  1. Hi,

    I run a solar company in Toronto. We have a couple of projects coming up in Toms River, NJ.
    Before we install solar, we need to assess the roof in detail.

    I was wondering if you are able to do this with a drone and camera and get accurate data pertaining to the location and size of the obstructions on the roof?
    If so, is this type of service something you might be able to offer me, or can you connect me with a drone pilot who could offer this?

    Any information would be greatly appreciated.

    Best regards,

    Eddie O

  2. I would beware of NJDrone school – In my opinion he has a very short fuse and screamed at my son who is 9 years old and a very mild mannered kid. I left a bad review regarding his lack of professionalism when our sons drone was faulty. Instead of working with us – He had us come in and then screamed at us over the issue. Which did NOT have to happen. NJ Drone is a scammer – He took hundreds of dollars for us and then screamed. BEWARE!
    We took lessons, sold us software that we and bought a drone that he later told us – My son was too young for. Obviously just out to make a quick buck on the fad of drones – Not a professional and a VERY SHORT TEMPER!

    1. To hanna,
      PLEASE correct your review I think you mean NJ Drone Academy , NOT NJ Drone School, I did not have your son as a student . I’m the owner of NJ Drone School and this never happened in my school. So please correct this oversight in the name of the school your refering to. I can tell you that I have had students from that other school come to me and complain about the same thing. So please clarify and update your review.
