DRONE RENTALS

~Renting & Hiring Fixed Wing Drones Since 2013~

Rent from just £23 per day*

 

QuestUAV has been hiring drone systems and sensors to a UK only market since 2013.  However, for selected customers,  it is now expanding its rentals to include Europe and the United States.

QuestUAV drones are fixed wing drones.  Fixed wing drones complement multirotor drones for a surveyor that needs a range of capability.  Multirotors (eg DJI Phantom) have been available for hire for some time throughout UK and the rest of the world.  However multirotors have limitations and Ha coverage is the greatest limitation. Surveyors and Mappers have become increasingly aware that fixed wing drones are more efficient and can cover a larger area in a much shorter span of time.    

With weekly, monthly or yearly hire available for fixed wing, the cost and potential of conducting a larger survey has just become more manageable.

We also offer lease-purchase on some models.  

What we require of you is simply to look after the drone system, do what training is necessary, operate it safely and legally, and return it in good condition. In the event of damage or accident we have rapid repair facilities or replacement drone options. Remember, we have been doing this for years.... we know how to overcome the problems and pitfalls of drone hire.  Choose your rental company carefully!

What do I need to rent from QuestUAV?

For UK rentals you will need copy of your insurance, proof of PFCO, proof of business address and photo ID.

For foreign rentals we will be looking to see what Drone operating qualifications you have for your country, and what your countries legislation requires for Drone operations.

Do I need Training?

Only if you haven't operated a fixed wing drone before.  QuestUAV offers a comprehensive training facility both in UK and abroad. 

For UK Operators, QuestUAV has the capability to upgrade Mutirotor PFCO holders to fixed wing PFCO.

Do I need a permission for commercial operation (PFCO) to rent equipment?

For UK operations, yes.

Don't forget that QuestUAV can provide qualified pilots to run your mission. 

 

Am I able to purchase equipment after a rental period?

Yes.  If you would like to purchase your equipment after a rental period, you can do so at a discounted rate.  The longer the rental duration the greater the discount. 

How soon can I get my equipment?

For UK rentals, once your order is accepted, the system will be checked, itemised and then couriered for next day delivery. 

For rentals abroad, the process may be longer if it requires export regulations. 

Do I have to pay to return the equipment?

No, for UK rentals. This is included in the price. We will arrange our courier to come and pick it up!

For foreign rentals, you will be responsible for shipping costs.
