On Tuesday, we received an aerial filming request from Channel 5’s The Gadget Show, who urgently needed a licensed UAV pilot to supervise two of their presenters in operating a DJI Inspire 1 drone on Brighton Pier on Friday. What a great first project to come back to after a manic wedding and two weeks abroad on my honeymoon!
One of the best parts about aerial filming with drones is that you get to spend a lot of your time outside. As weather conditions have to be fairly pleasant in order to fly, we tend to spend many a day in the sunshine and recently we even got to ‘work’ on the beach!
Over the last few years, there has been a surge in popularity and the widespread use of UAVs or drones as most people now call them. Besides them being used for artistic videography, search and rescue, and even FPV racing, perhaps one of the most obvious and befitting applications for them has been in the field of aerial surveys and roof inspections.
As the prevalence of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) or drones increases dramatically, so do new ideas for their uses. While some of the proposed applications seem a bit far fetched, or perhaps simply ahead of their time, there are others which show the potential to possibly change the world as we know it.
