You’re looking for rust, faded and /or flaking paint (if applicable), lines which have come loose in spots, missing hardware, ice damage.  Looks like this was your STL tower and I’d say it’s in pretty good shape.  The video is good enough, and individual pictures would only be helpful to document suspected problem areas.  Wish I had something like this a couple years ago when I had an antenna that suffered ice damage.  It appeared a bit off from the ground but looking straight up the bays were still in alignment.

I've recently gotten my commercial drone license and am looking at doing some tower inspections.  I would appreciation your input if possible.  What are you looking for in a tower inspection?  How do you feel a drone could be used in this application? 

I took a video of a tower at the facility I currently work at.  It is here:  https://youtu.be/qrE9nPIQrjs.  How could the video be more helpful?  Would you prefer still pictures or a combination of both?

Thanks for your input.  It's greatly appreciated.
