We can usually deliver edited still photos within 24 hours following the time of the shoot.
For most projects, we will deliver edited digital photos to you via OneDrive or Google Drive within 24 hours following the completion of the shoot. If your project requires additional post-processing work including mapping, video editing, or image stitching, delivery time can take several days. You will receive an email that includes a link to your online photo gallery where you can download all of these files to a local device.
It is typically not necessary for you to be on-site for the shoot; however, you are welcome to join us if you feel it will be beneficial. Our pilots are trained professionals and can capture high-quality imagery in just about any setting. Please note that if you do opt to join us on the shoot, scheduling times might be delayed as this will have to be coordinated with multiple parties. We will always ask you to describe your preferences, goals, and objectives in full detail. Most of our clients choose to communicate online or over the phone.
This depends on what you are trying to accomplish and your personal preferences. For marketing photos, many professionals prefer partly cloudy weather because of the abundant sunlight along with just enough clouds in the sky to display texture in the photos.
It depends. Although it is true there are some locations and areas that are either off-limits or have additional height restrictions, we can fly near, or even at, most airports if we can obtain the necessary legal permission. If you are unsure of the viability of a particular location, shoot us an email or give us a call. We're happy to help take a look!
This largely depends on the nature of your project and the size of the property. Our pilots can legally fly at heights of up to 400 feet in most locations. A good rule of thumb is to assume the drone can capture about 20 acres in a single, nadir (camera pointing directly down), shot from 400 feet. If you are not looking for nadir shots, and would instead prefer oblique shots (captured at an angle), the imagery can include a much wider territory as the camera will be pointing out into the horizon.
We are committed to delivering the highest quality imagery possible; therefore, unless otherwise specified by the client, we shoot high resolution photos in RAW (DNG) format and film in either 4k or 5k, MP4 or MOV format. The RAW (DNG) images are converted to JPG when edited.
Safety is our paramount concern at Web-tactics. We will not fly over the heads of people who are not active participants in the production or in inclement weather (precipitation, high winds, etc.) and we use a Visual Observer to provide an additional level of on-site safety. Our pilots are seasoned and responsible operators with experience on an array of equipment and have created safe yet incredible, innovative shots.
The UAS must remain within the Pilot in Command's line of sight at all times, and our height ceiling is 400 feet (122 meters) by law.
Each battery lasts approximately 45 minutes, depending on the payload, temperature, wind speed, and type of aircraft. Swapping out a battery only takes a minute and we always bring multiple batteries to each shoot. If needed, we can also recharge batteries during a shoot.
