Professional drone services

By |2019-09-10T20:17:34+01:00September 10th, 2019|Categories: Aerial Filming|Tags: , , , , |0 Comments

The insurance industry is an obvious market for professional drone services The insurance industry is an obvious market for professional drone services. The ability to get ‘eyes in the sky’ is ideal at both the risk assessment and underwriting stage and for assessment of damage should a claim occur. The UK insurance market has been slow to adopt drone technology but there are signs it’s being recognised as an option and at Drone Safe Register we are now receiving enquiries. Current solutions for viewing hard to access areas include camera poles, scaffolding and access platforms. Camera poles are a [...]

Aerial filming,  drone deliveries, Iran unveiling new reconnaissance and attack drone! If you’re like us, you’ll be wondering what the future holds for drones. In a recent article we wrote about a few of the benefits of aerial filming, drone usage and we’ve also briefly touched on drone deliveries. We think is pertinent to discuss aerial filming with regard to its future and what this may look like for drone and drone flight. Originally, consumer drones were used by a few aerial filming and aerial photography enthusiasts. It all really started with drone hobbyists. Not overnight, but after a [...]

How can Drones Help The ability to scan large tracts of land that by their nature, inhibit access and manoeuvrability is something that is ideally suited to an unmanned aerial vehicles. Much time can be saved over a ground level survey when assessing land condition, crop health and [...]

UAVs and Property Inspections Drones can offer a safe, efficient and cost effective way to carry out property inspections whilst keeping your feet safely on the ground. Whatever stage of property development, drones can offer significant advantages over traditional methods such as scaffolding or cherry pickers.  Using aerial technology, inspections with high quality photography and videography can be carried out in a fraction of the time that it takes to erect scaffolding.  This means that not only are inspections completed quickly and efficiently, but at reduced cost as well. Your drone pilot can fly their [...]

Drones and Art – Collmot Drones

By |2019-03-24T23:01:47+01:00March 11th, 2019|Categories: Articles, Featured, News|Tags: , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Drones can be used to complete a great deal of functions, from inspections and surveys to search and rescue but this Hungarian company is using them in a completely new way – to create beautiful art in the sky. There are not many people who don’t enjoy the spectacle of lights in the sky but in a world where fireworks are becoming increasingly criticised for their detrimental effect on the environment and effect on local animals and wildlife, these drone shows could provide a perfect solution. Collmot say that their aim, with their creation [...]

In September 2018 DJI added a very interesting video to their YouTube channel.  It detailed experiments to measure the different in performance between search and rescue teams with and without drones. The results make for interesting viewing in terms of the drone’s potential as a life saving tool as well as a business asset. “The potential for drones to save lives is clear – at least 160 people have been rescued by drones around the world.” Romeo Durscher, DJI Director of Public Safety Integration 2018 was also the year when the RNLI trialled drones [...]

Drones Unlock the Ocean’s Secrets

Aerial surveying of the marine environment is not a new phenomenon with scientist, conservationists and researchers having long relied upon aerial images as a means of gathering data from the open oceans. However, advances in drone technology have meant that this data gathering can now be carried out faster, more regularly and far cheaper than when manned flights were required.  The quality of the imagery and footage, both transmitted in real time and stored for later review can also reduce the need for large observation teams and reveal hidden details that would be difficult to [...]

On this blog, we’ve quite often looked at the difference UAV technology is predicted to make in industries such as construction and insurance.  However, the drone’s potential isn’t limited to dry land with many maritime and offshore companies beginning to look at how they can capture and utilise their own corner of this emerging industry. One of the main fields in which drones are being deployed at sea (as they are on land) is for carrying out of marine inspections. The Royal Navy is making use of these high portable cameras to inspect their vessels [...]

Drones and Wind Turbines a perfect match

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 – [...]

Drones and Romance... You might think that drones are not the most romantic of devices but as we approach the national day of love – Valentine’s Day – here’s some ways in which UAVs have been used to spread a little romance. DJI's Valentine's Day Marketing Last  year, the marketing team at DJI were obviously briefed to find a way to boost sales of their craft in February and they came up with this.   A drone, they say, is the perfect way to treat the creative person in your life – show [...]

What to do if there’s a Drone Flying Over your House

By |2019-03-19T21:15:54+01:00February 2nd, 2019|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

So many people are enjoying flying drones as a hobby now, along with those using them commercially, that they are an increasingly common sight in our skies. However, negative press coverage, especially around the Christmas time Gatwick incident, means that people can be feeling very suspicious if they see one over or around their property. While this is understandable, the message here from DSR is that if you see a drone in the sky, don't automatically assume that it is up to no good. There are hundreds of safe and legal drone ops out [...]

Benefits of drones in Agriculture

It's largely agreed that the UK and Ireland have barely begun to tap into the huge potential that commercial drones have to offer. An industry still in its infancy, the business world is still investigating ways in which drones and unmanned aerial vehicles in general can make operations faster, safer and more cost efficient. One area that has been quicker to the party in leveraging 'drone power' is agriculture.  In fact 18% of farmers are now thought to be using drones in some form to assist them with their land management.  Particularly impressive for an industry that has [...]

Drones – the Good News

By |2019-03-19T21:16:11+01:00January 26th, 2019|Categories: Articles, General|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

Drones have been subject to a lot of bad press over the recent years, not least following the events at Gatwick and Heathrow in December 2018. Here at Drone Safe Register, we don’t feel that enough is factually known about the circumstances on those days in December last year for us to make a specific comment as yet, although we are working through legal and governmental channels to see where we can take the drone industry moving forward. It’s clear that there are concerns over illegal operators, the criminal fraternity, safety and invasion of privacy, something [...]

Drone Deliveries – Not Just for Pizzas

By |2019-03-19T21:16:11+01:00January 21st, 2019|Categories: General|Tags: , , , , , , , , , , , , |0 Comments

If you tell someone you are a drone pilot, you will often be asked about the potential of UAVs to carry out deliveries (usually pizza, proving that the UK is indeed a nation that loves its food!). Regular headlines appear with multinational companies promising drone deliveries of the goods we order online.  Not that these aren't both laudable goals – we are increasingly time pressed and the idea of fast and responsive deliveries is certainly attractive. However, drones can drop more than your latest Amazon order, and are already carrying out lifesaving work dropping medical supplies [...]
