Our service is free to use if you are looking to hire a pilot. If you are a drone pilot, we charge a 10% commission fee on every job that is awarded to you. The fee is automatically subtracted from payments made to you.
Payment is made through our platform. Once the pilot you hire has completed your job, they will mark it complete and an invoice is sent to you. You'll have two days to review the work before payment is automatically made using the debit/credit card on file.
Security is one of our biggest considerations: all communications with our servers are secured under HTTPS protocol and certified by a high-level SSL certificate. We do not store any payment information on our servers and all processed payments are stored by our payment provider (Stripe.com).
We manually review every pilot before approving their profile to ensure they have obtained the current drone license(s) required to legally operate a drone for commercial purposes.
Some services provided by our pilots require additional license, such as land surveying. We do not verify if our pilots have obtained these licenses. When hiring a pilot, ensure they have the proper license(s) if applicable for the service you are requesting.
Once the job is completed, the client will have two days to review the footage before payment is made. The money (minus our 10% commission fee) will arrive in your bank account 2 business days later.
