Drone Services FAQ

  • How long can drones fly for?

    Our drones can fly for approximately 20-30 minutes on average, before needing a battery swap.

  • How far can you fly your drones?

    While our drones are rated for distances of up to 20km, it’s important to note that achieving such distances in real-world scenarios using radio signals is rarely practical. Using 4G/5G networks and/or mesh networks strengthen radio signals making longer distance flights possible. If this is of interest to you please don’t hesitate to reach out!

  • What kind of weather conditions can you fly in?

    The short answer is, it depends. There are many factors to consider when flying drones in less than ideal conditions.

  • What type of sensors can you carry?

    Our standard sensor equipment includes visual spectrum (RGB), infrared, multispectral, and LiDAR. We are equipped to source equipment for other applications if required, such as bathymetric surveys, gas detection, etc.

  • What types of qualification & experience do your pilots have?

    All Stinson Aerial Pilots in Command (PIC) have over 150 hours of flight experience and hold Transport Canada Advanced Licenses.

  • Can you fly with a heavy payload?
