VERSATILE DRONES

We operate a fleet of remote-controlled multi-rotor aerial filming drones each with state-of-the art camera stabilization systems. Whilst our s900 hexocopter is ideal for dynamic, high-end aerial cinematography, our Inspire 1 provides total creative control and mobility plus put to 4k RAW recording. Meanwhile, our Phantom 4 quadcopter is perfect when a more nimble and cost-effective filming solution is needed.

QUALITY CAMERAS

Aerial imagery is only as good as the camera and lens used which is why we offer a range of high quality cameras including the Sony A7SII, and DJI X5R cameras, both with a wide choice of prime lenses. We use digital HD video transmitters and receivers with a low latency range of up to 1.7km allowing Directors and other crew to watch and direct shots in real-time.

STABLE IMAGERY

Pixel perfect stability and fluid motion control is extremely important for any production. Our drones use state-of-the-art gimbals to achieve stunning aerial shots that don’t require expensive fixing in post-production. These can rapidly transform into handheld steady rigs for ground-based filming if required. All our drone and camera equipment pack down into just a handful of Peli cases for easy transport across the UK and worldwide.
