What is a UAV?
UAV stands for “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle”. There are other terms for them such as multi-rotors, UAS (unmanned Aerial Systems), quad-copters, hexacopters, octocopters, and the most common name, a drone.
Why do you use UAV’s for video production?
There are many different reasons why we use UAVS for video production. The main reason is cost. Getting aerial shots and jib shots used to require renting helicopters or very expensive cranes. Our use of UAV’s helps bring the cost of production down while still delivering high production value.
Are you insured?
Yes we are insured for up to $1,000,000 liability. We take extreme care with saftey when flying multi-rotors and make sure that they are only flown in the right conditions.
Can you fly Indoors?
Flying indoors and in tight areas is one of the nicest things about UAV’s. They are capable of being flown in tight spaces helicopters and planes are unable to access. This can be a huge consideration when capturing a view for a particular project.
Can we rent your equipment?
If your production requires aerial video we do not specifically rent out our equipment for you to use. We can provide you with an operator to come on site and shoot your required footage. We have hourly rates as well as day rates. Feel free to contact us to inquire more.
How high can you fly?
UAV’s can be flown extremely high, about to the same level as traditional aircraft. To avoid interference with air traffic, UAV’s may only be flown meeting strict criteria. Wind conditions can also pose a threat at these higher altitudes which is why we only fly certain levels.
