By Naomi Charlton / 23 May 2019

In this video Raptor Maps demonstrates how to use a DJI M210 / M200 drone with a FLIR Zenmuse XT2 / XT thermal camera to inspect a solar farm.

Over the last 12 months Raptor Maps has helped UAV pilots inspect over 500 PV sites, and have found through using Raptor Maps software to inspect photovoltaics (PV) a pilot only needs to use 20% side overlap, saving significant amount of flight time. This video covers from takeoff to landing by setting up flight planning software on an iPad, Cendence, DJI Ground Station Pro and DJI XT Pro App, reviewing many flight parameters and camera settings specific to solar.
