The commercial drone industry is taking off, and Drone for Hire founder Thomas Davis wants to use the technology to help business owners, like farmers, work more efficiently.
"It allows farmers to survey large area of land in a very small amount of time," Davis said.
Walking the field to examine the soil could take several days. Davis can capture the images he needs within hours.
"So, it gives them a first good visual of what they're working with, if there are operational issue such as irrigation," Davis said. "Perhaps there's a disease in the crop."
Davis said drones can also help the real estate and recreational industries. For example, golf courses can use an aerial video tour for advertising. Plus, the video can let owners know whether their sprinkler system is working properly.
