The Best GoPro Drone to Consider for all Your Aerial Photography in Dubai

June 12th, 2019|

If you’re intent on capturing some jaw-dropping aerial footage, you’ll need a GoPro. Why? Well, quite simply, there’s no better product on the market for capturing aerial photographs and footage that don’t just piqué attention but demand it. Lightweight and easily fixed to drones of all descriptions, GoPro’s allow users to view the world in a wholly new light. In short, they have revolutionised the world of aerial videography and photography. If you want to capture aerial photography in Dubai or videos that really make viewers sit up and take notice, you need to make sure that you choose a GoPro drone geared for your purposes. Choose the wrong device and you could find yourself heading back to the drawing board – and out of pocket! Why Is Choosing a GoPro for Your Drone a Carefully Considered Decision? Unsure why you must invest so much time into choosing the right GoPro for your drone? Well, there are a handful of pertinent reasons why you shouldn’t take the decision to buy a GoPro for all your aerial photography and videography lightly. Durability No matter if you’re a seasoned pilot or have recently discovered the wonders of drone photography, mid-flight bumps or that dreaded crash is only one false step away. With a GoPro mounted on your drone, there's always the concern that if you crash, your camera won’t survive the impact. You want your GoPro to withstand as much damage as possible. Buying a model that’s likely to falter after the smallest of bumps is hardly ideal. Make sure that you select a GoPro and drone with a solid construction. Place durability atop your list of priorities. This way you can safeguard yourself against any bumps or crashes. Replacement Parts Another essential consideration is whether your drone and GoPro have accessible replacement parts. With bumps and the odd crash being commonplace – especially for inexperienced pilots – you need to make sure that you can source new parts if you need to. There are few things that drone pilots will find more frustrating than being grounded because of an accident, unable to take flight and capture glorious drone photography in beautiful areas like where we are in Dubai, because they cannot source the right replacement part. It’s also a good idea to check that any GoPro you buy can withstand bumps and crashes. If not, you could find yourself heading back to a retailer and spending Dirhams you don’t want to. Quality and Craftsmanship As the adage says, you get what you pay for. Choosing the cheapest drone and GoPro you can find is all fine and well, but sometimes spending a bit more will get you a GoPro and drone that’s less likely to end up costing you more than the investment’s worth in the long-run. So, if you have a flexible budget, it may be worth investing in a slightly more expensive GoPro. Sure all models are robust, but there’s no harm in pushing the boat out and spending [...]

Five Reasons Why You Keep Crashing Your Drone

May 29th, 2019|

Crashing a drone is inevitable. Novice pilots have much to learn before they’re able to confidently take flight and marvel at the exquisite manoeuvres they’re able to pull off. However, before you show off your aerial skills, you’ll need to get the basics down cold. It’s also worth remembering that even seasoned drone pilots may just encounter those slow-motion moments, watching helplessly as their drone hits falls to the ground. Now, experienced drone services in Dubai – like those offered by Sky Vision – understand how to retain optimal control of drones in flight, avoid collisions, and touch down for a safe and soft landing. However, many hobbyists grapple with the controls and face a steep learning curl before confidently taking to the air. Like anything else, the more you know, the better you are. So, with that in mind, and in the spirit of sharing our knowledge with pilots determined to take to the sky confidently, here are five reasons why you keep crashing your drones. Be sure to read them all, you may just discover the reason why you’ve suffered so many broken propellers and frustrating repair expenses! Keeping Your Eyes Fixed on the Control Screen Control screens are awesome – a feat of technological innovation to rival any in the digital age. However, there are occasions when they can hinder a successful flight. Now, as much as we love the displays, immersing pilots in what can only be described as a feeling close to playing console video games as a youngster, keeping your eyes fixed on a control neglects one fundamental aspect of a flight, namely keeping your eyes on the drone itself. This can be circumvented by using an FPV racing drone with Fat Shark goggles, but most novice pilots don’t tend to use such equipment, concentrating on learning how to control their drone’s mid-flight. The purpose of a screen is to provide pilots with information on the surrounding environment, but surely our eyes are better, right? Keeping an eye on your drone means that pilots can control their surroundings better, adjusting flight paths – before it’s too late! Not Using Automatic Flight Mode Carefully Automatic flight modes should be used astutely. Whereas using auto launching and landing shouldn’t be discouraged, especially for pilots with limited experience, there’s one fact that pilots ignore at their own peril – auto flight modes means that they are not flying their drones. Auto flight modes do provide pilots with vital data or the quality of the photos or videos captured – something that drone companies in will use to improve the quality of their footage – but relying on auto flight modes too much can diminish your continuing aptitude as a pilot. Moreover, before selecting auto flight mode, it’s important that your launch site and general is free of hazards. Buildings, natural structures, even tree branches are enemies of propellers. Set auto flight mode and you won’t be able to navigate away from hazards manually. Insufficient GPS Connection Drones [...]

Will Using a Drone Photography Company Give Your Marketing a Shot of Adrenaline?

May 6th, 2019|

How can I attract more customers? It’s a question that every business asks. From Emaar Properties to Walmart – and especially if you’re a small business looking to increase revenue – understanding how to reach, communicate with and grow your business is the key to achieving short and long-term commercial strategies. Oftentimes, teams of marketing professionals with decades of combined marketing experience and an adroit understanding of their business, sector and, by extension, the modern commercial landscape sit in boardrooms for hours on end debating how they can maximise sales and growth public perception of their product or service. Where should we focus our marketing activities? What do we want our marketing to say about our brand? How do we reach our target demographic and provide them reasons to put their hands in their pockets? Questions such as these often leave marketing professionals and business owners working to the small hours of the morning. New and emerging technologies can play a prominent role in spreading the word and helping your business attract more customers. However, beyond employing influencer marketing and interactive chatbots, drone companies are expanding their sphere of influencer throughout the UAE and across the globe and are now considered to be one of the most exciting and innovative ways to give your marketing campaign a shot or adrenaline. Effective Advertising is Paramount Let’s be honest, who doesn’t notice a drone hovering in the sky? Whilst not as commonplace as signage – yet – drones can be used to directly advertise products and services. Consumers immediately notice the effort a business has gone to just to appeal to consumers. Elevating this a step further is a drone photography company in the UAE, like Sky Vision. Consider the unique photographic perspective and seemingly endless creative possibilities drone photographic marketing offers is. As striking a ground-based photography may be, it’s not a patch on the exquisite angles and immersive experience that drone photography can create. Get consumers excited by your product and they will buy. This – and value – are primary motivators to getting people to put their hands in their pockets. A drone photography company, for example, can deliver that new perspective across a host of marketing material. Showing consumers what they have never seen will pique their interest – not all you need to do is elevate your product or service’s selling points. Still unsure whether drone companies offer a service capable of selling your product or service? Keep reading. Here’s three solid reasons why a drone company, like Sky Vision can help you to market your business.     Aerial Photography and Videography Offers A Different Perspective In 2018, buyers are more difficult than ever to convince. Over saturation of marketing campaigns, engulfing online and offline campaigns has helped create a cynical public. You need to make sure that your business stands out. This doesn’t necessarily mean hooking customers with promotions and special offers. It means offering them something of value your competitors cannot. When executed well, [...]

UAV Photogrammetry Software Explained

April 2nd, 2019|

You only need to view a noted social media influencer’s Instagram account, delve into the considered commercial marketing campaigns designed by businesses that want to make a true impact on their clients or watch television or a film and you’ll spot the influence that drone photography and videography has on the content that we absorb every single day. Drone photography and videography is soaring to heights that we’ve never seen before. Yet, despite the prevalence of attention-grabbing images and immersive videos, many people still associate drone photography with the select number of hobbyists devoted to taking flight. In 2019, this assumption can no longer be taken as gospel. Sky Vision drone photography in Dubai has consistently championed the sublime benefits of drone photography and videography for a multitude of sectors across the UAE and beyond – whilst being at the cutting-edge of all modern drone innovation. Photogrammetry is one such innovation. For anyone that’s unaware of why photogrammetry is, here’s a look at the science and why it’s intrinsic to the sustained value of drone video and photography. What Is Photogrammetry? In simple terms, photogrammetry is the process of using images to take measurements. However, there’s much more to it than that. Depending on the intended applicational objective, photogrammetry can offer a meticulously detailed insight into specific images. Believe it or not, computational photogrammetry has been around since the 1980’s though it’s only been in the last few decades that the technological capabilities have truly been accessed. The result? Access to digital data that drives sector-specific innovation. We can now record and monitor our environments in greater detail than what was possible before. How does this manifest? Well, vast and meticulously captured 2D photographs can be fed through software to create 3D digital models, topographic renderings or simulations of weather patterns. So advanced is the technology that most photogrammetry operations can be completed automatically. The Common Applications of Aerial Photogrammetry Drone shooting services in Dubai have long utilised aerial photogrammetry to map out and capture a broad range of environments. Such are the capabilities of the technology, there is a wealth of sectors that now wholly rely on aerial photogrammetry applications to complete vital aspects of a given role. The most common sector-specific applications of aerial photogrammetry are as follows: Construction Across the UAE – and throughout the world, construction is a phased process. This level of organisation is paramount to making sure that every new building is erected within a clear set of designated parameters safety and with optimal attention to detail. Drone mapping allows contractors to analyse the progress of the build, stockpile raw materials and even generate 3d models of sites. Construction companies that have employed drone shooting services in Dubai, such as those offered by Sky Vision have reported greater efficiency and enhanced ROI’s. Land Surveying A necessary aspect of mapping the boundaries, undulations and nature of a parcel of land, topographical land surveying is essential to gain an in-depth understanding of the environment to ensure [...]

Drones Play a Key Role in Dubai’s Smart City Security Vision

March 12th, 2019|

The growing digitization and overall progressive nature across the UAE and the Middle East have led to an increased demand for cutting-edge security solutions. This has been no more evident than over the last decade, a period that has experienced exponential growth in technological innovation. Indeed, there is no area of life, not just in Dubai and the UAE but, throughout the globe, that hasn’t been touched by the relentless march of technology. You only need to consider how globally connected we all are – and how much technology has become intrinsic to all our lives. Consider this: the mighty search engine, Google was founded in 1998. Facebook, arguably the most influential social media platform, was founded in 2004. We now have the world at our fingertips – and Google and Facebook are just the most mainstream examples of technological innovation and its impact on our lives. There isn’t a single commercial sector today that can’t reap the benefits of technological innovation – and the security sector is no different. When you consider the determination to adopt the Internet of Things (IoT) (an interconnected online network of computing devices embedded in everyday objects, allowing for the sending and receiving of data) and, of course, artificial intelligence, the future is bright – and we haven’t even begun to discuss how drone companies in Dubai, working with the relevant authorities, can bolster the safety of citizens. The Intersec Trade Fair The world’s leading security, safety, and fire protection fair, Intersec is where business, technology, and innovations come together. The influence the Intersec trade has on commercial ingenuity and technological commercial forecasting across the Middle East, Africa, and the Indian subcontinent cannot be overstated. Need evidence? The 21st Intersec fair, held in 2019, hosted a record-breaking 34,800 visitors from 135 countries were attracted by the 1200 exhibitors showcasing their products and services. Inaugurated by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum From information security to perimeter and physical security products, including those showcases by leading drone companies in UAE, the Intersec trade is viewed as an event that highlights the pinnacle of Dubai’s smart city security vision. The Backbone of Dubai’s Smart City Vision Trade show director, Andreas Rex, commented that the security sector has grown to become the backbone of Dubai’s Smart City Vision. Dubai’s ambition of being the best city to live in the world, now and in the future, is clear – and the commitment to adopt smart city technologies and security is playing an increasingly important role in Dubai’s ethos. He continued by stating that both households in Dubai and commercial enterprises are continually open to adopting smart living technologies to not only keep citizens safe but save on costs and amplify overall efficiency. In addition to tightening restrictions on drone piloting, especially in Dubai aerospace, drones are increasingly being deployed to safeguard citizens. Drones can be piloted to complete aerial mapping of an area and deliver urgent medical equipment to those in need of medical attention. Drone companies in [...]

The Growing Use of Drones at Events: The New Event Trend to Watch

February 12th, 2019|

If you think about it, not too long ago personal and commercial UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) strictly resided in the realms of science fiction. However, with visionary creativity and technological acumen, drone technology has quickly become part of all our lives. Nikola Tesla, the renowned Serbian-American inventor, engineer and futurist, best-known for his contributions to the design of modern alternating current (AC) electrical supply system, described his vision of a fleet of unmanned aerial combat vehicles in 1915. It would be the turn of the century before the military-industrial complex developed and used drone technology. Today, drone technology is revolutionizing a wealth of varying sectors. Military drone application has steadfastly endured, yet with this, drones have soared into the global consciousness. From the ardent hobbyist who loves nothing more than capturing aerial photography in Dubai to the deployment of drones to assist with agriculture and security, look around you and you’re likely to come across a drone or two hovering majestically in the sky. Businesses of all descriptions have become fascinated with the possibilities that drones offer. One of the most-engaged reasons for drone operation is the potential to capture stunning panoramic cityscapes or desert landscapes in vivid, HD detail. Yet, this is not the sole reason commercial drone operation is soaring, not just in the UAE but across the world. Event organizers are beginning to understand the unique proposition drones offer. The growing use of trends at events is a burgeoning application, and the new event trend to watch. Interesting in learning how a drone service in Dubai can be used at an event? Keep reading below. Amazing Aerial Photography We’ve all seen pictures of events. Some may seem generic, merely piquing our attention, others can be quite immersive, really giving you an impression of being there. What event photography doesn’t traditionally offer is a different perspective. This is where drone photography can be of great use. Aerial photography has that unique perspective, immediately drawing attention. Perfect for marketing events beforehand, or sharing the success on social media, aerial photography can generate excitement, whilst showcasing that your business doesn’t just care about sharing content, it cares about creating an immersive perspective of an event. Live Streaming As the digital age continues is boundless journey to optimal user-experience, more and more innovative ways of reaching audiences are created. A sure-fire way to make everyone feel involved in an event is by employing the services of a learned drone service in Dubai to live stream the event.
