Real Estate FAQ's

To legally fly a drone in Canada (that has a take off weight of 250g or more) ‘anywhere’ in the open air, the drone operator MUST have the following documentation in place (as an absolute minimum)…

  • A valid Pilot Certificate for RPAS operations (appropriate for the airspace and location)
  • A certificate of RPAS Registration (with the number clearly visible on the drone)
  • Established procedures for pre-flight, take-off, launch, approach, landing and recovery
  • Emergency procedures in place, with respect to…
    • (i) a control station failure
    • (ii) an equipment failure
    • (iii) a failure of the remotely piloted aircraft
    • (iv) a loss of the command and control (C2) link
    • (v) a fly-away
    • (vi) a flight termination
  • A detailed Site Survey
  • A copy of the RPAS Operation Manual
  • A maintenance record for the RPAS

If a drone operator does not have ALL of these documents/procedures in place, then they are NOT operating legally, or in accordance with the Canadian Aviation Regulations for ‘Remotely Piloted Aircraft Systems’.

Additional rules for ALL drones (of any size and weight) can be found here…

In order to remain cost effective, our copyright provides the Realtor with the limited right to reproduce, publicly display, and distribute the Realtor media only for promotional or advertising purposes directly related to the sale of the Property. Media used for any purpose not directly related to the sale of the Property must be with the express permission of Skygate Videography Inc.

How long a drone can fly for depends on the type of drone and its payload weight, but we can typically expect a flight time of 20 to 30 minutes. We carry sufficient spare batteries to conduct several flights in one day and always have mobile charging systems for each drone on location.

In order to collect data, or legally take aerial photographs and aerial drone videos from remotely piloted aircraft (even for recreational purposes), the operator must have passed an examination and hold an ‘RPAS Pilot Certificate for Basic Operators as a minimum (Note: your drone must also be registered with Transport Canada).

This demonstrates of a level of competency and safe practices, and include the requirements for you to make detailed flight plans, risk assessments, emergency procedures and maintenance logs etc.. Failure to comply with Transport Canada CARS section IX regulations can result in fines up to $25,000 and/or jail time.

Note: Some (but not all) of the Transport Canada drone regulations are not applicable to very small drones (lighter than 250g). However, you must still operate them safely and responsibly.

The biggest limiting factor to affect drone operations is wind speed, it becomes difficult (and more time consuming) to produce good results with wind speeds gusting more than 35kph (note also that at 100ft the wind is typically around double than on the ground!). We can operate in light rain and snow to a degree (providing we have good visibility), as we have a fully waterproof and submersible drone in our fleet, capable of taking off and landing on water. We can operate the Inspire 2 drones below freezing, at air temperatures down to -10C (but with limited range and flight times). In short, the nicer the weather, the better the results.

Yes, all our drones have video downlink (and our property walkthrough video cameras) and have live streaming capability and can be made available for live broadcasting platforms, such as Facebook Live and YouTube Live.

Note: Some of our drone equipment have fully encrypted video downlinks, in case sensitive information is required to be filmed.

No, The URL link provided is for viewing only. However, you will be given the opportunity to review the video before publishing, and we can always edit it directly for you at any time.

To capture video of dark spaces, we have a few options to ensure we present areas in the best light. Apart from choosing a bright and sunny day for the shoot, we typically film using a special Low Light Camera and lens. We can set up remote LED lighting to provide subtle and reflected light to dark areas of a room, or we can take still panoramic images with a flash and ‘animate’ them into the walkthrough presentation.

Ideally, for a drone to take off and land safely we like to cordon off at least 20ft of unobstructed, flat ground for both our primary and secondary landing sites. Caution tape, signage and ground crew will also be used if there is potential for people not involved in the operation to enter the areas.

Yes, we always try to shoot both the aerial and the walkthrough video in one visit. However, since drone flights are limited to certain weather conditions, we may choose to get the interior walkthrough video completed first, returning later for the drone flight. This also allows us to deliver an initial video to you quickly, and provide the full multimedia for upload later.

Note: There is no additional charge for making more than one visit to a property for a single job order.
