Which drones do I fly?!

Apr 7, 2023

Greetings, Syracuse! One question that I get asked frequently is, “What drones do you use?” So, in this blog post, I want to take a moment to introduce you to the drones that I currently use in my business.

At present, I have five drones (gulp), but honestly, only two of them are regularly in use. These two drones are the workhorse of my fleet, the DJI Mavic 3, and the DJI Avata, which I like to have some fun with.

The DJI Mavic 3 is undoubtedly my go-to drone for most of my commercial projects. This powerful flagship camera drone is equipped with a 4/3 CMOS Hasselblad camera that facilitates professional-level imaging. With its 20-megapixel camera sensor and 4K video capability, I can capture stunning aerial photos and videos with exceptional detail and clarity. The 7X optical zoom on the Mavic 3 really helps me create images that look unlike anything I’ve ever seen from photographers in Syracuse.

Here’s one of the Mavic 3 shots I took using the optical 7X zoom.

In addition, the DJI Mavic 3 has a maximum flight time of up to 46 minutes and a range of up to 10 kilometers, which gives me plenty of time and distance to capture the perfect shot. Plus, its advanced obstacle avoidance technology ensures that I can fly safely and confidently even in challenging environments.

But when I’m not working on commercial projects, I like to have some fun with the DJI Avata. This drone is excellent for capturing ultra-wide 4K stabilized video indoors or outdoors, in and around objects. It has what some call a “cinewhoop” design and comes in a palm-sized form factor with all four propellers protected with attached guards. This allows for close-up filming indoors, near people, and through small openings without risking damage or injury to people and property.

One thing that I love about the DJI Avata is its ability to fly in a first-person view (FPV) mode. This means that I can see what the drone sees in real-time, providing a unique and immersive perspective that is perfect for capturing exciting action shots. Its small size and maneuverability make it a fun drone to fly and an excellent tool for creating dynamic and engaging content.

In conclusion, the DJI Mavic 3 and the DJI Avata are the two drones that I use the most in my business. They are both excellent for different purposes, and I feel lucky to have them both in my fleet.
