Copteriews has had a busy day! We shot houses for a local realtor.
My wife and I drove to the beach this morning at 5:50 A.M.
Started shooting at around 8:00 A.M.
The pupose of this shoot was for the little books you get free for vacation property.
We shot 29 (TWENTY NINE)!! houses today!!
Now granted, a few houses where next to each other, as they where all beach front, but I made 19 different take offs and landings !! WHEW !!
I am actually tired of flying today. (just today though)
We finished up around 3:00 P.M. Burned about a Gallon of Camper fuel
logged about 3 1/4 hours of flight time.
Like I said I am Tired.
Has anyone done more than this in one day?
If so you know how I feel.
oh well, see ya'll
Here is a sample pic:

Copterviews

That's a serious amount of airtime during the course of one day. You have to recharge Tx , Rx and downlink batteries during that time? The most work I've ever done in a day was 10 jobs, but they were from conventional aircraft meaning it was a lot quicker to get about the region.

We'll lets just say I made more today than I do in one month at my "real Job"
Don't really have a clue on cost of the houses. But I would imagine around 1.2 or 1.3 million
Could get about 10 houses before recharging the batt.s
This total job has entailed 49 seperate job sites, and more to come!!
I wish I could do this once a week!
EVERY WEEK
