Real Life Example of Using Drones in Construction:

Let’s say a customer owns a three story hotel, and wants the roof inspected. You find out, there is no roof access, and it has a 12/12 pitch. You have two options, hire another company to come in with their equipment, which could take days to complete a full roof inspection costing extra money and time. Or take twenty minutes out of your day to fly a drone up near the roof and complete a full inspection. Having the ability to inspect the roof by drone will not only save time and money, but it will also keep you and your crew safe from the dangers that come with steep pitch roof systems.
