Talon Drone Services specializes in High Resolution aerial imagery spanning a variety of different commercial applications. We are located in Colorado Springs, Colorado, and provide service to most of the state. Below is a list of the services we provide. If a service that you are interested is not listed, please let us know of the project you need our help with, we may be able to provide service to you.
We offer services in Commercial/Residential Real Estate aerial Photos and/or video; showcasing commercial buildings or residential homes and/or properties. Upon request we can highlight property boundary lines on aerial images, take ground photos with Canon DSLR cameras. Allow us to spotlight a piece of property, and provide an aerial view of the building or home a buyer rarely sees. We can provide "Aerial Tours" via video, of parcels of land that show the views a potential home buyer will have. Our goal is to make a listing stand out, and help close the deal.
We can perform Inspection Services on a variety of different types of structures. Roof inspections, photos/video used to check for damage after a storm or looking for normal wear and tear or check solar panels installed on roofs for cracks, missing bolts etc.. Inspection Services on tall structures that are dangerous to scale and not very accessible. These can include cellular towers, radio antennae, bridges, and even church steeples. Instead of risking injury by someone scaling these structures, let us fly and capture the photos/video, and inspect the structure in high resolution safely.
We can provide Agricultural Services, such as perimeter fence integrity checks. When a ranch covers many acres, with some areas difficult to get to, a drone can quickly check to see if any of the fencing surrounding that ranch is damaged or missing. We can capture images of livestock to allow for a headcount to be conducted. If it is determined that an animal is missing, we can scan much more ground more quickly than via a side by side or on horseback alone, to locate the missing animal.
Finally, we also offer Aerial Imagery for Special Events like weddings, family reunions, etc.. Capturing those "magic" moments in photos and/or video from a birds eye view. Let us provide you with a different view, and imagine!
With all of our flight services, the customer has the option of either having us give them the raw footage, or we can edit the photos and/or video in post-production for an additional fee.

This applies to any property that is further than 50 miles from our home office in Colorado Springs.
