ORLANDO Orlando-based Sonus Studios is now offering aerial photography captured by drones. The quadcopter can carry a still or video camera and fly as high as 130 feet, providing a bird’s-eye view of indoor and outdoor events. Owner Renato Mendonca controls the battery-operated drone over a digital frequency, always keeping it within his line of sight. It’s also equipped with GPS as a backup to direct the drone back to its base if the controller malfunctions.

Clients can use the drone as the primary image source or as a complement to traditional video and photography. Pricing starts at $500 for three hours of recording.
