From The Beginning

We are there to help you better understand how our drone systems operate and what can be achieved using our aerial filming and photography platforms. From your first phone call, we will begin to collaborate with you to understand your film and photography requirements, choosing the best suited camera and drone for the project. Aerial plans and strategies can then be formed to best assess how the drones can be used to film, photograph, map or survey your project.

World-Class Cameras & Drones

Our drones are built using the world's most trusted equipment and industry-leading onboard intelligent flight controllers. Clients have a wide choice of cameras and technologies at their disposal. Filming up to CinemaDNG 5.2K RAW and 21MP RAW photos. The drones can also be used for Live TV, with a HD link and extremely low latency. The drones can remain airborne for up to thirty minutes and we always carry enough batteries to fulfil the aerial task, combined with rapid drone charging facilities.

Safety, Certification & Planning

We strive to be as safe as possible and this is achieved through our thorough preparation and safety procedures. Each drone is meticulously constructed on site and thorough pre-flight checks take place. We adhere to strict method statements, which are tailored to each individual task.
