Inspire 2 / X7 / X5S

Our workhorse drones. We always have 3 Inspire 2s with us on shoots, with 2 DJI X7 Super 35mm cameras, a DJI X5S Micro 4/3 camera, & a full complement of lenses for both cameras, from (in 35mm terms) 24mm to 90mm.

All 3 Inspire 2s have CinemaDNG & ProRes licences, & we use fast SSDs for constant backup & to save waiting around at the end of filming days. As well as fulfilling Creative briefs, we use the Inspire 2s with GS Pro for industrial inspections.

Alta 8 / Mōvi Pro

Our heavy lift systems offer great flexibility for productions to use their preferred cameras & lenses, such as the Alexa Mini LF with Signature primes or RED Monster with Cooke primes.

We fly Alta 8s as day-to-day heavy lift aircraft, while our Vulcan Ravens are super heavy lift machines so can handle loads of up to 25kg safely.

The Movi Pro gimbal provides rock-steady footage while giving up to 3 axis lens control and stop/start capability via the Movi Controller.

Mavic 3 Cine

We take 2 Mavic 3 Cines to each shoot - lightweight drones with 20MP Four Thirds CMOS sensor Hasselblad cameras. These can film in ProRes, & as well as being perfect for recces & setting up shots ready for the heavier lift systems, the M3Cs are great for single operator flying - for example amongst trees + for car tracking.

Matrice 300

Used for infrastructure inspections, this industry leading drone is capable of operating multiple sensors mounted above & below the propellors enabling full 360° vision. Our primary inspection sensor is the H20 high resolution x200 zoom camera, both with & without Thermal. The full-frame 45MP P1 camera is perfect for mapping & modelling assets, & we also have the ability to mount the L1 Lidar system along with many other bespoke sensors.

Mavic 3 Enterprise + Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced

Used for infrastructure inspections such as power lines & mobile phone masts, particularly in congested or tight areas, we fly Mavic 3 Enterprise & Mavic 2 Enterprise Advanced drones, with thermal & visual cameras. The addition of the RTK module enables us to survey & map large areas at speed with centimetre level accuracy.

DJI Cinematic FPV

Our DJI FPV drones head out with us on Creative shoots &, used sparingly, add a 'first person view' level of excitement to cinematic shots.
