What are underwater Drone Inspections?

Underwater Drones are fast becoming the go to for deep sea inspections across the world. Using an ROV (Remotely Operated Vehicle) inspection, saves on cost, efficiency and lessens human risk as deep sea divers are not as needed as much as once before, in the oil & gas sectors. An ROV, on a general level, is connected to a cable which is used to communicate to the remote control, providing visual feedback to the piloting monitor when taking pictures. And this will allow engineers to spot problems and areas for repair or replacement. Some underwater Drones vary but the Falcon ROV can carry up to 14kg payload and can submerge itself up to 300m. The camera, as you can imagine is one of the most important components of an underwater Drone. And one is the DTG3 which is designed to work well in low light. The 4k internal camera gives a 270 degree rotation. The visual feedback is up to 8 megapixels. Another is the Revolution underwater camera. This has greater payload capabilities, deeper

Using Drones to film sporting events

  Believe it or not, Drones are becoming quite an integral part of the sport industry. And the filming of sporting events has made Drones an invaluable tool. As long as a Drone does not interfere with the sport itself, it can film the most amazing shots. So, a Drone can fly out into the ocean and take breath-taking shots at a wind surfing competition, whereas, traditionally, a film crew would have to use a helicopter to garner something similar. Action sports Skiing, car racing, Supercross and skateboarding are just a few sports that have made good use of Drones. Due to the fast moving and unpredictable nature of the sports, Drones are most commonly used to film the events because of its manoeuvrability and efficiency. As these events are not in an arena, it makes it hard for fans and camera crews to keep up with the pace. But as a Drone can quite literally be feet away from athletes, the footage is usually second to none. During the winter sports at the Olympics, Drones were

How can drone footage of a golf course enhance the image of the golf club and attract new members?

  Drones, as we know have multiple purposes including repair, maintenance and promotion. But now it seems, the superior definition of drone footage can also aid the enhancement of members to a golf club. And while the landscape of a golf course it pristine, it is not always easy to show off the complete beauty using a ground video. And this is where a drone comes in.   Now the marketing team at golf clubs can use drones to show off the beauty of the clubhouse, landscape and surrounding countryside to promote membership. And here’s how: High quality footage According to a recent report the latest drones come complete with 4k cameras and six axis stabilisation technology, making it easier to film good aerial shots.   Interactive tours:   A virtual tour can help with allowing new members and existing members to understand the golf course better. According todronezone.com: ‘Being able to study each hole using interactive golf videos will help improve a players game. It will

Which sectors across the world are using drones as a delivery tool?

  When it comes to highlighting the benefits of a Drone, the current pandemic has done just so. On realising the complications and limitations Covid placed on retail, delivery and other sectors of industry, drones literally stepped up to the plate and became a lifesaving element. Food delivery - Zomato And one sector is food delivery. Zomato, a food delivery company based in India saw a solution in using drones to efficiently deliver food through dense traffic. Testing a payload delivery the drone carried a payload of 5kg and covered over 3 miles in 10 minutes at a staggering 49mph. Deepinder Goyal, CEO of Zomato said, ‘Fifteen minutes is only possible if we take the aerial route – roads are not efficient for very fast delivery. While our biker fleet nowadays delivers in 30.5 minutes on an average (which is the fastest in the industry as far as we know), every incremental minute with our fleet becomes harder as it separates our users from their ordered food.’ Retail is yet

How drone footage can improve the sale of your property

  Age old methods of selling a property would usually involve in-house props and the aroma of freshly baked bread. But now, all that has changed and imagery is fast becoming a selling technique to reach a property’s maximum value. Here Quote 4 Drones explains why. According to Savills, a high-end estate agent, drone photography and videography allows sellers to use affordable winning shots to catch the eye of website viewers, providing ‘an emotional response’ prompting potential buyers to arrange viewings and drive sales. ‘Certainly a 30-second film clip, where the viewer feels as though they are flying down a tree-lined drive, then rising up over the house to reveal a stunning water view can be mesmerising and beneficial to a successful sale’, says a Saville representative. But drone technology is not only useful for sales but valuation and surveying teams. Roofing and structural issues of a property can be easily identified and rectified. And this all helps the buying

How are Drones being used in the solar energy industry?

A drone’s ability to cover vast areas with high-resolution aerial images makes it a tool that companies rely on to optimise their efficiency. So what better way to aid the solar energy industry than using drone technology. With the use of thermal sensors, companies are becoming even more efficient in their procedure of gathering data. In response to the growing concerns of climate change and carbon emissions there has been no better reason to focus on renewable energy. Traditionally, solar panel inspections are carried out using handheld thermal imagers to check for defective cells and cables. But now, drones can eliminate the risk element on having people working in hazardous situation and data can be recorded more efficiently. Drones such as the DJI Matrice 210 RTK V2, equipped with the XT2 thermal payloads can survey large areas within a solar farm, collecting high-resolution thermal images in one single flight. Drones reduce inspection time by 70% in comparison to tra
