The Early Days — Warranty Inspections
Roger’s-O’Brien first started using drones because they saw them as a faster, safer and more cost-effective way of performing warranty inspections.
Before drones, “We had two options, a man lift and a swing stage. The man lift would cost $3,500 to rent one and get it on site in two days. Flying a drone is safer option, and it’s cheaper and faster. We’re able to capture the data right there, process it that day and have it in hand,” said Jesse.
