Tools & Equipment

The most obvious way to start this business is buying a drone. In South Africa, you don’t need a license to fly a drone as a hobby, but since you’re considering using it for commercial purposes, you must get a license and set up a company.

In addition, you will need a computer and video editing software such as Adobe Premiere Pro, Final Cut Pro or Vegas Pro.
