For exterior/outdoor scan requests, conditions and limitations apply:
- direct sunlight interferes with 3D sensors, so shade, overcast skies, dawn and dusk are ideal times for outdoor capture
- smooth ground surface like deck and patio cannot be wet, moisture confuses the 3D sensors
- if outdoor alignment cannot be done, we can provide stand-alone 360 views instead which are incorporated into the virtual tour. $25/360 view, $100 for 5 ($20/view after 5 360 views)

Below are just a few of the regulations enforced by Transport Canada.
Our pilots must maintain continuous unaided visual contact with the UAV sufficient to be able to maintain operational control of the UAV, know its location and be able to scan the airspace in which it is operating to decisively see and avoid other air traffic or objects.
The safety perimeter is a buffer area of at least 100ft around the UAV required by Transport Canada, away from any traffic or persons not directly associated with the operation. We are only permitted to stop traffic from entering the safety perimeter temporarily, to give us time to land our UAV (and let traffic through). This is only possible in low traffic areas, unless street occupancy permits are obtained and within budget.
If/when flying in controlled airspace, we must firstly submit flight plans to the appropriate airport and get approval to operate.
Safety and Privacy
Explicit permission must be granted by owners to fly over any private property.
All neighboring properties within the safety perimeter must be notified for safety and privacy reasons before any flights.
All properties that might be captured (within reason) outside the safety perimeter must be notified for privacy reasons.
