Photogrammetry (We have Pix4Dcapture in the house)
Propeller points too.
Have shot movies, commercials, construction, real estate, weddings, and boats. I have tried numerous out of the box suggestions too will to try any good idea.
I have access to many drones but right now the Phantom 4 Pro is the best workhorse for most situations and gives excellent results.
I have movie videography experience, we also have Pix4D software so we can do all sorts of Photogrammetry and 3D modeling in house.
