Quadcopter Applications

Applications for Quadcopters are being discovered regularly now that are becoming relatively inexpensive and more capable.

Apart from model aircraft flying enthusiasts some of the other  applications are quite surprising. They are now used by:

  • Realtors – Videos of properties are used in sales presentation for prospective buyers.
  • Photographers – Aerial shots and videos of landscapes.
  • Emergency Services – In a recent pier fire they were used to look for hot spots to help guide the water hoses.
  • TV Reporters – Quadcopters fitted with HD Video cameras are being used in news reports more and more as the video quality increases and the cost reduces.
  • Emergency Services – Quadcopters are of great benefit in search and rescue operations, helping to locat injured people and also keeping emergency personnel safe.
  • Engineers – Quadcopters are being deployed to aid inspections of industrial plants such as boilers and storage vessels where human access is often restricted or dangerous.
  • Law Enforcement – Helping to keep an eye on the bad guys whilst keeping the good guys safe.
  • Military – Armed Drones are well known and can be very effective on the battlefield but Quadcopter Drones with videos cameras are performing great work giving a view of the conflict with out risking soldiers lives.
  • Doctors – Drones or Quadcopters are being used to deliver medicines to remote villages in some parts of the World. One system, Matternet uses recharging stations to enable medicine-carrying quadcopters to cover vast distances in several ‘hops’.
  • Home Delivery – Whether it was just a publicity or not Amazon certainly created a lot of interest with their Amazon Prime Air Delivery System dropping off Amazon products to outside customers’ front doors.
  • Us – They are great fun for us to use too!
