We use leading edge technology – a radio-controlled Hexacopter equipped with professional photography and video recording equipment, allowing us to offer aerial photography and video services for broadcast, commercial and private needs. The Hexacopter is operated by a qualified pilot with the aid of a sophisticated flight control system and GPS.
We are currently operating under a standard CAA permission for aerial work which means we can fly up to 500m from the pilot horizontally and 120m vertically. It is possible to get exemptions to fly further and higher but it may incur extra cost and can take up to 3 weeks to organise. Generally the limits are more than sufficient for the majority of projects.
Flight times are typically around 10-15 minutes per battery set. This may seem short, but with good planning, a lot can be achieved and we carry plenty of batteries.
No – the copters electrical components have limited protection from precipitation, so we do not fly in the rain. We can fly in winds of upto 18mph. The best video footage and photography is always obtained in fair weather.
Yes we have insurance for our machines and cameras and £5 million public liability insurance for flight operations in the UK.
Yes, all our pilots are either qualified through the RPQ-s or BNUC-s, CAA approved courses.
