What if I have any more questions?

We like more questions, so feel free to contact us!

What wind and weather can a UAV fly in?

Our UAVs have very good range of weather capabilities. Winds up to 40mph have been flown in, but the more significant factor is turbulence. A gusty, turbulent 25 mph wind is more troublesome than a 35 mph headwind.  The steady wind can be prepared for, the turbulent wind not so especially on take off or landing. As a good measure, our UAVs can manage much stronger winds and worse weather than you would ever want to do photography in.

Is thermal the same as IR?

When we refer to IR it generally means near IR (NIR).  This is the range (700nnm to 1000nm) visible to a standard camera CCD and the range that can sense vegetation stress.  Thermal, which can recognise body heat, works in much higher ranges and requires special (and more expensive) cameras.

What is the difference between the terms UAV and UAS?

A UAV is an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle - simply the aircraft that flies around the sky.  A UAS is an Unmanned Aerial SYSTEM, a much larger entity that includes the ground control system, the maintenance tools, the skills involved in operating the system  - all the hardware, software and human interaction required to operate the UAV.
