OCL are a photographic imagery company specialising in aerial survey, video and still imagery production using a variety of airborne platforms. Drone surveys are a faster, safer and more cost-efficient way to survey at height. Oscar Cymru are experienced in roof, building and site inspections, where drones are fast becoming the sensible choice for engineers as they offer great advantages in safety and speed of access. Oscar Cymru are at the forefront of drone surveying in the UK, we use Yuneec Typhoon H, H520 and Yuneec Phantom drones – industry-leading drones with advanced mapping software functionality used by thousands of professionals around the world.
In addition to building inspections, drone surveys are now established as a valuable approach to transmission tower and powerline surveying. By eliminating manual ‘at-height’ working, they greatly reduce risk and improve safety outcomes. Drones can be deployed rapidly and allow asset managers to interrogate defects using ultra high-definition 4k imaging. Our drones frequently provide fresh data on previously difficult to see areas; helping our customers to make quicker, assured decisions. Our drones can capture high definition video footage which provide a view from above without the cost of hiring a plane or helicopter. Drone surveys are also more affordable, quicker and pose fewer health and safety risks than setting up scaffolding and access platforms. We use specialist tools like PIX4D to create stunning 3D models of your site, building or other location.
Using techniques we have developed over a number of years we are able to photograph and video sports as diverse as Surfing, Golf, Sailing, White-Water sports and Equestrian events; all require specialist knowledge of the subject, the sport and the environment and how they all interact. As well as using our drone platforms to capture imagery of sporting events, we often are asked to photograph difficult and restricted access areas that would normally require scaffolding or other Health and Safety compliant access methods.
Our fleet of 3 of Yuneec 6 blade drones range from a Typhoon H through to a H520 and Phantom 920 are all fitted with HiDef 4K or Thermal Imaging cameras and dependant on the mission we either fly single-crew (solo) or for more complex and intricate work we run 2 crew operation where the PIC flies the drone whilst the camera operator captures the imagery. All of our pilots, as well as being CAA approved and holders of PfCO certificates, are also current PPL and CPL holders with thousands of hours commercial and pleasure flying experience.
