Whether you call them drones or UAVs, the commercial use of unmanned aerial vehicles is entering the main stream. Using drones for surveys and inspections is quickly proving to be one of the safest, fastest and most cost-effective ways to get the job done; if you know what you’re doing.
We’re not talking about the hobby drones you got you kids for Christmas; commercial drones can weight up to 55 lbs. and carry equipment from HD cameras to sophisticated LIDAR equipment.
Mark and Patrick talk to David Stacey, the owner of AIR TOPO, one of the leading companies in this burgeoning field. David and his team have been building, programming and flying commercial UAVs longer than just about anyone else in the industry, and his equipment has proven itself in sustained Texas winds of over 35 mph!

Without getting too technical, what that means is now there are two Red Wing’s Oil and Gas HSE Podcast shows in iTunes.
