Drones can be used in construction for many purposes. This video addresses the setup, safety, and basic use case for drones on a construction site.
- Howdy and welcome again up here…at the rooftop drone deck…at JB Knowledge Headquarters.…I actually had this bad boy installed…so I'd have a soft place to land up on the roof…here at JB Knowledge.…Now before you fly your first drone,…please, there's a bunch of rules you have to follow.…So let's go to knowbeforeyoufly.org.…That's the website the FAA set up…that gives you rules and regulations.…It also means if you're going to fly this commercially…and not recreationally as a hobby,…you've got to get a part 107 license.…I'm not going to run you through all the details…on the 107 license…but you can get more information again at…knowbeforeyoufly.org.…
Make sure that you're in an open clear space…that you're going to be able to see your drone line of sight.…Also, you need to be clearly identified.…Now my good friends at Skycatch…actually sent this drone vest to me.…You can see it says "Drone Pilot".…Because when you're on a job site…and I've flown on job sites,…people really look at you strangely…if they don't understand what you're up to…
