Drones on projects

Anyone using a drone for their project?

The photography side of it would be a no brainer.

Current environment of commercial use is too risky for us.

We have a survey/scanning division for that.  They handle point cloud scanning from stationary and vehicle-borne laser scanners, as well as drone-based scanning.  They've acquired a full commercial operating license so they can go pretty much anywhere.
If you are going to fly by the seat of your pants, expect friction burns.

Very cool.

I wonder how long it will be until we see google drones flying by. :)

Not for a LONGGGGG time, the privacy implications will throw millions into a frenzy.

I understand the Drones with privacy but what about "scanners" in general?
