What types of photo and video work can you do?
A majority of my experience has been providing drone services for construction monitoring, public safety, corporate events, sporting events and real estate. I am available for one time projects as well as weekly and monthly construction site monitoring. Real estate images and commercial construction projects make up a majority of our calls. Aerial images are great for advertising a new residential listing or even to show off an up and coming commercial site. Our most popular service is construction site monitoring. Construction site monitoring will allow you to track inventory, keep an eye on contractor deadlines and to provide progress updates via photo and video to your investors without them having to step foot on the construction site. I can even offer 360 site walk video. I do not currently offer 2D/3D mapping or thermal imaging outside of my public safety flights. If you are a public safety agency and need an emergency thermal/flir flight, reach out to me to see if we are able to assist.

Does it matter where our project or event is?
Yes. Pricing will vary slightly based on your location. Additionally, pricing may vary based on the complexity of getting to the work site and any additional permitting or policies that may be needed to fly your project. Please contact me to dicuss your specific project details. I can travel throughout the state of Arizona and I am available for out of state multi day projects.

Does it matter what day or time you fly?
Sometimes. I can fly 7 days a week, 365 days a year, weather permitting. If there is rain, lighting or heavy winds, we cant fly. If we have bad weather with an potential window of good weather, I can go into standby mode and wait for a clearing in the weather and launch with a moments notice. As far as time of day, lighting is best between about 11am and 2pm for most drone photography, however I can fly anytime of the day or night depending on the needs of the client. I am trained/certified for night flights and my drones are equipped with FAA approved 3nm anti collision aviation lighting.

Why do some drone pilots cost more or less than others?
You may think that all drone pilots are the same. But that is farthest from the truth. Every pilot has their own special set of skills and capabilities. Some have many years of experience, while others might just be starting out. You will likely find lower prices from those who do this as a hobby, or are unlicensed and not flying legally. Some other pilots may have higher pricing, they may be providing additional services or drone equipment that is beyond what is actually needed to get the job done....which will raise the cost of your project. We have the right drones for the job and will not increase the cost of a job by providing equipment we dont need. I offer a 100% satisfaction guarantee! If you dont like the work I provided to you, I will redo it for you at no charge. If you are still unhappy, I will refund your payment for that project with an agreement for the client to not use the content.

Will you travel outside of Phoenix?
Yes. While the West Valley is my home, I often find myself in Scottsdale, Phoenix and all over the Valley. I am available for projects throughout Arizona as well as other states with travel fees.

How far in advance do we need to book drone services? Can you fly tomorrow?
I can sometimes fly same or next day but I do recommend booking as far in advance as possible. If the site we will be flying is in an FAA no fly zone or restricted airspace, I will need to apply for flight authorization with the FAA to fly your project. FAA authorizations can be approved same day or they could take weeks, on average they tend to take a couple of days. If you need same day or next day work done, please reach out to me so we can see if your project is in restricted airspace and discuss your project details.

How quickly can you turnaround our photos?
Most projects I turn around photos in 24-48 hours and videos within 72 hours from the time I leave the job site. If you need a rush on your project, please let me know so we can discuss your needs in more detail.

Can you shoot high definition images and videos?
Yes! I can provide HD 20mp images as well as 5.1k video. We have the ability to shoot ultra slow motion video in 120fps. I typically shoot video in 4k 30fps, but if you need a different format, please let me know. I have multiple drone platforms to use based on project. I have a DJI Mini 3 Pro, a DJI Phantom 4, DJI Avata FPV, and my personal favorite, the new DJI Mavic 3 professional triple lens drone, this drone can shoot 5.1k video and features a state of the art collision avoidance system. I do also have a DJI Matrice 300RTK with thermal capabilities available for public safety projects

What are your rates?
My rates will vary based on your project needs, project location, equipment required, and the content you need us to provide. Please reach out to me to discuss your project and I will get you over a no obligation quote. I am reasonably priced and I guarantee the quality of my work 100%.

If you have any other questions or would like to discuss booking me for your project or event, please do not hesitate to call, text or email me day or night Jay@EliteDronesAZ.com I will respond to your message as quickly as possible, typically within 2-3 hours.
