Got a Question?
Can you fly in the rain or snow?

In short, no. We cannot fly in the rain or snow or another type of precipitation. But we closely monitor the weather leading up to a shoot for safe flying conditions.

What is your flying range?

We are permitted to fly up to 500m from the our lead pilot, as long as we can maintain a visual line of site with the UAV/Drone. This means we can operate in up to a 1km radius if all other parameters have been met. We can also fly up to 400 foot.

Can you fly above water?

Yes we can operate above water. Our equipment is not waterproof, but we can fly above it.

How many people operate the drone?

The UAV/Drone can be operated with only one person. However, two people are often needed for anything other than simple maneuvers. One reason for this is so that we can safely operate the drone and accurately position the camera at the same time, as well as fulfilling all of our health and safety obligations.

Do you dry hire out your equipment?

We do not dry hire our equipment. The main reason is because we are always using it.

How long can you fly for?

Flying times depend on many things such as weather, speed of manuever, the weight of the camera, and the size of the battery. But in optimum conditions we have flown up to 19 minutes in a single flight.
