Hello, I wanted to say hi and explain how useful my drone has been for my business. I have a chimney repair service and have used ladders for years to inspect a customer's chimney and then explain to the customer what needs to be done. I now use the drone to fly around the chimney and video the issues associated with repair. Customers appreciate it a lot more when they are able to see what's going on...and usually results in a sale :)

all households....many times, customers don't believe me when I tell them that water is getting down between the flue and brickwork....or the brick needs to be repointed badly. When I show them closeups of their problems, they are usually quite satisfied to hire me.

Bit of humor for you. I figured that I would take a few shots of the roof of my house for an ad. Got the aircraft up over the roof and spotted a dark spot on a shingle, yup, damaged shingle and then noticed a crack in the cement cap on the chimney. Yup, Rodger's roof and chimney needed repair. Repairs complete before any serous damage.

That's a great use! I'm curious if you have confidence in your current drone to where you could perform one of your paid services (where you would have had to otherwise go on a roof) with only your drone? Or are we not there yet? What would it take?
