Prior to legal aerial inspections using UAV’s, assessing a roof, chimney or other high structure was an expensive and costly exercise.

With our equipment and licensed pilots, inspections of structures such as roofs and chimneys, churches, commercial buildings and towers no longer require expensive scaffolding or mechanical lifters.

After our pre planning and flight assessment, we will be able to provide you with high resolution images, and high definition film of your property.

With the equipment and large operational screen, we are able to see live footage from the UAV, and therefore obtain the exact photographs and film required.

FAQ's

What height can the drones reach?

Under normal flying conditions and in accordance with CAA (Civil Aviation Rules) the drones must remain below 400′ or 125m. We find that for almost all aerial surveys this is more than adequate. For any surveys exceeding this height a permit must be applied for.

How long do the DJI drones fly for?

Commercial drones can often fly between 20 – 35 minutes depending on weather conditions.

Can I view the footage whilst the survey is being carried out?

If you request this with one our support team the surveyor will ensure he is equipped with “Goggles” to allow you to view the footage live in real time as the drone is in flight
