Invest in your UAV equipment
My Personal Experience
I have started my drone photography business 2 years ago the year 2016 with only a Phantom 4 and I still have not upgraded. It cost me $2,726 with one extra battery and propellers. Since then, I have about 3 more intelligent batteries for longer projects like 3D mapping or time-lapse.
I have paid off my drone within 6 months of part-time work, and to this day I continue to have income into my pocket from one investment. Remember, my drone simple drone task such as photography begins at $250 and my drone video is $400 plus video editing at $240.
Present Day – 2nd March 2019
Skipping to the present day, 2nd of March 2019. I just finished ordering my second drone, The Mavic 2 Zoom. I don’t need this one to continue to make money. I wanted the Mavic 2 for the zoom feature and dolly shots for my winery tour business. My current Phantom 4 can’t zoom in and see my guests faces. I wanted to be unique and provide my guests with some drone images and footage, plus I can use it as a unique point to sell on my social media accounts.
From my experience, I don’t have a lot of money to fork out $6k – $10k drone to start a small drone business.
