How Drones Can Become Temporary Towers?

The drone has become one of the most popular unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) in the last few years due to its affordability and ease of use. These drones not only act as remote-controlled aircraft but also as cameras, sensors, waypoints, and much more. It’s widely used for inspecting power lines, reservoirs, refineries, or construction sites. Drones are also used to inspect tall buildings from a bird’s eye view. They can be easily autonomous and controlled by any individual at home or office making them a perfect fit for all purposes. The drone can be operated several feet above ground level at a site where it is difficult to set up temporary tower cranes or scaffolding for maintenance work.


In this blog post we will explore how drones can become temporary towers and how they can assist with many maintenance tasks around your home, workplace or other structures that have limited access due to restricted space, high winds, etc. The most common use case of using drones as a temporary tower is to inspect inaccessible areas such as roofs of houses etc without causing any damage to the building’s exterior or interior walls. So let us understand this concept in detail via examples:

How drones can become temporary towers?

Drones can be used to support temporary scaffolds, towers, and cranes by becoming temporary towers. This is done by the drone’s integrated camera which can take videos or pictures of the area to be inspected. The drone, which is being operated at a safe height above ground level and away from any hazards, provides an inspection point that reduces the risk of injury or damage while still providing a 360-degree view of the site. The ability to control the position of the drone at heights without having to use a crane will allow you to do all kinds of work above ground level like painting, repairing, and replacing roof tiles, etc. One notable example where drones have been used as temporary towers is in construction sites where they are used for inspecting buildings with tall structures such as skyscrapers. In this case, drones provide an aerial perspective allowing them to access areas below and outside of the building reachable by traditional methods.

What is a cell drone?

A cell drone is a type of UAV that has the ability to move autonomously and can carry out certain tasks in an area. The main difference between a cell drone and a regular drone is that these UAVs are designed to be used in confined spaces. They do not require any runway for takeoff and landing due to their size, short flight duration and lack of speed. Cell drones are also equipped with multiple sensors that help them sense the environment around them. It also makes these UAVs easy to deploy anywhere as they are not as heavy as other drones – which usually weigh more than 10 pounds/4 kilos. The most common use case of this type of UAV is to inspect inaccessible areas such as roofs of houses or other buildings without causing any damage to the building’s exterior or interior walls.

Why do drones need 5G?

The drones need 5G for several purposes: 1) It provides the drone with a much faster data transfer speed. 2) Better internet connectivity allows for more precision in communication between the drone and its operator. 3) Higher bandwidth allows the drone to see in greater detail. 4) Faster speeds allow quicker operation of drones, which also helps make them safer. 5) In the future, 5G will help improve the autonomous control of drones as well as their use in search and rescue operations.

Do you need 5G for drones?

No, you don’t need 5G for drones to operate. You need it to connect a drone and a smartphone. A 5G connection can provide 100 times more data than a 4G LTE.

Can drones see through walls?

First, drones are remote-controlled aircraft that are controlled by an individual. This means they cannot see through walls or buildings. They require a clear line of sight to the area they want to inspect and can only travel straight upwards. Nonetheless, the good thing is that with enough video footage you can use software like Adobe After Effects to create a 3D model of your structure and place it on top of the drone’s camera view. This way you can get an accurate representation of what the drone will see from its current position in space.
