Utilizing drones for powerline inspections is the solution to these problems. Drones are able to quickly and easily cover large areas, allowing for a more comprehensive inspection. Additionally, drones are much more cost-effective than traditional methods and pose far less risk to personnel. By using drones for powerline inspections, companies can save time and money while still ensuring the safety of their employees.

From start to finish, working with Skycam, Jamie, was fantastic and seamless. Jamie was always available, via email and mobile, which was a huge relief given I am based in Dubai. I had never organized a drone before, so understandably had many questions, to which Jamie guided me through the entire process. I received the images and videos literally same day, and the quality of the images are fantastic and just what I wanted! My boss is absolutely thrilled! I would 100% recommend Jamie and Skycam and will absolutely look to use Skycam again in the future!

Allison turned up when she said she was going to, was efficient and professional. Allison explained exactly what was going to happen to get the photos that I had requested and how she was going to manage this. Allison was really knowledgeable with the equipment and it proved in the outcome! The 3D footage of my property is amazing.

I contacted James about using a drone for a roof inspection for a potential customer. James has been very responsive to my questions and was able to help me quickly understand the process of how the drone would be used, etc. The drone was perfect for the job. James took some amazing aerial photos and videos of the roof. I will use your services again, and recommend your company to others. Thank’s for the help James.

Drone Services FAQ

Is Skykam Drone Services licensed by the CAA?

Yes – As a licensed commercial operator, we are governed by the Civil Aviation Authority.

How much do your services cost?

Every job has its own set of requirements, so we make a custom package for each client. We don’t charge per photo as other companies might – instead it’s priced by the hour and you get full access to all the data or photos captured during that time period!

How long can you fly your drone?

The maximum flight time is 30 minutes, assuming average conditions. However, on average, we replace the battery in our drones after flying for 22 minutes. On shoots, we carry extra batteries. It only takes a few minutes to change the battery and get back in the air.

Can you fly indoors?

Yes – We can fly indoors but we need a large, open indoor space. We may do a test flight and measure if it is eligible.

Can you fly in the wind and rain?

We do not fly in strong winds or rain. We can fly in winds of up to 22 miles per hour. In winds of up to 15 mph, our innovative camera gimbal technology produces exceptionally smooth views.

Our drones can fly in light rain, but rain on the camera lenses can ruin a photo.

What if we have bad weather on the day?

If we have to re-schedule a date because of weather, the booking deposit is transferred to the new date. We monitor the weather forecast 5 days in advance of any shoot. If we both decide to stay with the day and we have bad weather, our pilots will wait on-site.

Can you fly close to people and buildings?

Our CAA approval clearly defines where and how we can fly.

The main operational conditions for a small unmanned aircraft SUA are:
• Maintaining a distance of 50m from people and property not in control of the pilot.
• During take off and landing maintain a distance of 30m from people and property not in control of the pilot.
• Permission of the landowner to take off and land.
• Directly overhead or within a minimum distance of 150m from an open air assembly of over 1000 people.
• Maximum height of 400ft above ground level.
• Maintain visual line of sight of the SUA to a maximum distance of 500m.
• During daylight hours, so that you can clearly see the SUA and take avoiding action from other air users if required.
• Outside of controlled airspace.
• Restrictions apply to certain areas of Central London and additional permissions to fly in these areas need to be sought from the CAA.
• Restrictions and rules apply to flying near an airport and aerodrome.

How precise can you fly?

Our autopilot software allows us to fly very precise predetermined flight patterns for specific commercial applications.

Can I see the live video feed during a shoot?

You can see anything that is being filmed, we receive a live feed from the drone. We even have VR headsets you can wear while we fly.

Do you cover more than Edinburgh?

Yes, we provide more than drone services in Edinburgh. We also cover the whole of Scotland including Dundee, Aberdeen, Perth, Inverness, Glasgow, London, Arbroath, manchester, stirling, st andrews, Newcastle and Montrose.
