I have a DJI Phantom 4 pro. We primarily use it to inspect tower antennas for ICE damage after storms. Saves climbing time etc. I must look at the legalities here in Canada, but since we are flying only around our towers…I believe it’s a safe bet no one is going to bug me. After all, if air traffic is anywhere near our towers…there are bigger problems. Flying over busy streets and people or near an airport, you are asking for problems.

Good day, I am trying to list out all the uses for a drone to justify buying one. Here are a few that I have come up with: 1. New tower site surveys. we are running into areas that our standard 45' tower will not cut it. (I know its short but hey we have elevation changes from 7200' to 8600' in less than 3 miles.) a drone could be used to determine how high a tower needs to be to get the best coverage. 2. Tower maintenance. We have a water tower that we are on that is no longer in use nor maintained. The top ladder is about to fall off and we need to get it repaired. A drone can take the needed pictures from the top to help us determine what parts/bolts/welder we need to fix it. That would save a trip with an 80' bucket truck so we only will need it once. What else can anyone think of for use of a drone? What would justify the cost to make it clearly a tool and not a toy? -- David Jones NGL Connection 307-288-5491 ext 702
