THE MULTI-ROTORS

Our multi-rotors are sophisticated and extremely well engineered Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) that uses the worlds best stabilisation gimbals, enabling us to capture smooth and stunning aerial cinematography. Our specially designed drones operates at low noise levels and is capable of flying at 30-55mph at altitudes up to 120 metres (400 feet). Although the drones has a much wider range, these restrictions have been but in place by the IAA. Unlike traditional helicopters or fixed wing aircraft we are able to get within metres of the action giving a unique vantage point. Coupled with our specially designed camera systems we are capable of capturing the highest resolution still and motion video images to meet all your aerial needs. We can record up to 5.2K raw filming at a bitrate of 2GB in a DNG codec. Using the latest LiPo batteries, our drone can fly for 10-22mins on a single charge which gives more than enough time to capture the footage before returning to base for a new battery.
