    I mostly photograph for real estate agents and the press, but has recently been asked if I can film a roof on a church before a final inspection.

    Have never done this before, and wondering if there is something I should consider, think of..

    What I think of is to pull down the gain, so it is not as quick in acceleration. ATTI? But perhaps become dangerous if you fly close and there comes a gust of wind?

    Will work my way from side to side up to the ridge and then vertically up and down the church tower.
    It should be the easiest flight without risking to crash into the church?

    The best aircraft to suit you in this case is matrice100 with guidance system. But since we use Inspire, I think you should monitor the wind direction and speed (calm day is ideal), decrease gain, modify exponents to make control smoother and maintain all time visual contact (if possible, take a friend with you to control camera using slave controller). As for flight mode, I would fly in p-gps for precise hovering. Do not forget to calibrate compass and check IMU.

    I would also recommend filming in 4K to maximize detail. That way you should be able to extract stills if needed.
