Why Work with Eagle Drone Imaging?

Professional and Affordable Services


Eagle Drone Imaging is a professional aerial imaging and inspection company approved for commercial operations by the FAA that uses state-of-the-art unmanned aerial systems (UAS) or drones to capture amazing image data, photographs and video for your commercial applications.


Our radio controlled multi-rotor aerial camera systems are precisely flown at low altitudes to enable bird’s eye vantage points for breathing-taking photography and high-resolution video (4K) that is only more recently available and affordable.



Our mission is to provide high-quality, affordable and safe aerial imaging, data collection and inspection services using state-of-the-art UAS aerial technology.




Our cutting-edge UASs,  with integrated imaging hardware and software systems enable reliable, safe and efficient workflow for high quality image acquisition and real-time video monitoring on the ground.  Each of our aircraft is registered with the FAA with an identifying N-number.


We use several models of UAVs depending upon the application. In common with all of them are integrated and reliable systems with advanced sensors including GPS, 3 axis accelerometers, gyros, magnetometers, and barometric pressure sensors with microprocessor stabilization.


Our UAVs fly for between 15 to 25  minutes on each battery charge ( we have several batteries) and can function in moderate winds.



OUR EQUIPMENT:  Camera System


We utilize the DJI Zenmuse X5 3-axis computer stabilized gimbal and camera system, one of  the smallest Micro 4/3 cameras ever made and specifically designed  for aerial imaging.  The revolutionary sensor enables high quality, high sensitivity,  and low noise image recording in an ISO range of 100-25600 and with 12.8 stops of dynamic range.


It  captures ultra-clear 4K video at up to 30 frames per second and  photos at 16 megapixels in Adobe DNG RAW and JPEG.  We have auto-exposure bracketing capability for high dynamic range (HDR) imaging. With interchangeable lenses and filters, we have a wide range of imaging solutions with full wireless remote control of shutter, aperture, ISO, EV and focus.


The computer stabilized gimbal enables rock-solid stable video footage capture that seems almost ethereal.


We have a live high definition video feed on the ground from the on board video image sensors using LightBridge technology that allows us to monitor exactly what the camera is seeing, and make remote changes in the camera settings to optimize image quality.


OUR EQUIPMENT:  Control System Interface


We have a live high definition video feed in our graphic user interface  to monitor exactly what the camera is seeing and to make remote changes in the camera settings to optimize image quality.


The GPS position of the UAS is tracked and displayed on the topographic map of where we are flying.  The heading of the UAS is graphically displayed.  Other live data includes battery levels, flight elevation, and airspeed.


A second screen and controller is all available for regular clients to provide live video camera feed and custom gimbal position and orientation control to get the shots that you need.




Our Chief Pilot and founder is David Altobelli,  a FAA Certified Commercially Rated Helicopter Pilot with over 325 hours as pilot in command of Robinson Helicopters and with aerial photographic and video experience.  He also has numerous hours flying and maintaining sUAS and is a FAA Certified Remote Pilot.


His background training is in the medical, dental and biomedical engineering fields with over 46 worldwide patents with 31 US patents.  His more recent focus had been in the development of an advanced bionic prosthetic arm for upper extremity amputees as a technical contributor and principal clinical investigator at  DEKA Research and Development.


Eagle Drone Imaging looks forward to bringing this technology to benefit the diverse commercial needs of businesses in the New England area. We also have interest in developing advanced systems using sophisticated sensors for image and data collection with advanced rendering and 3D reconstruction of this data.


We are continually looking to expand the scope of our work and build a collaborative network of talented people to develop custom hardware and software solutions for advanced applications and provide post production services.   We are  receptive to working  with other groups interested in advanced imaging processing, video post-production, 360 panoramic photo sphere production and VR dataset, mapping and 3D modeling, and bringing forward new applications. If you have related experience and interest in working with us, please feel free to contact us.




FAA Approved for Commercial Operations


We are FAA approved (FAA Section 333 Exemption: 13741 )  and Part 107 for commercial operations of UAS for aerial imaging and data inspection and assessments of industrial structures, agricultural management and surveys, and  photography and videography for real estate, natural settings, outings, functions and events.


This approval process required significant effort and time, with Eagle Drone Imaging being only one of  few approved companies in the New England area.


With this approval, and the procedures and systems now in place for efficiency and risk management, it allows us to conduct our UAV aerial imaging and data collection commercial services for clients legally and enables our work to be fully insured.  With extensive aviation experience, our pilot in command (PIC) is a FAA rated Commercially Rated Helicopter Pilot and a Remote Pilot familiar with FAA regulations and procedures, allowing us to conduct these commercial operations effectively, safely and by the book.
