Professional Drone Services

By ViolaFrank

Our professional drone services include the use of a cinematic camera up to 6K in resolution. Although our professional drone is capable of speeds up to 94km/h although we prefer slower and more considered video captures. We are a professional drone pilot, and image and colour experts, based in Melbourne, Australia. Below we list some of the professional drone services we provide. Always feels free to contact us here with any request.


We can conduct site inspections for risk assessment of any site at a more cost effective outcome than sending personal into the location. Our drone services can visually inspect the condition of rooflines for maintenance and report faults.


The use of drones in the Real Estate sector is growing in popularity. From aerial viewpoints of properties and houses for sale to surrounding attractions. We can also fly indoors in larger commercial real estate buildings.


Drones are effective to assess the success of irrigation and or environmental sustainability on farms, land holdings, golf courses, parks, property and the like. We can rapidly determine areas of concern requiring further attention.


Teaming with building inspections and construction management we can quickly report on any infrastructure condition from existing structures and those during the timeline of construction phases.

Climate Change

Climate change, risk and environmental sustainability are fast becoming a major commercial consideration for any industry required to report to their investors. Drone footage can quickly provide a viewpoint of climate and sustainable development goals.
