Solar PV O&M Flight Guidelines

Operations and Maintenance flight guidelines to meet data requirements.



Note: Do NOT fly within 2 hours of sunrise or sunset.

The O&M Data Requirements can be met with various drones, camera payloads, and flight mission planning software.

The most popular drone platforms that support thermal cameras are the DJI M200, M300 series, and the DJI Mavic 2 Enterprise 

The most popular camera payloads are the DJI FLIR Zenmuse XT2, DJI H20T, FLIR Duo Pro R, and DJI FLIR Zenmuse XT.

The most popular flight mission planning software are DJI Ground Station Pro (GS Pro) or DJI Pilot

The easiest and fastest inspection that meet the requirements typically use payloads that image both thermal and visible spectrum at the same time such as the XT2, H20T, and Duo Pro R.
