    Hey guys,

    I had a couple of questions about aerial inspection with drones, especially close to infrastructure like buildings, bridges etc and I was wondering if anyone here has done work like that in the past. Just want to learn a bit abut the area. Let me know.

    I've done Roof Inspections for a local firm. Not sure if this is what you're needing or not but you're more than welcome to contact me.

    Yeah I think there's some decent parallels between the two. Are you free sometime today ? I'll DM you.

    I had a tree fall on my roof last summer. Since I'm getting too darn old to be scrambling around on the roof I decided to use my P2 for an inspection. Believe it or not, the insurance company was very grateful for this video. Sorry about the Youtube quality. I sent them the raw video.

    I have assisted friends and neighbors by videoing their rooftops so they could look for missing/damaged shingles. I also have a friend who owns several production plants. He has asked me to create "maps" of the yards. One resulting by product is visual inspection of the rooftops. While we were at it, we also took a good hard look at the things on the ends of his cranes. It was easier and safer than lowering a 100' boom into the yard.
