  The need to shift to renewable energy sources means that use of solar power is increasing. In the right location, solar panels are a simple and cost-effective way to generate electricity. Some homeowners are now installing solar panels to generate their own power, and the UK Government has a number of solar power stations planned. Solar panels are heavily exposed to the weather, and this means they require regular inspection and maintenance. A solar panel aerial photographer is the ideal solution for this. Using drone technology, visual and thermographic images can be captured without the need for physically accessing [...]

Wind Turbine Inspections by the UK's leading drone pilots At the end of 2017 there were nearly 345,000 wind turbines operating worldwide and it’s fair to assume that this number has increased since then. Each must be regularly inspected and maintained in order to keep it at optimum efficiency. There are some very obvious difficulties in carrying out thorough inspections on these towering structures. Luckily, these are difficulties that UAVs are ideally positioned to overcome. The requirement for high quality cameras, craft and licensed experienced pilots means that much of this inspection work is outsourced – [...]
