About Us

Irma Recovery


As we wake this morning to the aftermath of Hurricane Irma it is evident the destruction of Florida is on a scale not seen since 1992 when Hurricane Andrew blew through south Florida. Our thoughts and prayers are with each person that is displaced, stranded in their homes and huddled down in shelters.

I have surveyed the media available on the internet detailing the extent of the damage and with legacy reporters stranded due to flooding, debris and fallen trees and airports suspending operations, the only footage available is from the drones of people who braved the storm.

Here at Vertigo Drones we will always value our commitment to you, our customer and not profiteering from tragedy. So until your lights are on, your children are back in school and life resumes as normal we will be providing Free Expedited Shipping for all orders over $25 shipped to Florida, select bordering states and territories in Gulf waters.

I have extensive experience having served in the Marines providing aviation logistic support for the Katrina recovery efforts in New Orleans. We will be working around the clock with our partners in industry, state, local and federal governments to ensure all options are visited to help those in need.

God speed to those in affected areas

A Letter from Our CEO.

It's not very often a retailer will put profit aside and thank their customers but we want to continue to exceed your expectations. 2016 was a good year for our company and more importantly a great year for you, our customers.

As early adopters, you risked the status quo. You placed an expensive bet that a new technology would enhance your capabilities whether for recreation, capturing your family's unique experiences from new perspectives or gaining a competitive edge in your profession. From everyone in this new industry, I thank you.

Thank you through the product shortages as refinements were made in the factory. Thank you for being patient when an 'improvement' to the firmware/software may have unintended consequences. Thank you for your constant feedback where improvement opportunities existed. Above all else, thank you for making us your choice for products, parts and service when it matters most.
