Coverdrone undertook a Drone User Study during the last quarter of 2022. This article shows some of the headline findings. The Drone User Study was a survey open to all drone operators across the globe, and received over 3,700 responses. Its purpose was to gain a greater and more in-depth understanding of the needs of drone operators worldwide, determine how operators currently use their drones, and give them the opportunity to share their collective views on the future of the drone industry. With the drone industry evolving and growing at such a rapid rate, the invaluable insight w..
Drone technology has made impressive strides in the last few years and the construction sector has taken notice. Affordable survey-grade drones are making business digitisation accessible to contractors of all sizes and getting the right information from the field is no longer the most frustrating part of a construction worker’s job. Drones are providing construction companies with accurate site data in significantly less time and at a lower cost than traditional options. Innovative firms are leveraging drones to increase efficiency, inject transparency into operations, and reduce safety risks..
Yuneec H850 Hexcopter YUNH850EU All content subject to changeWhat we (probably) know:The H850 will be a 6 rotor powerful enterprise drone.It has 2 rotors upside down, speculation of why is so that the drone can have larger propellers closer together.The H850 will be equipped with 2 batteries like the M300 providing up to 60 mins of flight time. Each battery with 13000 mAh capacity. Yuneec's current drones don't sport this capacity so there will be no backwards compatibility for the batteries.It will have the option for a thermal camera.The drone will use lidar, most likely for..

When I heard a new 'Drone-Port' was to be built in Coventry I was very excited. Concept cargo drones such as the 'Sabrewing' pictured below will become reality and take to the skies at some stage during this decade. Electric powered, autonomous and able to take off and land vertically before transitioning to convential flight once airborne will give them endurance, range and efficiency. Over the last five years I have seen loads of articles saying drone deliveries are just round the corner so, hearing that a Drone-Port was to be built I pictured a large site on the edge of an industrial a..

In all honesty, I have never been interested in flying model aircraft, drones or photography or videography for that matter; so why do I now find myself as the proud owner of a Mavic 2 Pro (commonly referred to as a “flying toaster” by one of my more professional drone colleagues) & why I find myself part way through the completion of my Permissions for Commercial Operations (PfCO) certification?(Incidentally, my colleague flies a drone that weighs about 26Kg – so about the same as a microwave!)The size does not matter - after all, all drones are a bloomin nuisance, just toys and invaders ..

In the past DJI have claimed that their Professional products are modular, but customers have been disappointed when they find out their older drone parts are now useless, for example batteries, propellers, cameras, gimbals and chargers of the Inspire 1 were not at all compatible with the Inspire 2, and all new cameras released for the Inspire 2 were not backwards compatible with the Inspire 1. Customers were also disgruntled when their consumer drone parts cannot be used to reduce the cost of upgrading to a professional level drone - none of the Phantom 4 accessories, camera, remote co..
