Default Re: Drones & Inspections

Hi Alan,

The best drone to get for roof inspections is the DJI Phantom 4 Pro (P4P). It has a 20MP camera and shoots video in 4K and provides the most accurate data and measurement results compared with lower resolution cameras such as those used with the DJI Mavic Pro or Inspire Series. This is the level of detail you need. The P4P safety software is excellent too, which will allow you to fly close to the rooftop (if needed) and that will improve your chances you don't crash it if you don't have much experience flying. However, one thing I do want to make you aware of is that it is illegal to fly commercial operations with any drone if you don't have your Part 107 license issued by the FAA (most people don't know this). If you don't want to go through the process of becoming a certified drone pilot you can hire an Up Sonder professional pilot. All our pilots are FAA certified, insured, and have their own drone. They can meet you on location and fly for you legally. I hope this helps. Feel free to follow up with any additional questions.
