They say that size doesn’t matter, they say that it’s a myth! And while to some degree this is true (in this case we are talking drones) we have found that the truth is somewhere between the two.
UAV technology comes in many different shapes and sizes, from the ultra small and portable Mavic Pro (which some of you may have) to large heavy lifting rigs that are designed purely for lifting cinematic camera equipment into the sky. But in practical terms, the thing that always tops size Is quality of data.
Picture this, You hire a drone operator to carry out an aerial survey, its in a very tight space and awkward to get to. Your operator slides open the doors of his van to reveal a huge shiny 20K drone, with a lens so long it would pick up a nat flying over 3 miles away. He spends ages preparing the drone for launch, it soars into the sky and….It’s so big that it cannot get close enough to provide the detail that you need! If the operator had come prepared with several different machines, they would have been able to get the quality of data that you needed.
