Drone FAQ’s

Aerial Drones

  • – Drones imporve health and safety.
  • – Drones collect in-depth and detailed data.
  • – Rapid deployment.
  • – Flexiblity, will suit the majority of inspections.
  • – Easily shareable data.
  • – Ability to inspect the difficult to reach and hazardous areas.
  • – Reduces insurance costs.
  • – Saves time and reduces costs.

The usage of Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is a cost effective process. Infrastructure assets are typically remote and difficult to survey, making a drone ideal. A technician is not required to climb up a chimney or wind turbine, instead a drone with a camera can send footage to an experienced inspector. UAV’s can easily get access to hard to reach places faster, cheaper and minimise risk, compared to manual inspection.

Agriculture Drones

  • – Drones can be used for crop spraying.
  • – Drones can be used for aerial dressing.
  • – Thermal imaging enabled drones can help identify well-watered regions.
  • – Drones help in detecting issues including soil erosion and damage.
  • – An agricultural drone is also great for identifying types of pests.

Yes, there are options for live video transmission from the air to a field monitor or even video goggles.

Category: General Drones
  • – Prohibited to fly near airports or airfields.
  • – Height restrictions of below 400ft (120m).
  • – Drone should be observed at all times – stay 150ft (50m) away from people, vehicles and buildings.
  • – Never fly near aircraft.

We shoot in ultra high definition 4K and can provide 1080p HD footage.

Category: General Drones

Photogrammetry is the use of photography in surveying and mapping. It’s used to measure distances between objects, and photogrammetry software creates 3D renderings.

Property Drones

If your drone has a camera, generally you cannot fly closer than 50m to people, vehicles or buildings.

A camera could detect pipework between 1-2 metres under screed.

This depends on the project and the size of the property in question and within the legal heights of up to 400ft (120m).

  • – Inspections can take place during production.
  • – Rapid inspections.
  • – Digital results.
  • – Costs are reduced.
Category: Property Drones
  • – Thermal imaging helps in detection of heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors.
  • – Detecting damaged or malfunctioning heating systems and air-conditioner compressor leaks.
  • – Detecting issues that can lead to energy loss.

Infrared (thermal imaging) is an advanced technology that provides homeowners information about their homes that simply cannot be observed using conventional inspections.

Yes, a thermal camera is suitable to detect flat-roof leaks if performed in dry conditions.

Thermal Drones

  • – Spotting the presence of intruders, such as rats, mice and other larger pests hiding within the structure and detected from heat signatures.
  • – Locating flue leaks, which can lead to carbon monoxide poisoning.
Category: Thermal Drones

Infra-red cameras are effective at locating hot spots in the home:

  • – Detection of circuit breakers in need of immediate – Detecting overloaded and undersized circuits, overheated electrical equipment and components
  • – Detecting general electrical faults.
Category: Thermal Drones
  • – Thermal imaging helps in identifying plumbing leaks.
  • – Hidden roof leaks before they cause serious damage.
  • – Identifying missing, damaged or wet insulation.
  • – Water and moisture intrusion around penetrations that could lead to structural damage and mold.

  • – Thermal imaging helps in detection of heat loss and air infiltration in walls, ceilings, floors, windows and doors.
  • – Detecting damaged or malfunctioning heating systems and air-conditioner compressor leaks.
  • – Detecting issues that can lead to energy loss.

Three ways to conduct thermal inspection include:

  • – Baseline thermography.
  • – Thermal trending thermography.
  • – Comparative thermography.
Category: Thermal Drones

Thermography is the process of using an infrared camera to look for abnormally hot or cold areas on a component operating under normal conditions. It is useful for the detection of corrosion/erosion damage in plants operating at elevated temperatures.
