Why use a UAV over a helicopter or Plane?
We love planes in fact Phil is a PPL licence holder and tried to fly helicopters once. However our UAV’s are very very quiet, film from only feet off the ground and can go up to 400ft above ground level. Keeping the UAV within line of site we can fly 500 meters away from the pilot in all directions.
Are we Insured?
Yes we are and because we have a CAA permission to fly qualification, you know we are a professional company.
What about the weather?
During most days there is a point when we can fly. As most of our flights are around 7 to 8 minutes we can choose a flight time to suit. Our aircraft likes it dry and not too windy but we can fly in winds up to 15knts and not raining. A little bit of damp air is ok but we will keep an eye on the weather forecast for you.
Can you fly over people in built up areas?
No. We cannot fly closer than 150 meters to crowds over 1,000 people
