  1. Hello, Received my license and looking into how to bring drone work into our existing pipeline and well casing corrosion prevention business in the Permian Basin of West Texas (yeah, it's quite around here right now). Much of my career has been with GIS (GISP certified) and have been in the oilfield now for 8 years. Just starting to evaluate the market and looking for a niche to fill. Thanks UAV Coach for the great training!
  2. Howdy, I'm just now looking into drones as a way to do inspections on wind turbines and use lidar capabilities in the oil and gas piping industry. Currently we use a Faro 3D scanner to get a point cloud in Scene and use the point cloud in cadworx to make models that are accurate to the environment. I was wondering has anyone used the lidar capabilities on drones to make point clouds for modeling? Are the tolerances good? Also has anyone here used drones to do wind turbine inspections? What would you charge per turbine? I'm looking into all of this as a possible avenue for the company I work for to get into currently our niche is oil and gas piping. We have done some structural inspections and incident reports as well I think a drone would be good for us to do information gathering and help us when we do project proposals. Your thoughts on this? Cheers, Jonathan Harder
