I use my drone for real estate photography, mainly in the country-side though where there are less restrictions.

I've currently got a job request in a fairly busy inner city are, and I'm just wondering if there are any standard best practices when doing real estate shoots in built up areas?

For example, I was thinking of using cones to mark out a 4 metre x 4 metre area, and doing the ascent within this area, take the photos, and then descend, with a friend as a spotter to tell anyone around not to stand in that area under the drone. I'm wondering if this is overkill? Otherwise, how do you avoid potentially flying over people?

I'm not sure, but I have considered using that method of ascending straight up and doing a series of photo sweeps and then landing straight down. That way you're not flying over any streets or people and you're getting a lot of pictures in one swoop (so to speak).
