Commercial drone operations

In 2017 Tone gained CASA approval to fly sub 2kg RPA commercially.
The DJI Mavic Air is a small, light 430g, versatile craft, that when finely tuned, checklists and routines are followed and is flown slowly for smooth video and photography purposes, it is relatively safe, especially in the hands of an experienced operator.
Local laws and CASA RPA rules and restriction apply, limiting whether a flight can be permitted or approved. Tone reserves the right to refuse to fly for any reason at any time even if previously agreed to. These may include safety, weather, number of people present, proximity to property, any perceived hazards, unsafe aircraft operation, failed hardware/software or any doubt as to the legality of any part of the flight plan.
All instructions and requests given by Tone will be followed by the client and anyone on location during preparation, flight and pack-up. Public liability is at the risk of the client. Though the greatest care is taken to ensure a safe and legal flight, TasView (Tone) takes no responsibility for any damage or injuries caused in any manner. Though the term “commercial” is used, the services offered currently are more akin to hobby based enthusiast.

In simple terms: YOU and only YOU are responsible for the safe operation of your craft and equipment. Any modifications you make, any local laws you break, any crashes your craft has and any damage or injury caused while flying, operating or modifying your UAV or gear are a result of your own decisions and are your sole responsibility.

Multi-rotor craft are inherently dangerous. Before flying any UAV, study your local aviation laws and obey them! Read the manual and documentation, learn about your craft thoroughly and check with or contact the manufacturer of your particular UAV regarding technical changes or any other procedures relating to your UAV before you operate it or fly it.

You must check with your local authorities and Aviation Administration in your particular area regarding the laws, rules and regulations before flying a UAV!

Australia’s safety laws for drones, or more technically correct, remotely piloted aircraft (RPA), as defined in the Civil Aviation Safety Regulations Part 101, vary whether you are flying commercially or recreational/for fun. They should be read and fully understood before flying any RPA in Australia.

When using your UAV, especially when learning to fly or testing a new craft, we recommend you are at least 1 Kilometer or more away from any people, buildings, roads, obstacles or obstructions, however it is up to YOU to check your local LAWS and REGULATIONS regarding where, how, when and where you fly your UAV.
Please note: our recommendation is only our opinion and our guide as we believe in SAFETY FIRST – and given that there are a lot of learner flyers buying UAV’s, RC Craft or any type of Radio Controlled Craft, these things can be VERY DANGEROUS. They can cause harm and damage to almost anything if they are not used correctly. These craft can also fail or malfunction at any time without warning!! We urge you to understand this. It is ENTIRELY up to YOU to take responsibility for the use of YOUR own craft (UAV).

We recommend you NOT make changes to your craft as it will likely void any warranty. Follow only the manufactures advice regarding any changes or any other information for your particular model UAV. By viewing the contents of this website you agree not to undertake any legal action against us in any form or manner.

Opinion only – for safety…

Added opinion only –  based on research from many sources over the years, including the Internet and Radio Control Clubs and experienced RC pilots with 30 years experience.
If you are a beginner, it is recommended you take a training course in flying your craft before you fly it. From various sources researched over the last 30 years, it is entirely possible that the possibly claimed between 80% to 90% of beginners will crash their craft either on the first flight, or near there-after, if they have not had the appropriate training to fly Remote Control Aircraft (of the particular type being flown).
This information has only been added for perspective, because in our opinion only, an RC aircraft in the hands of someone who does not know how or understand how to fly it could potentially be very dangerous.

Before flying, contact your local Radio Controlled Aircraft Club, or appropriate Government Agency to find out where you can gain and receive the correct training before you take flight.

TASVIEW Website believes STRONGLY in SAFETY FIRST when operating RC aircraft (UAV, Helicopters, Fixed Wing etc. or any other type of RC craft).

Safe and Happy Flying…

  1. Good afternoon
    I’ve read your site carefully, and have a question.
    Are you able to shoot video of a car going along a country highway in Tasmania?
    The shot is for a promo video I am recording in the next few weeks.


  2. Hi I’m wondering if there’s still a problem with the scout x4 .I recently purchased one on March 2016 how can I find out if mine is a flying garbage can. Thanks alot.


  3. Hello Michael and Anthony
    My name is Cheryl O’Connell and I teach geography to Senior School students in Western Australia. I am setting an exam and producing a broadsheet for the exam and I would like to seek permission to use your photo of the Tasman bridge, the image will be used in conjunction with a topographic map to identify cultural and natural features. This exam is produced by a non profit organisation, the Geography Association of Western Australia, as support to the States teachers.
    Look forward to hearing from you at:
