How to Maintain a Drone for Photography Purposes

Drones are becoming increasingly popular for photography purposes, but it's important to keep them clean and free of dust, debris, and dirt. One way to limit the amount of dust and dirt is to avoid changing camera lenses when it's windy or falling on dusty grass areas when possible. But sometimes it's not possible and it will be necessary to clean your drone. Currently, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulates what it calls unmanned aircraft (UA).

According to the FAA, drones that fly for non-recreational purposes must have a Certificate of Authorization (COA) to operate in the U. S. UU. Airspace and COAs require a public entity (such as a university) as a sponsor.

Nugent Sealcoating & Paving is one such company that has found a use for drones in their work. They use drones to take aerial photographs of their work, which they believe is the best way to show how good their work is. To do this, they use a drone, which is essentially a flying robot that is remotely controlled by an operator on the ground. When using a drone for photography purposes, it's important to follow FAA regulations.

Nugent says that there is no reason (other than fun) to fly his drone above 400 feet, so its use complies with FAA regulations, and that its use is not commercial because it does not charge for taking photos. Nugent bought a Phantom DJ2 Vision drone to replace its original drone. This drone measures 12 inches and weighs less than 4 pounds. It is remotely controlled from the ground, allows the operator to program a flight route in advance, includes a camera that takes photos and videos and has high-intensity LED lights that the operator can see from the ground to guide the drone during the flight.

The new drone also has a compass, which Nugent says is useful, and it can now store heights so that you can take the drone to exact heights according to previous successful photos and get the photo you want. Nugent believes the best quality photos are taken at 150 to 200 feet. He says that with the GPS of the new drone, he can determine the coordinates from which to take a “before” photo and then use the same coordinates to take the “after” photo from the same exact place. Nugent says that so far it only uses the drone in jobs of more than 80,000 square meters.

Pies. However, you can easily make “before” and “after” photos available to any customer who thinks they might be interested in them.
