Drones: Did You Know?

Some Background
Drones are unmanned aircraft that are remotely controlled. Drones may be equipped with cameras or other sensors and measuring equipment. They were originally developed for military use, but are now also used for civilian purposes in many different areas such as search and rescue, architecture and construction, agriculture, real estate, photography, and of course, recreation.

Drones flown for commercial use MUST be flown under the Federal Aviation Administration’s (“FAA”) Small UAS Rule (Part 107). This requires the drone operator to get a Remote Pilot Certificate from the FAA, to register their aircraft with the FAA, and to follow all part 107 rules.
Photographs/video obtained from drones NOT flown under the FAA Small UAS Rule may NOT be used for any commercial purpose.

Search and Rescue
Civil authorities use drones to search for survivors after natural disasters.

Architecture and Construction
Architects use drones to see how a proposed building will fit visually into the surrounding environment from all different angles, and to even get a look of the view out of a particular building window, all before the building is even built. Once construction begins, architects use drones to monitor the progress of the construction.
Drones are used to conduct inspections of places that are difficult or dangerous for people to access, to monitor safety issues at a jobsite, or to even monitor jobsite traffic flow efficiency to see if construction materials are stored in optimal locations.

Farmers are increasingly using drones to help them monitor the condition of their crops. From the sky, they are able to spot areas that are having problems and can make better decisions in a timely manner that will help them to maximize their harvests while minimizing the use of costly resources such as water, fertilizer, pesticides, etc.

Real Estate
Realtors use videos and photographs taken by drones to better show their clients their properties and the surrounding neighborhood.

Photographers and videographers use drones to capture shots and footage that were not previously possible, even with helicopters. (Can you imagine a wedding ceremony with a helicopter hovering close by?)

Drone FAQ
Drones are quite sophisticated flying machines. They operate by using a series of precisely positioned propellers and battery powered motors which lift and maneuver the vehicle in the air. Drones are most often equipped with a gimbal mounted camera that can take both photographs and video. The gimbal stabilizes the camera and allows it to be pointed in various directions. The drone is controlled by a pilot using a remote control device to control both the flight and the camera. It takes experience to skillfully maneuver a drone and its camera. Here at Drone-Vision, all of our pilots have the experience to get you the best shots possible.
Drone video provides you with views of your subject that you simply cannot get by other means. And now, this type of video is more affordable than ever before! Drone-Vision can help your video production stand out from the crowd. Skillfully incorporating drone footage into your video production will add a whole new dimension to it.
Drones carry a remote controlled, gimbal (a stabilization device) mounted camera. At Drone-Vision, we constantly monitor the video while we are shooting it. This allows us to discover new angles and novel views of your subject, to provide you with the best shots for your needs.
YouTube! YouTube is currently the best place to start. Make sure to do search engine optimization (SEO) for your video, as this will help to drive viewers to it. Also, post your video on your website and on your social media accounts. We can help you with effectively using your drone video for advertising!
Of course, drone video can provide stunning outside views of your property and its surroundings, but did you know that drones can also be flown INSIDE of a house to produce a video which takes your viewer on an intimate, guided tour of the inside of the house? Drone-Vision can help you to show off all the beauty of your property.
Make sure that your drone professional is certified by the FAA. FAA certification is now required for commercial drone pilots. Without this certification, any video taken may not be legally used for any commercial purpose. FAA certification ensures that the drone pilot has reached a certain level of achievement in knowledge of flying drones from a safety and maintenance standpoint. At Drone-Vision, all of our pilots are FAA certified.
First, follow the FAA guidelines, which include pre-flight maintenance and testing. Stay away from airports and other aircraft, fly below 400 feet in altitude, fly under 100 miles per hour, fly only in good weather conditions, fly only during daylight hours, and maintain a constant line of sight with the drone. Always use common sense when flying your drone. Ask yourself: What would happen if my drone fell out of the sky? This means that you should not fly over crowds of people, streets, or moving traffic. As you become more experienced in flying drones, you will learn other safety aspects regarding the drones you use. Here at Drone-Vision, safety is our number one priority.
It all depends on the project and what your needs are. Give us a call, and we can give you a price quote.


Walter Miyanari


I have been living in Hawaii now for 27 years. Placing my hopes for the future in this land, I moved here from Japan when I was 34 years old. I have been struggling every day to overcome my language handicap. Throughout these years, I have come to realize the importance of visual communication along with verbal communication. I worked in the photography section of a major Japanese newspaper, and there also I could see the importance of pictures to news reporting. Once, I was asked to do drone videoing at the wedding of my niece in Japan. It was the first time that I had flown a drone in Japan. The videoing did not go as I expected, and the results did not come close to that grand image that I had in my mind. I painfully realized how difficult drone videography was.
Based on that experience, I am now developing an outdoor drone videography business that focuses on weddings in Hawaii.
My hobbies are surfing and all marine sports. On weekdays, I also run my own coffee shop. These are keeping me quite busy every day.
