New device for marketing properties: quadcopters!

Real estate aerial photography services are now delivered by camera drones (or “quadcopters”, as they are also known). Recent advances in camera, flight and battery technologies mean that those UAVs are now capable of achieving footage at a quality comparable to that achieved by manned aircraft. Combined with the fact that UAVs can be used closer to the ground and nearer to people than manned aircraft, this means that they are becoming an incredibly adaptable tool for filmmakers across a wide variety of genres. Originally, those drones were used to record videos and take pictures of roofs, to make sure that their condition was good, and to detect at a lower cost any difficulty that may appear (leak, severe foam, broken tiles…) without having to send someone to physically climb onto the roof (which is pretty inconvenient when the buildings are two storey mansions or other tall buildings). But drones for aerial photography can also appear as a really inexpensive and convenient way to publicize a mass celebration (such as a marriage, a religious gathering, or a mass demonstration), or a large property such as a mansion or a newly-built building. In particluar, those services can be useful to market real estate properties or for architect firm in London. To publicise a luxurious property, such as, for instance, a large mansion with a garden,it is quite spectacular to use nice aerial shots taken from a light, highly manageable quadcopter. With this original technique, it can be useful to please customers […]

Villa in Surrey
Apartments in London

Villa – Surrey 1 The villa in Surrey is very well hidden from the public road. While the height has kept low, the forms are slightly curved, to make the villa part of the natural surrounding. The canopy and the first floor roof are matching the lines of the neighbouring environment. The timber decking outside is ideal for summer activities, while the big bi-folding doors are bringing the outside landscape into the house.
