produce thousands of pounds of CO2 and
other green house gasses each time they fly. Our carbon footprint is
literally thousands of times smaller. This gives some bragging rights to
a production to mention how much fuel was saved, especially for green
productions. This is a win / win for everyone.
