Why choose The Drone Company?
Just some our benefits…
Our most popular system is the DJI Inspire 2 which is equipped with either the X5S or X7 camera shooting from 4K (H.264) to 6K RAW. We also fly our heavy lift Vulcan Raven which has a payload capacity of up to 8kg. This enables us to carry sensors such as the ARRI ALEXA Mini, shoot instant Live Broadcast and operate in congested spaces.
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. Indoor locations are not subject to any airspace restrictions. Visit our project page to view some of our indoor projects.
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.
Flying our DJI Inspire 2 we can stay up for around 20 minutes, we always ensure we have a large supply of batteries so with a power source on shoot we can film all day and night. Our Heavy lift platforms can offer 30 minute flight time carrying smaller broadcast quality cameras such as the Panasonic GH5.
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 1000m using our custom 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 events and even the London Olympic Stadium.
