Re: Drone for rigging inspections
I agree that it might make more sense to climb the mast and have a look, but the OP doesn't seem to want to do that, and drones are problematic in this scenario. Hoisting a webcam up the mast on a rolling carriage would provide views that might be useful. If you don't like the idea, don't use it.
For the price of a decent drone and camera arrangement one could hire a rigger a few years in a row (probably longer than the drone would last) and have the job done properly.
