My first goal in shooting video was to show that flying around infrastructure is safe, as long as you keep a respectful distance and don't cross private property lines. Second, I wanted the video to show that drones are a safe and inexpensive way to inspect infrastructure. These still images could show more detail if it was used by a county or state employee who's job was to inspect infrastructure. Finally, a drone platform let's you see what the top of stuff looks like and gives a better feel for its placement in the community.
|The Hays, Kansas water tower next to the Sternberg Museum. I made sure my drone did not cross the fence around the tower.|
|At 400 feet up, the water tower is way below the drone. Now we can see what's on top of the tower. This image is looking towards the East.|
|The Park, Kansas water tower. Again, I kept a respectful distance away from the tower.|
