Roof Inspection

Drones are safer, faster and cheaper than hiring scaffolding and getting a builder to inspect the roof visually. Results such as high resolution images can be with you within the same day via digital delivery of images. Drones can be used to detect water pooling in the roof (using aerial thermal FLIR camera), cracked and damaged tiles, missing tiles, damaged or missing lead flashing and more.

Real Estate

Real estate agents have increasingly turned to drones to capture some of their most captivating listing photos. Whether it be for video on your display screens, or images for your listings, there is not better way to show the scale, size and attractions of the property. Aerial photography using drones is one of the best way real estate agents can make their listings stand out.

Building Inspection

There are also those buildings that are just too dangerous to get close to – especially where conventional scaffolding isn’t an easy option. We are asked to inspect structures that are either too hard or too expensive to reach by conventional means. Over the years we’ve provided aerial drone inspections for homes, residential retirement homes, factories, church spires, aircraft hangars and medieval buildings to schools.

wind turbine drone inspection gloucester

Wind Turbines

A wind turbine instantly becomes a liability the moment the turbine stops turning. Wind turbine towers and rotor blades are exposed to the whims of the weather. Drone inspection provides a visual or thermographic image of the state of the blades and this can show the degradation of the blades and their angle of attack. A drone inspection with CDP is a same-day cost-effective and efficient inspection method compared to traditional telephotography or other manual inspection methods. With a drone inspection solution, you can achieve both visual and thermal images on wind turbines for on-site analysis and assessment regarding the condition of the rotor blades.

solar panels drone inspection

Solar Panels

We can program our drones to cover large areas such as solar panel arrays, and with thermal FLIR cameras on the drone, we can easily detect faults within the solar panel, chips, cracks and even if the panel is overheating due to a malfunctioning circuit board below the PV panel. Drones featuring thermal imaging payloads allow operators to perform a full solar farm operation in a matter of hours, compared to days using manual methods. They increase data quantity and quality and reduce costs.

Weddings & Events

Drone photography can provide amazing results and help capture unique aerial imagery at weddings. The idea of aerial videography is nothing new. It allows for an aerial or high up image to be shot, which can be the best way to get some of the best images, particularly when there are various things or people standing in the way when shooting from the ground. There’s no longer the need to miss the perfect shot by a group of people in front of a major milestone.

Aerial photography is the taking of photographs from an aircraft or a UAS drone. Platforms for aerial photography include fixed-wing aircraft, helicopters, unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs or “drones”), balloons, blimps and dirigibles, rockets, pigeons, kites, parachutes, stand-alone telescoping and vehicle-mounted poles. Mounted cameras may be triggered remotely or automatically; hand-held photographs may be taken by a photographer.

Aerial photography should not be confused with air-to-air photography, where one or more aircraft are used as chase planes that “chase” and photograph other aircraft in flight.
