Hi Andrew!

Right! The company is specialized in maintaining the blades on "windmills" ;)
They used drones for a while - but that´s impracticable in windy situations and not hires enough.

So they ordered a couple of Panoneeds - after checking Dr. Clauss and Seitz VR2.
They use the T&C touch-control and laptops for controlling the head with Canon 5DIII and a
Canon 800mm lens.

The idea was to provide to their field-engineers a "turnkey", nearly automated solution without the need for an intense training and photographical skills . . . so after about 30 minutes anybody can handle it successfully.

The immense weight of the about 10000.-€ lens is no problem for the head and it´s precision is by far precisely enough, the xml-data help to position the images quickly and almost automatically.

So they can clearly identify marks on the blades of about 1mm size.

They save very much money by not needing "industrial climbers" - which they needed for years for close-checking
of the blades.

Really clever concept i mean - using a real clever designed device. Josef added additional brakes hor./vert. for
keeping the setup steady even in VERY windy situations (the 800 lens is very big and catches a lot of wind).

best, Klaus
