Re: Drone for rigging inspections

Whats the flight time of a battery operated drone? The ones I have seen need to have batteries swapped every 10-15 minutes. Futzing around with it seems like a bigger issue than just looking in front of you for coral heads.

Now a PTZ camera at the top of the mast is an intriguing idea. Just get one with a couple hundred foot night vision range and it could be a huge help. The only problem is they weigh in at a couple of pounds.
