FAQs

JUST CHECK OUT ALL OF THE SERVICE LISTS BELOW TO GET A GENERAL IDEA OF WHAT WE ARE CAPABLE OF DELIVERING.
Aerial Photography/Filming

Do you have a CAA PfCO?

Yes, we have BNUC-s certification and a CAA Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO).

Are there any restrictions?

Our PfCO allows us to operate within a 50m radius of the general public.

Do you have Public Liability Insurance?

Yes, we have £1 million cover which can be increased to £5 million as reqired.

What aircraft do you use?

We currently fly a number of different DJI quadcopters, including the Inspire, the Phantom 4 and the Spark. The range of aircraft allow us to film in a variety of locations and situations. We use a number of class leading control applications which allow us to set-up repeatable flight paths and complex camera control manoeuvers. As the company grows and as projects demand, we will invest in whatever technology we feel is needed to offer the highest quality service and end product.

What are your flight times.

We can fly for approximately 15 minutes at a time before we need to change the battery. We also have a limit to the amount of time in each hour that the Pilot in Command can fly.

What cameras do you use?

We have both the DJI X3 and X5 integrated camera/gimbals. The X5 is equivalent to highly regarded the Panasonic Lumix GH4. It can shoot high resolution still images and 4K high definition video. We have a range of high quality lenses to cover most filming requirements. In addition, we can also mount our 360º cameras to the Inspire.

How high can you fly?

We are permitted to fly up to 400ft (120m) from our take-off point.

How far can you fly?

We are permitted to fly up to 500m horizontally, within line of sight, from our take-off point.

Can you fly over water?

Yes, we can fly over water, but due to the obvious risks to equipment this does attract a higher rate than flying over land.

What weather conditions can you fly in?

Due the the sensitive nature of the electronics in our equipment, we can’t fly in the rain. High wind conditions can also be an issue. We do however regularly monitor weather forecasts in the days leading up to a project and keep clients updated. If a project isn’t date specific, it’s usually best to plan with alternate dates in mind should the weather not co-operate.

Can we see a live image from the camera?

Yes, we have a live HD downlink from the camera which can be viewed on an iPad or an HD screen.

How do we go about commissioning you?

You can either contact us via the form at the bottom of this page or by telephone. We can then discuss your requirements and the proposed location.

Is there much planning involved?

The answer to this depends on the location of your proposed shoot. There are more safety issues to be aware of in urban environments and the local council, highways agency, police or other third parties may have to be informed and permissions requested. We also need to check the location for proximity to local airports, aerodromes or other airspace users. Projects in rural areas can be much more straightforward with only landowner permission required for take-off and landing. We are however happy to discuss any project and help advise on viability.
