Hello welcome to our site, we create exciting aerial films and photographs all over the UK using our Hexcopter with a stabilised camera gimbal. We are BNUC-s qualified and fully insured, which means we have approval from the Civil Aviation Authority to perform aerial photography under the terms of our licence. If you employ anyone to do aerial photography with a radio controlled aircraft who is not BNUC-s qualified, then they are doing it outside the law and any liability insurance will be invalid.
We build, maintain and fly our own machines so we fully understand what these machines are capable of and we have the imagination to exploit these capabilities to bring you some amazing photographs and footage for various applications. Weddings, Construction surveying,TV filming, Advertising, Property photography, Golf course fly throughs, Archaeology And a whole lot more, the sky is literally the limit...
Our aerial platform is a hand built 650mm,GPS equipped Hexcopter called Skypic 6. It can fly up to 120m high and out to 500m at 40mph. Because its equiped with GPS we can literally park it in the sky and have a look round, it also has a built in safety feature which means it will return to the launch point and land itself, either with the flick of a switch or if the radio signal is lost.
We carry a Gopro 3 black which enables us to shoot broadcast quality footage, we can also shoot video, take photos and transmit a live stream down to our ground stations 7" LCD screen all at the same time.
The camera is mounted below the aircraft so that the propellers are out of shot. The camera mount is a 2 axis gyro stabilised brushless gimbal using Martinez brushless gimbal controller boards which means the camera will stay straight and level regardless of the aircrafts pitch or roll. We also have a seperate pitch control so the cameraman can keep the shot in frame via the live feed.
