Ever wonder how drone services are priced?   In this DRONELIFE minute survey, we report what some DRONELIFE followers had to say about how much and how drone services are priced.

There are a lot of very significant drone business surveys, and a lot of very official forecasts for the drone industry.  The DRONELIFE Minute Survey makes no claim to be either – it’s a way for DRONELIFE to share some of the prevailing buzz that comes our way from readers on a variety of subjects, and for us to track changes over time on topics that we feel would be of interest to our readers and the industry.
Last week, we asked a few Twitter followers how the corona virus was affecting their business.  This week, we asked drone service providers how they priced their drone services – a question we get asked a lot.

We asked one question:  “How, and how much, are your commercial drone services priced?”

Answers were anonymous and we asked participants to select one of the following four choices:

  • $100 or under per hour
  • Between $101 and $200 per hour
  • Between $201 and $300 per hour
  • Not priced per hour

Here’s what our community said:

  • 0 % were priced under $100 dollars per hour
  • 23%, or nearly a quarter of those who completed the survey, priced their services at between $100 and $200 dollars per hour.
  • 15% charged between $201 and $300 per hour
  • 62% did not charge by the hour, but provided drone services as part of a larger, more comprehensive quote.

DRONELIFE will do more “Minute Surveys” on our social media channels – next time, we hope to hear from you!
