Retaining Wall and Walkway

Complete landscaping adjustments were needed at a Men’s Treatment Center. Our client shifted a lot of dirt and built a retaining wall with a new sidewalk that allows church members to easily access all part of the grounds now.


New Housing Complex

A massive development is taking shape in King William County. Our client installed the new roof of this housing complex that will serve this community for 30+ years! The craftsmanship in things most of us take for granted like a roof is amazing.

Our Process

1. The Mission

Our FAA certified Remote Pilot will speak to you about how to capture your project. Using a satellite image of the area, our pilot will work with you on desired angles and locations to film.

This pre-planning process enables our team to provide the correct content for your needs.


2. Flight Planning

The day before the scheduled flight, our pilot will consult any air traffic control that would have control over the airspace of your project. If we are not given permission to fly, the pilot will contact you to take steps to try another day.

Weather is the main obstacle that remote pilots encounter when flying their drone. If we have unfavorable weather conditions, our pilot will work with you to reschedule the filming date.


We deliver on any need to capture your project with a goal of total satisfaction

3. Flight Day

We encourage you to be on-site for the day we are filming. Being on-location will put things into perspective that you wouldn’t otherwise notice when looking at a satellite photo of the property. Any changes to the flight plan are allowed as long as it doesn’t change the approved area of flying.

Want us to take some extra photos or video of the side of your building? No problem, we can do that!


4. Post Flight Editing

Having the ability to edit the media that was captured allows us to provide you a polished product if it is required. The most common post flight service is the editing of your video to make a project highlight reel. This is wonderful for showing off your latest project to future clients.
