Here is a report on our company from Mandy Murphy Fox 2 News.
ST. LOUIS (KTVI) – The FAA last week decided to allow commercial use of drones under strict guidelines. The decision has been in the works since 2005 and still needs final approval. Current rules for drones are to fly for recreation. If commercial you need a pilot’s license. The new FAA rules allow for drones under 55 pounds, you must fly below 500 feet, further than 5 miles from an airport and not directly overhead of people. You must maintain constant visual line of site with the drone.
Haller Concepts of South County is already using drones from commercial photography and video. Safety is the most important aspect for Haller. They always use a two-man crew. One person operates the drone and keeps constant line of sight while the other watches the shot and directs the operator. Haller and many others like them will get their certificate of authorization.
Technology is far outpacing government rules. Law enforcement across the country are interested in using drones. St. Louis Police have asked for permission from the FAA. Groups like drone free St. Louis are opposed to police drones. They want strict privacy rules from the government.
Right now, the new ruling does not allow for companies like Amazon to begin delivering packages using a GPS drone. Line of sight is still required. It may take a year or two for the new FAA rules to be fully implemented.

Of course we shoot outside, but we can also shoot your plant tour inside. We shot a number of video and photography plant tours with our drone system. Here is a raw clip from the recent shoot showing our two man crew at work.The VLOS visual line of sight is where we excel in safety with our two man crew. The pilot keeps his eye on the drone at all times during the flight, while the navigator views the imagery and directs the shot.

Making a feature film, commercial, music video or other type of production? If so then you already know the benefits of an aerial perspective for your production. We can fly where full size aircraft cannot! Such as flying through narrow areas such as city streets or natural obstructions.
Digital photographs are great for realtors, resorts, commercial & residential property investors, home owners, golf courses, casinos, private investigators, accident investigators, insurance adjusters and more.
Show your customers a bird’s eye view taken from any height where they live, work or play. Real estate sales are increased by providing powerful images of surrounding terrain. Enhance your business presentations and advertising with unique, high-resolution images.
Replacement as platform for full scale aircraft
Sometimes smaller is cheaper and safer. Also low altitude shots do not require us to zoom in through haze in the atmosphere producing clearer shots.
Event or news live video transmissions.
Got News? We have the ability to downlink a video signal to a ground monitor for a live view of what the camera is seeing. This allows the pilot/camera operator to use the pan/tilt controls to properly compose the shot.
Who’s fault was it anyway? See what has happened or what is still occurring.
