  • Drones can also inspect up to 1,000 acres of farmland a day – as per Goldman Sachs Research
  • The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates that farms will eventually account for an 80% share of the commercial drone market. -- Source
  • Drone data can show where crops are healthy and where crops are weak so farmers can make adjustments. -- Source
  • Thermal cameras on drones can be used to detect leaks and determine if crops are getting too much or too little water. -- Source
  • The American Farm Bureau Federation estimates that farmers could see a return on investment of agriculture drones of $12 per acre for corn and $2 to $3 per acre for soybeans and wheat. -- Source
  • According to a study, corn, soybean and wheat farmers could save an estimated $1.3 billion annually by using drones to increase crop yields and reduce input costs. -- Source
  • A drone can zoom down to the square inch and even count each individual plant, which would have previously been very difficult and impractical. -- Source
  • Drones that could be used by farmers have a wide range of prices from below $1,000 to over $30,000, depending on whether they come with sensors that measure moisture content and plant light reflectivity. -- Source
  • Sensors in drones can also evaluate drainage and track how mature crops are. -- Source
  • A drone’s software can plan a flight path to maximize coverage of a farm’s cropland as well as fly itself from takeoff to landing. -- Source
  • Crop imaging with a manned aircraft can cost $1,000 per hour, while a drone can be bought for less than $1,000. -- Source
  • Drones can be used to survey a crop weekly or daily to create a time-series animation that shows changes or issues that can be acted on -- Source


  • 90% of Commercial Mapping Still Occurs on Drone Models that Cost $1500 or Less – Drone Deploy Report
  • Companies now rely on drones every day for data collection and analysis. On average, DroneDeploy customers create 5 maps a week. This resulted in 30,000-45,000 automated drone flights every month in 2017. Why such a range? Drone use is affected by seasonal changes in weather. Commercial users are most active in the spring and summer months when the weather is warm, and rain and snow are less common. July stood out as the most popular month for drone mapping.
  • Companies use drone technology to collect real-time data about projects, understand what’s happening on site, and identify potential issues before they become costly. Construction is currently the fastest growing sector—surging 239% in the last year -- DroneDeploy
  • Hours of waiting for crop imagery are over. We can capture real-time data in seconds without an internet connection, and begin making smarter crop management decisions before the drone hits the ground. Justin Metz, Technology Integration Specialist Bowles Farming Company -- DroneDeploy


  • Businesses and civil governments spend $13 billion on drones between now and 2020 – Source: Goldman Sachs Research
  • Between now and 2020, Goldman Sach’s forecasts a $100 billion market opportunity for drones—helped by growing demand from the commercial and civil government sectors. – Source: Goldman Sachs Research


  • Roof Report helps professionals in the roofing, solar, and insurance sectors generate accurate roof measurements with computer vision and machine learning. The number of roof reports generated doubles every month as drone adoption continues to rise. The number of Roof Reports double each month with the use of drones according to -- DroneDeploy
  • A drone can get closer to damaged property and inspect it more thoroughly. It can also gather and relay images, audio, video, and other crucial data. -- Source
  • Faster rebuilding after a devastating storm due to rapid assessment of the damage. Drones can cover larger areas in a shorter span than human claims adjusters. This leads to more accurate processing of claims, which also makes affected policyholders happy. -- Source
  • Reduction in Loss Adjustment Expenses (LAE). These are costs associated with assessing and settling claims. Since drones work faster and can survey the most dangerous properties, the number of claims adjusters needed is reduced. -- Source
  • Improved safety. Being a claims adjuster is one of the most dangerous jobs in America. Because they usually assess damage to unstable homes after dangerous storms, they’re more likely to be hurt in the process. Drones eliminate this problem because they can do a better analysis from various angles. -- Source
  • More unbiased claims processing. Unlike human claims adjusters whose decisions may be influenced by emotional factors, drones can be trusted to be objective. They collect data and forward it for further analysis. -- Source

Drone Industry

  • There were around 1.1 million drones in the United States as of December 31, 2017. During 2019, that number will reach 2 million. Source: FAA

  • In 2016, there were 788,570 drones in the United States, increasing around 40% year-over-year. Globally by 2017 there were more than 3 million. This substantial growth rate is driven by the consumer market and stems from falling equipment prices, improved technology such as built-in cameras, and the relative ease of piloting. – FAA
  • The industry is expected to grow to more than $82.1 billion in annual revenue by 2025.
  • Commercial drones represent just 6% of all drone sales in the US, but make up 60% of the drone industry revenue due to their high price points relative to consumer models. – Economist
  • The fastest growing commercial adopters of aerial data come from the construction, agriculture, and mining industries. – Drone Deploy Report
  • The FAA announced that there were more than 122,000 commercial drone pilots in early 2018. Combined with the 878,000 hobbyists, there were more than 1 million total drone registrations.
  • Since the launch of online registration, more than 110,000 commercial operators had registered their equipment by the end of 2017 – FAA
  • For each week the registration has been available, over 1,000 aircraft have been registered – FAA
  • Top industries for drone job opportunities include Construction, Agriculture, Insurance, Oil/Gas, Police – Source: Goldman Sachs Research
  • “Tremendous opportunities for growth in employment associated with commercial activities of the UAS. ” – FAA
  • Consumer grade dominates the non-commercial, with a market share approaching 98% – FAA

This is a shot where the drone does a 360 rotation around the subject.


This is a shot typically seen in movies.
Where the drone would move like a crane upwards/downwards. 


Flying the drone straight towards the subject 


Circle or oval around the subject while keeping the same altitude 


Starting at the ground tilting upwards revealing the subject 


Tilting the drone camera upwards or downwards 


Tilting the drone camera up while lowering the altitude of the drone 


Flying the drone back away from the subject until it fades into the background 


Left to right or right to left movement of the drone 


Fly over and past the subject 


Fly through a house, park, woods, building, etc… 


Follow using the drones active track. works best for vehicles, boats, people, etc… 


Zooming technique that changes your perspective. Giving a vertigo like effect 


This shot is achieved with only the drone flying straight upwards/downwards. 


Keeping the drone in one place while turning the drones position left or right
we can even move the drone forward/backwards while doing this shot to make it even better.
