Welcome to the forum, a few question before we could suggest anything.
1) Do you now have, or have you ever flown an RC multi-rotor before?
2) Are you located in the USA?

In several countries, including the USA there are now special certifications or permits you must have to fly commercially.
If you are serious about commercial work, the H520 would probably be the best fit for you. You already found the 520 section. Read some of the reviews and questions other members have posted. The H520 is just getting into the hands of some pilots, so there is not much posted as of yet.

Good for having something to practice with.
You will need to get your FAA part 107 certificate to fly for commercial jobs in the USA. Fact Sheet – Small Unmanned Aircraft Regulations (Part 107)

The H 520 is more geared for commercial work, and offers several camera options. I have the Typhoon H or 480. I choose the Yuneec over the DJI products because everything was included. I did not need a separate display.
The H 520 is not with out its problems. Some have reported motor issues, camera firmware is lacking, and some of the flight modes are not fully implemented. I am sure Yuneec will sort it out in time.
I know it is a lot of reading, but read all the 520 forum post and decide for yourself.
Do not be afraid to ask questions.

I have had my 480 since they came out. Had 2 minor crashes (my fault, **** tree limb). One crash as a result of a firmware glitch. Yuneec fixed it for me.
I love flying it, with the exception of rain, I do not care what the weather is, I fly it. It is amazingly stable in the wind. (520 is suppose to be even better) Battery life probably averages 15 minutes. I have gotten close to 19 but I had to really fly for it. The more wind, the more you maneuver around the less battery time. Both the 480 and the 520 are not fast. They are built to be stable camera platforms not racers.
Only thing holding me from any sort of upgrade is a zoom camera. I almost got a 920 Tornado, but Yuneec pulled the 18X camera for it so I didn't.
THIS IS MY OPINION:
If you want to do inspections, plan on doing most of the analysis post flight. The cameras are high resolution enough to use plenty of digital zoom to clearly see what you are inspecting, but without any reasonable zoom, you are not going to see everything durring flight, least not on the controllers small screen. You will benefit from the use of an observer if flying close to wires and antennas.
I have use my H to inspect fellow Ham radio operators towers, at 50-100 feet up, antenna elements and guy wires are hard to see.
