Spring Cleaning: Keeping your drone airworthy

Spring Cleaning: Keeping your drone airworthy

In order to maintain reliability in our UAS, we need to inspect and update our equipment on a regular basis. After a long winter, or prolonged bad weather, or even just lack of suitable jobs for the drone, it is important to thoroughly run through all of your system and visual checks before firing up the drone for a client mission.
