How drones and UAVs are already affecting construction jobstites

While liberating them from school, summer vacation also presents children with a challenge: finding something to do all day. For Richard Evans, that was never the case.

On most of those balmy summer days growing up on Merrit Island, Florida, Evans and his older brother found their way to the private airport a half-mile from their house. They’d lie down in the grass and wait, patiently looking to the bright blue sky until a plane would hum into their vision before landing on the runway nearby.

Fast forward to today and Evans, 61, is still watching in wonder as aircraft fly overhead. The only difference now is that he is in control.

Yes and this is a key job that our OB-6 is doing... a lot of land survey and mapping.  All because of the amazing work done here. 

(oh and the other hot current application of my Industrial copter is agriculture monitoring, search and rescue/areial pictures of accidents)
