Flare inspection via drone is much more cost effective and efficient than typical flare inspections. Removing the human from the equation always helps to reduce risk and cost – and where that can be applied to extreme or complex situations, the savings are much more substantial. This is the case with drone flare inspections.
Reducing Cost and Risk with Drone Inspections
Unlike humans, a drone can reach the height of the flare in under a minute. A live video feed allows the inspector to monitor progress in real time and carry out the required inspections without taking a foot off the ground so there’s much less hassle for everyone involved.
Real Time Kinematics (RTK) allow for accurate and precise recording throughout the inspection. The data and information uncovered in the initial inspection can then be used to more effectively plan future shutdowns, further saving money and time while reducing risk and unnecessary downtime.
And as the entire inspection is carried out by a UAV, the risks are minimal. Even so, a complete risk assessment and job analysis is completed prior to each flight to ensure the safety of everyone involved with the job and to ensure the drone flare inspection goes exactly as planned.

Real estate videos are becoming the new standard for prestigious real estate companies in Brisbane and across Australia. Luxury properties deserve more than standard photography and, let’s face it, potential buyers want to be blown away by a real estate listing. Using real estate videos in your marketing and property showcasing is the best way to do properties justice and blow away potential buyers – not to mention set yourself apart from your competitors.
Use Featured Videos to Enhance Marketing
Standard photos of a property may work well to highlight one or two particular features, but drone videography allows you to capture the entirety of a property in one swooping, high resolution video. With 360 degree cameras, nothing is out of sight and, since its mounted on a drone, nothing is out of reach either!
From architectural features to swimming pools to landscape gardens – all can be captured on an entrancing drone video that will fill prospective buyers with awe. Real estate videography isn’t limited to the outdoors either – the 360 degree camera is perfect for spanning rooms whose size or drama simply can’t be captured with photos from various angles.
Drones are the best thing to happen to real estate marketing for a long time. They are revolutionising the real estate industry and, although usage is increasing, there is still a big opportunity for real estate companies to take advantage of drone videography and photography for their marketing.
Specialist Real Estate Videography
At Droneworxs we’ve been working with high end real estate companies in Brisbane for years. Our drones have been used to market a wide variety of luxurious properties and the results speak for themselves – go and take a look on our Featured Works page. With our years of experience, we’re ideally placed to help you bring the best of a property to life with stunning videos and imagery.

Reducing costs is always a key factor for businesses to consider and for those in industries such as insurance, construction, mining and surveying, industrial aerial drones offer significant cost savings that, to be blunt, cannot be ignored! We’re going to show you how using drones in your business will improve efficiency and productivity, reduce costs and reduce risks to human life.
What Industrial Drones Are Used For
Industrial aerial drones can be used for a multitude of applications, often removing the need for human intervention at all, beyond controlling the drone. Any situation where human life is put in a potentially risky situation, such as on a mining site, there are financial obligations. Whereas if you can use a drone instead, that obligation – and cost – is removed. Here are some of the common ways in which aerial industrial drones are used instead of humans:
Land surveying – surveying land is timely and costly; you need people on site and the assistance of an aerial vehicle to get a complete overview. An industrial drone can take care of both of these requirements quickly and safely – and more importantly, for a reduced cost.
Insurance purposes – insurance companies need to be able to accurately evaluate the condition of a building in order to provide an accurate price for cover, or settlement. Aerial drones can be used to get a full picture of the building and there’s no need to get other specialists, such as roofers, on site. They can simply analyse the footage.
Construction – drones provide a quick and easy way to get an overview of building progress and can help with identifying any issues without putting workers at risk.
When you consider how drones can be used instead of people in these situations, it makes sense to take advantage of their cost and time savings.

UAVs (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or drones are they are commonly known, have been around for quite a few years not but there are still companies that are unaware of the potentials that drones could offer their business.
Here are 4 ways that companies large and small in different industries can use UAVs to improve their business or marketing.
Photography is usually the first thing that people think of when drones are mentioned. Drones can capture stunning aerial views of property, landscapes, terrains and much more that simply can’t be captured on the ground, and with difficulty by other forms of aerial photography.
The 360 degree view and panoramic views of commercial UAVs offers a huge opportunity for companies to show off their property. Be it an insight into the company office or a showcase of leisure facilities, interior tours are a great way to show off the personal side of your business or the luxury that you provide.
Businesses in all sorts of industries need to carry out inspections of some kind. Everyone from insurance, construction, real estate, landlords, security and mining companies can use drones in their everyday work to significantly improve efficiency, productivity and speed while mitigating security risks and lowering costs too.
Security is vital for many businesses and those that have a large area to patrol and protect can benefit from commercial UAV for many reasons, mainly the ability to quickly get a visual scan of an area. This could be used for routine checks as well as investigating unknown activity. It lets you get a clear picture of the situation fast, without risking any life.

Drones are revolutionising the aerial mapping industry with their ability to accurately capture a huge amount of data efficiently and with ease. Rather than having to rely on aircraft, UAVs provide a portable, manoeuvrable alternative that is not only cheaper but provides higher resolution photography too.
So, how does mapping with drones work?
How Drone Mapping Works
Drones use a technique called photogrammetry to take measurements from photographs. Throughout the flight – the path of which is pre-programmed to ensure complete coverage of the required area – the drone takes a photograph every few seconds. When all the photos have been taken, the mapping software automatically stitches them all together, creating a complete map of the area.
These measurements are highly accurate and so can be reliably transferred to the blueprint of a building, for example. Aerial mapping allows you to survey a specific area or landscape and produce a complex map, from which we can take measurements, calculate volumes and create models for use in architecture, surveying, mining and many other industries.
Other Benefits to Drone Mapping
In addition to the processing of complex data, mapping with drones has other practical benefits. There is practically no manual labour involved so the mapping is faster and safer. UAVs also fly under the cloud barrier, so the weather doesn’t have to be perfect to get a high quality result.
If you’re looking for a professional drone company in Brisbane that has plenty of experience under their belts, get in touch with Droneworxs. We have worked with a wide number of clients to produce a diverse collection of maps and 3D models, a sample of which you can view on our What We Do page.

When commercial UAVs were first invented, there was no foretelling of the massive impact they would have on all the industries they have: real estate, insurance, surveying, architecture, construction, small shipments and mining to name but a few.
So what does the future of commercial UAVs have in store?
Where Drones Will Have the Biggest Impact
It’s expected that commercial UAVs will grow in three main areas: shipments, surveillance and commercial.
Drones are already used to carry small parcels and shipments; Amazon famously announced (pun unintended!) their Prime Air scheme a couple of years ago. It may be out of the ordinary now, but in a few years shipments by drone will be much more common. There are numerous benefits to using drones for shipments, including environmental considerations, efficiency, safety, cost savings and convenience.
Commercial drones are different from conventional drones because they are used for more than leisure. Commercial UAVs must be lighter, airborne for longer and much better equipped than recreational drones. The entire market of UAVs, and businesses that will use them to provide a variety of services, will grow exponentially over the next 5 years.
Governments and security agencies are always looking for ways to improve surveillance. Drones offer great capabilities for security, making patrols and surveillance much faster and safer. Investigating difficult to navigate terrains and hard to reach areas is much easier with a UAV. It’s no surprise then that governments across the world will be making bigger investments in drones and their technology to bolster their surveillance regime in the years to come.
Riding the Revolution
At Droneworxs we pride ourselves on innovation; we’re at the forefront of the drone revolution with the latest equipment and technologies to provide an ever increasing and improving range of services. There is no doubt that commercial UAVs will break into more industries than the big trendsetters above in the coming years, and we’ll be there to add them to our growing list of commercial UAV services.

UAV mapping is the use of a UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) or drone as they’re more commonly known, to map a small area and collect highly detailed data. The advantages of using drones over traditional aerial imagery are numerous, some of which we’ll look at in this article. Find out what you need to know about UAV mapping here.
The Benefits of UAV Mapping
There are several benefits of using UAVs for mapping over other forms:
Timing – Where time is of the essence, UAV mapping provides the ability to quickly and easily collect the data of a small area, enabling a much faster and more informed decision making process. In addition, the one-manned operation of a UAV makes mapping more efficient, as controllers can quickly be dispatched to the area where they’re needed.
Data accuracy – drones for mapping are equipped with technology including RTK and collect accurate data that can be used for calculating volumes, distances and grades, in addition to creating reports and other data analysis as required.
Portability – drones are compact and easily transported, making it easy to get them close to the area that needs to be mapped.
Data processing – the data collecting during UAV mapping can be quickly and automatically processed, allowing for faster data consumption and ultimately, an end product delivery in a short amount of time.
Weather conditions – UAVs operate below cloud level so their use is much less dependant on weather conditions than other forms of aerial mapping.

Drone asset inspections are fast providing a way for utilities to improve efficiency and reduce costs. In Brisbane and across Australia and even the world, the improvements that drones bring to the asset inspection process are being realised and embraced.
How Drones Benefit the Asset Inspection Process
Regular asset inspections are crucial to monitor and maintain the normal function of infrastructures, equipment and other assets that are a vital part of a company’s day to day business.
Traditionally, asset inspections were time consuming and labour intensive. The man hours required to carry out the inspection, collect and collate the data and then make decisions based on that data were many. With the introduction of drones though, those hours can be significantly reduced – largely thanks to the capabilities of the drone to quickly and easily survey large areas, collect highly accurate data and provide real-time imagery, amongst other factors.
To carry out a drone asset inspection, all that is required is the pilot and the required people to visually monitor the inspection. Areas of interest or concern can then be inspected more closely in the inspection, allowing for more complete data gathering and analysis.
In addition to faster inspection and data gathering, using drones for asset inspections greatly reduces the risk to human life as there is much less need to be involved in the hands on side of the inspection.
Companies that have found success with drone asset inspections include Melbourne Water, who ran a trial and were very impressed with the results.

It can be notoriously difficult to inspect your roof, especially if it is particularly steep, difficult to access or potentially unsafe. In the past, the only way to get a decent inspection of your roof would be to call out a roofing contractor but now, drones are giving people to conduct their own inspections, removing the need to call a roofer first, or even at all.
The concept is simple: drones can get a good aerial view of your roof to identify any potential areas for concern or highlight any damage. It can even get a good close-up look at those areas, so you can get a much better understanding of the situation. With that knowledge you can then consult a roofing contractor or even carry out the work yourself.
An Overview of a Drone Roof Inspection
At Droneworxs our drones are available to hire for all types of roof inspections. You don’t need to be a business; we will happily come and help homeowners too! Here’s a general idea of how a drone roof inspection works:
Have a look at your roof from the ground first. You don’t need us for this bit, though any information you can get will help focus the roof inspection process. Look for any areas of sagging, damage or ageing. Keep an eye out for worn or broken features too like drainpipes or loose tiles.
Use the drone to get a good aerial view of the roof. Specifically, look for any areas with moss, algae or piles of leaves – as these can often cause damage and leaks. You’re also looking for damaged or curled tiles, which can lead to bigger problems if not sorted.
Check the condition of your roof overhangs, drainpipes and any other roof features like chimneys. Again you’re looking for signs of damage, aging and wear & tear.
If there is any additional weatherproofing on your roof, such as counter flashing, inspect it. It’s in these close up areas where drone roof inspections really come into their own, as
this can be quite tricky and risky if you were to have to get on the roof and do it yourself.
Reduce Cost & Hassle with Drone Roof Inspections
If there are any problem areas or damage identified from the drone roof inspection, you can use the footage and photos from the drone to show to a roofing contractor, who will then be able to give you a much better idea of the scope of the work and price. The best part is that you can go to several different roofers with the photos – so there’s no need to arrange a roof inspection from several different companies.
