INSPECTIONS AND SURVEYS
When a Drone is not the right tool for the job
Drones are not always permitted in certain situations. Sometimes the appropriate permissions from neighbours are not forthcoming, or the property is in restricted airspace, perhaps by an airport. Even the weather may not play ball. In such cases Drone Media Imaging will use a professional industry grade telescopic mast which will utilise the same camera payloads as our fleet of drones will carry, to a height of 15m (50ft) which is around 3 stories (pitched roof) or 4 stories (flat roof).
The use of a photographic mast is not restricted by the same legislation that a Drone is, such as distances of 30m to people, property, vessels or vehicles that are not under the control of the Drone Pilot when taking-off and 50m when executing a flight plan.
