Cappie do you never see the Great Whites filming over Seal island etc?

I've only filmed over seal island once and i was pretty stressed as it is far out but i am planning on flying there a lot in the future. Will look out for sharks, whales etc.

I monitor the Eskom Tender Bulletins, they were investigating using Drones instead of Helicopters to monitor Powerline condition, they are now looking for someone to set up a facility to test the drones. I am guessing that they don't want to use the Drones and find out that the magnetic fields around the Powerlines screws up the control or directional systems on the drones?  :biggrin:

It probably will mess with the drone.  Depending how far you need to fly from the cables.

It seems something like the DJI Matrice M200 will be the answer.  It uses a Real Time Kinematics (RTK) positioning system which it seems is not affected by electrical interference.

Quoted elsewhere:

This drone is not cheap the Matrice 200 price is expected to be double that of the $4,999 Matrice 600 Pro
And I think that price also depends on the camera you choose to go with it.

Are those drones petrol powered? Surely big batteries to run that would weigh it down drastically??

The Matrice as far as I know is battery powered, but its motors and props are big enough to manage the weight.  Operating time stays limited though/

There is another thread where people are discussing the use of larger drones to assist in stringing overhead power lines.  They mention drones that have an on board petrol engine which charges the batteries on the go:
