Drones seem to be the way of the future. They’re used for everything — from delivering packages to videotaping construction projects. With this in mind, you may be wondering, “Is a drone a good investment for my business?” It absolutely is. We’ll help you figure out how to best use it, and how to pick the right type for your business.
What are drones used for?
The great part about investing in a drone is that it can be used for multiple parts of your business. Many contractors use drones to scope out their site, which greatly decreases the time spent on scoping. In addition, they can be used to check on the progress of your project. Instead of these steps taking hours on foot, they will only take minutes with a drone. You will also be able to identify any safety issues without potentially putting your workers in harm’s way. It’s so much easier and safer than having to check it all yourself!
Lastly, drones can be used for marketing purposes. Drones can capture high-quality photos and videos from angles you wouldn’t be able to get otherwise. Sharing these photos and videos will give potential clients an even better insight to the quality of your work. As you can see, you’ll definitely see a return on your investment with a drone.
Do I need any special licensing?
Depending on where you live, you may need special licensing to operate a drone. In the United States, you will need to register your drone with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and may need to take a licensing exam. Individual states or cities may have additional requirements, so be sure to check your local laws before operating a drone.
What kind of drone should I get?
Now that you know how to use a drone for your business, you may be wondering what type to get. When investing in a drone, you first need to figure out what kind of wings you need. There are two main options: fixed wing or rotary wing. A fixed-wing drone will help you film taller projects and will fly straight. On the other hand, a rotary-wing drone is easier to control and will hover in one spot, making it ideal for getting finer details of your project. Depending on your business’s needs, either can be a great option.
