There are several ways to look around at the area surrounding this featured property.
On a mobile device with a built-in gyroscope (mobile phone, iPad Etc) you can simply move the device around as if you were up there in the drone looking around.
On a touchscreen device without a gyroscope (table, laptop Etc ) you can use your fingers to scroll around and zoom in and out. Spread two fingers apart to zoom in and pinch them together to zoom back out.
On a desktop without a touchscreen you can use your mouse to scroll around and the Shift key to zoom in or the Control key to zoom back out.
To enter Fullscreen mode click on the box of arrows in the top tight corner.
You may have seen some aeria photos that are taken a long way from the featured property, with whole neighborhoods in the shot or even people or cars between the featured property and the drone's point of view. We don't take shots like these because they are basically illegal.
The FAA (Federal Aviation Authority) released the Small UAS Rule (Part 107) at 12:01 a.m. EDT on August 29, 2016 which makes it possible for pilots who pass the test to use sUAS (Small Unmanned Aerial Systems) for commercial purposes. Without a sUAS license the Federal Aviation Administration can enforce fines as high as $250,000 or the possibility of up to three years in jail.
If you are an agent please bear this in mind when hiring someone to take aerial photos as you may be liable too.
Walkthrough Media's pilot has a valid sUAS commercial license.
Several restrictions on the use of such drones have been put in place to prevent accidents and operations in certain airspace at certain times of day.
Here's an overview of what we can't currently do according to the FAA:
1. Fly above 400ft
2. Fly within five miles of an airport, seaplane base or helipad without permission from the control tower.
3. Operate directly above people.
4. Fly 30 minutes after Sunrise or 30 minutes before Sunset.
5. Fly faster than 100MPH
6. Operate outside of a direct line of vision, unless the sUAS passes briefly behind a tree as part of a pre-programmed flight path.
There are also a couple of restrictions we are imposing on ourselves:
1. We will only operate directly over and within the property boundaries of the real estate we are photographing.
2. We will not operate if the only available take off and landing point is within 50 ft of utility lines or public areas, such as sidewalks or roads.
3. We will not fly in winds with gusts over 25 MPH or any in kind of precipitation.
Our Aerial Panorama service gives a 360 degree view of everything above and beyond the property boundaries. We will blur out any private area that may be visible in neighboring properties for privacy purposes.
We will provide documentation outlining these conditions to any neighbors who have a problem with our operations, and a valid sUAS FAA issued pilots license will be presented upon request.
We hope you understand the limitations we are working within, and hope to provide you with the very best service using this exciting new techology.
