Historic Hyde Park Property – Video Virtual Tour

In this video DroneVU Studios created a video virtual tour of a commercial property located in Historic Hyde Park in Tampa Florida. In this video we used aerial video and and the latest DSLR video and photography equipment to showcase this property for a commercial customer.

At DroneVU Studios we are busy working on our next project using the latest equipment, hardware, software, drones, and techniques to produce high quality residential and real estate videos. Additionally we also have some upcoming large events where they need aerial and traditional video coverage, so stay tuned as we bring you amazing footage from the Tampa Bay area and beyond.

Benefits Of Drones

Many people may be surprised at some of the ways drones are being used to provide benefits. We thought we would provide a short summary of just a few ways they are making a positive difference.

1. Farmers – aerial photography and videography created using drones can help farmers improve output, conserve resources, and avoid excess.

2. Infrastructure – thanks to drones buildings, roofs,  and bridges can be safely inspected for a fraction of the cost or danger that used to come with using humans to climb dangerous scaffolding or ladders to do the same thing.

3. Natural Disasters – in the event of a natural disaster drones and aerial video can be used to survey the damage and search for missing people. They can also be used to identify areas that need the most attention without endangering emergency personnel.

Canadian Drone Regulations

As we here at DroneVU Studios look forward to the FAA’s formal unveiling of drone regulations, Canada has revealed there’s in the form of a formal guidance for Canadian drone operators.

Transport Canada’s guidelines include not operating drones within 8km of airports, no higher than 90 meters, and not over heavily populated areas. In addition, Transport Canada recommends that the drone only be flown line of site and that a Flight Operations Certificate be obtained if the drone is used for commercial use or weighs more than 35kg.
Here at DroneVU studios, we place safety first in everything we do and we thing the rules are very reasonable. One of the reasons why we only specialize in real estate is because other potential drone uses typically involve greater risk to people on the ground such as sporting events, weddings, highways, busy neighborhoods, etc.

Aerial Drones Take Real-Estate Marketing To New Heights

Thanks to remote controlled drones, videos and photographs are now helping sell homes using technology that previously was prohibitively expensive.

As real estate agents know, buyers are very visual and drone aerial technology provides a serious competitive advantage over standard listings that stick to the typical interior and ground level shots.

Home sellers are becoming more and more receptive to using drone technology to help sell their homes; knowing all too well how competitive the home buyer’s market can be.

At a recent Gigaom Structure Connect conference, 3DRobotics CEO and co-founder Chris Anderson discussed some of the future capabilities that drones could bring to any big data discussion including creating 3-D renderings of buildings or mapping a park.

A possible partnership with Autodesk could enable 3DRobotics to create 3-D models almost real time that could be rapidly incorporated into the available data about a particular project.

As new technologies and drone capabilities come to the market, DroneVU Studios stays abreast of all of the latest news and products; to ensure we continue to innovate and revolutionize the real estate aerial photography industry.

FAA Approves Limited Commerical Drone Use


The FAA announced on September 25, 2014 that it had approved certain use of drones which is a very important first step towards removing some of the unknowns which currently exist when dealing with drone regulation.

At DroneVU Studios we continuously monitor these events as they unfold to ensure that we can continue to comply with all state and federal regulations while providing our customers with the aerial videos and pictures that will set them apart.
