Why choose The Drone Company?
Just some our benefits…
With a range of drones available we can cater for almost any camera and lens combination. Our heavy lift Vulcan Raven has a payload capacity of up to 8kg. This enables us to carry sensors such as the ARRI ALEXA Mini or RED with a variety of lens options.
Our highly skilled drone pilots have flown in some spectacular indoor locations including Formula 1 Paddocks, The Globe Theatre and listed buildings dating back to 1230. It is actually much easier for us as we are not subject to any regulations or the British weather!
With a network of teams across the UK we can save our clients’ money on travel and accommodation costs. We provide expert local knowledge and have the contacts for a fast turnaround on flight permissions.
While most operators can only fly for around 10 minutes before they need to land, our heavy lift platforms offer up to 30 minutes flight time carrying broadcast quality cameras such as the Panasonic GH4 and Sony A7. We have a large supply of batteries ensuring limited downtime.
Just one of our benefits is that we carry an additional permission from the CAA to film after hours. Having the facility to carry cameras such as the Sony A7 and ARRI ALEXA Mini enables us to capture dramatic shots whatever time of day, in fact some of our best content has been filmed in the dark!
The Drone Company have the facility to broadcast live footage from up to 500m using our Connex HD wireless downlink. We are able to do so in full HD (1080p/i) with less than 1ms latency. We have offered this service to large outdoor everts and even the London Olympic Stadium.
