In the time it takes for someone to assess how to access high level areas, a drone could already have been flown up and around the elements and recorded both video and photo content. Images are reviewed in real-time to make sure every angle required is captured at varying zoom levels.
For high level inspections that requires specialist equipment, a drone survey can negate the need for unsightly components and scaffold that would be required to provide safe access for a physical inspection by a person. There's also no need for anyone to be present other than the operator.
Our drones are equipped with the latest in camera technology. They're designed to be capable of producing cinema quality content. We probably don't need them to be that good, but it does mean that the level of detail makes assessing the images afterwards a simple exercise.
If you've ever had to carry out high level inspections using conventional methods, you will know all too well how much it costs. With a drone, there is no scaffold, cherry picker, or abseiler. The lack of safety equipment means that the cost of a drone is £100s if not £1,000s ,ore competitive.
