Thinking of integrating drones into your business, then read our 5 step guide to choosing the right drone for your business.
1) Your business requirement
First and foremost, you need to choose the drone that best meets your business requirements. So identify what you want to use your drone for, do you want to survey land, deliver to customers or fly your drone over water? Once you’ve identified the uses you’ll put your drone to, you’ll need to identify the features which will best help you meet these business requirements and goals. Do you need a camera that provides a 360° view for instance? Next you need to identify the models which have these features and if there are several drones available – think about which one will be the easiest for you to use. How do you prefer to operate it from a tablet or by a joystick? Which are you most comfortable using? Also, check out the civil aviation authority website for essential information for using drones for commercial use.
2) Weather conditions in your area
Another factor to consider when choosing a drone for your business is to take into account the weather conditions in the area your drone will be operating and the stability of specific drones in these conditions – like high winds for example. All drones have a maximum wind speed at which they can operate at, whilst maintaining a safe and steady flight. You don’t want unsteady footage or delivery to be dropped. You’ll need to weigh up if you require a more robust model that can withstand harsh weather conditions. Generally speaking, the more rotors a drone has, the more stable it is.
If drones have already been embraced in your industry, it might help you to consider the models of drones being used by your industry partners and how well they are serving their business requirements.
3) Battery life
Crucial to your choice is the battery life of the various drones you’re considering. Think about the length of the average journey you want your drones to undertake and if the battery life of the models you’re looking at will be able to fulfil these requirements.
4) Flight times
In addition to the length of flight your chosen drone can undertake, you’ll need to consider the time the flights will take too. Are flight times crucial to your business operation? If so, then looking at lighter models is a must for your business, as they’ll tend to have quicker flight times.
5) Ease of upgrades
Another factor to consider when choosing a drone for your business, is not only the features your chosen drones currently has (like the most up-to-date camera available), but also the ease and possibility of upgrading key features as technology progresses.
