In addition to the creative application of drone technology, it can also be applied to more practical uses.
A drone's ability to hover in place and orbit around an object, coupled with an on-board 4K camera with zoom-ability, helps you gather high quality, valuable data for various assets or projects, from vantage points never seen before.
Forget the cost of traditional helicopters. Small unmanned aerial systems (sUAS), also known as drones, are paving the way for cost effective aerial data collection. Due to their portability and use of lithium-ion batteries instead of gasoline, drones are far more efficient and environmentally-friendly. Since drones don't have to take off miles away or fly back miles to refuel, they can take off and land directly on site, where refueling is as simple as swapping out spent batteries for new ones --- getting your bird's eye view back into the air in no time. As a result, drones can conduct up to five times more surveys or inspections than manned aircraft or ground crews.
Drones help reduce the risk of putting personnel unnecessarily in harms way. Most infrastructure assets like wind turbines, cell towers, power lines, and bridges need human personnel to physically climb the structure each time for an inspection. Due to that risk, inspections occur less frequently, and are sometimes far less accurate due to a person's fixed and limited view. Drones have the ability to capture imagery more fluidly and precisely from various heights, angles, and perspectives --- with personnel safely either on the ground, or back at an office computer, watching a live-stream of the inspection directly from the drone in real time.
