Why are drones better than Tower inspections?
How high can you fly a drone over a tower?
- In short, even though the Part 107 rules prohibit flights over 400 feet in the air, a drone pilot surveying a tower may fly the full height of the tower as well as an additional 400 feet above the top of the tower (as illustrated in the image below). This being said, it’s crucial to know your airspace.
What is the project goal of the cell tower project?
- Project Goal: Collect highly detailed visual data regarding the condition of a cell phone tower. Mission: The Unmanned Vehicle Technologies team used a drone to collect clear, accurate visual data on the state of a cell phone tower.
How are Chinese inspectors using drones to make their jobs faster?
- This video shows how inspectors in China’s Yunnan Province are using drones to make their jobs faster and more efficient. Using a drone, inspectors have gone from inspecting one or two pylons a day to inspecting ten to twenty a day. Before conducting your mission it’s important to have your objectives clearly defined.
