After more than a year of developing and adapting equipment that would allow us to explore the missing dimension, it is time to announce FG+SG's new service of collecting aerial images, providing a complementary form for viewing architecture against the landscape without the associated costs of an aeroplane or helicopter. This past year we modified several cameras until we found the ideal match for every type of flying, having experimented in parallel various ways to control them remotely. We redesigned our drone and manufactured new parts. We experimented with different motors and propellers until we had a machine made of carbon fiber that is lightweight, robust and autonomous enough to guarantee optimal flying conditions in order to obtain the images that our clients want. The photographs are by Fernando Guerra, who, together with the help of our "pilot", our newest team member, guarantees the desired framing and quality. In allowing project images to be taken from the air, be it of a building, part of a cityscape, or a golf course, this new option complements the traditional photo shoot with a new dimension. Information about this new service can be found at '>http://ultimasreportagens.com'>, the portuguese library for architectural projects. Now with another dimension.
