However, did you know that they can also be fitted with thermal cameras to add a whole new dimension to property inspection? State of the art thermal cameras offer a non-contact temperature measurement across areas that are hard to access or view from a ground based perspective. As with all drone inspections, the health and safety risks associated with working at height are minimised, as are [...]

Insurance Companies Embrace Drones

By |2019-03-19T21:16:32+01:00October 27th, 2018|Categories: Inspections & Surveys, Insurance|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

Insurance companies can be one of the groups that can really benefit from embracing drone technology to streamline their business processes.  Of course UAVs are still relative newcomers to the UK and so much of their potential remains untapped but it seems such a natural fit between the drone pilot network and insurance loss adjusters, we are surprised that more are yet to take advance of the technology. Insurance Assessment with Traditional Methods Let’s take an example of a storm, all too common in the UK with its unpredictable weather. A roof is damaged and an insurance claim [...]

Drone Flights Indoors – CAA Provide Clarification on Recent Changes

By |2019-03-19T21:16:32+01:00October 19th, 2018|Categories: General, News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

The recent Air Navigation Law Amendment (The Air Navigation Order 2016 as amended) made several very important changes to the drone legislation, not least of which was the introduction of a single weight class for up to 20kg (rather than the previous 0 – 7kg, 7 – 20kg split).  However, there was one amendment with regard to indoor drone flight that seemed to go largely unreported. Prior to the amendment, it was stated by the CAA that the law applied equally to drone flights taking place indoors or outdoors i.e. there was no distinct difference between [...]

By |2019-03-19T21:16:33+01:00October 8th, 2018|Categories: General, News|Tags: , , , , , , |0 Comments

This is the second part in our series designed to explain some of the basic principles about hiring a drone operator and the standards they have to meet in order to fly safely and legally.  In particular, we’ll be looking at the distances that a drone pilot must keep to as this is something that you’ll often hear talked about and can be a bit confusing. Maximum Height that a Drone Can Fly So a drone may only fly up to 400 feet about the ground, that’s 120 metres.  This is to keep it under the [...]

By |2019-03-19T21:16:33+01:00October 6th, 2018|Categories: General, News, Property|Tags: , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Today’s property market is an incredibly competitive environment and sellers are always looking for ways to present their property in such a way that it stands out from the rest.  Drone photography and videography can be the perfect way to do this. Unlike ‘the old days’, buyers are not likely to be limited to the properties on display in the window of an estate agent.  Instead, they have the freedom to browse online finding properties that exactly suit their needs and budgets and so they will be often overwhelmed by the sheer choice available.  When they [...]

Peter Jones – Planning to Bring Drone Technology to the Forefront of the UK’s Plans

By |2019-03-19T21:16:33+01:00October 3rd, 2018|Categories: Dragons Den, News, Peter Jones|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Peter Jones was the Dragon of choice before DSR founder, Mark Boyt, flew into the Den. So when he left having secured investment from the man himself, it was understandably very exciting. What remained unknown initially, however, was the level of personal involvement that Peter would bring to DSR. In fact, this has exceeded all expectations with Peter having already personally attended many meetings and even taken time to film a short promotional video espousing the benefits of the Drone Safe Register network of qualified and legal pilots. “I’m absolutely delighted with my investment into the UK [...]

We spend lots of time telling people within the drone community exactly how being a DSR member can offer great advantages – from support and resources through to lead generation and stock footage sales income – but for this blog post we thought you might like to hear it from the horse’s mouth.  Danny Rutterford of R.D-Rutterford Droneography (www.rutterford-droneography.co.uk) has been so impressed with the benefit he’s already had from his membership, that he is telling people all about it on his website . Danny is relatively new to the world of commercial drone pilots. He says that he’d [...]
