Operating a drone for commercial purposes is currently illegal in the U.S. However, in other places where it is not illegal, a drone is a valuable asset. It has helped individuals to conduct various tasks successfully. Below are some of how a drone can be used for commercial purposes.

Real Estate

Real estate agents can use drones to capture videos of their properties. When using a drone, all areas of the properties can be captured in the videos, unlike other means where some areas are difficult to capture. This is common in particularly large residential properties. Home services can also benefit from drones. Inspectors can now conduct external inspections using drones, and this is not only time saving, but it also saves them their time and liability.


Drones can also be used to gather amazing videos of a golf course for marketing purposes. In addition to this, they can capture the game for the spectators in ways that were not possible before. In addition to this, drones can be used to calculate differences at each hole in real time. How amazing is this?


Drones have been used in many security measures, and they are now becoming popular. In war zones, for example, they are used to track fugitives and terrorists. Moreover, they can track and apprehend criminals. Educational institutions have also benefited from drones as they are used to monitor the institution and detect any abnormal activities. Once they detect anything strange, they send signals to the administrators and law enforcement agencies.

Weddings and Special Events

When you want to have epic documentation of a special event, using a drone is the perfect way to go about it. This is because they can get aerial shots that no other device can capture. The footage will be cinematic because they can capture for instance a bride walking down the aisle with an aerial view. Other events like concerts and sporting events can make proper use of the drone for better documentation.

Land Surveying

Thanks to drones, site surveying can now be done accurately and faster. With special programming, drones can fly over hundreds of acres while taking pictures and videos. In addition to this, they can locate water and its flow patterns, minerals and other resources. This information is then analyzed and processed quickly because the drones can automatically do that. Gone are those days that this process had to take months because individuals are not programmed to conduct such tasks in a day.
