FAQs for Aerial Video & Photography

Several questions about our service and how we work can be answered already in our FAQ section.

After all the final images are selected we usually deliver media over Dropbox or WeTransfer.  We can also deliver via FTP, DVD, SD cards or whatever method is the best for the client.

No we do not.  This mode of flight is highly discouraged by both the FAA and AMA as it greatly reduces the safety factor and overall reliability of the flight operations.  However the camera operator uses a monitor to align the camera gimbal remotely.

The camera operator controls the camera from a mobile downlink station in full HD.  From this station the camera operator can see the photo or video image in an LCD display and can control pan, tilt, roll, gyro gain, zoom, iris and record on-off.  A separate monitor LCD display is also available for the client, director or DP.

For safety reasons we never fly over groups of people using our larger aerial cams. When we do fly over people, we use only our small camcopters, and we advise everyone so they can be aware.  Normally great shots are still possible from a safe offset distance.

Our video is comparable to that supplied by a full-sized helicopter with a Steadicam or other gyro-stabilized mount.  Using advanced equipment and engineering, our video is some of the smoothest and most stable in the industry.  Quite often our raw footage is used for broadcast with no stabilization applied in post production. This is only possible due to a combination of 3 decades of designing, building and piloting remotely-piloted aircraft.  Editing services are available at hourly rate.
