Why choose The Drone Company?

Just some our benefits…
Night Flying

The Drone Company have permission granted from the CAA to film at night. Some of our favourite work has been filmed after hours, we find it can really add that ‘wow’ factor!

Indoor Flying

We love doing things differently at The Drone Company and flying indoors enables us to do just so. Our pilots have great technical ability and are experts at navigating around tight spaces.

Aerial Filming

With a range of drones available we can cater for almost any camera and lens combination. Our heavy lift Vulcan Raven has a payload of up to 8kg.

Flight Time

We appreciate the importance of time when aerial filming hence we have invested in a large number of batteries to keep the camera rolling. With a quick battery change between flights we can be continuously flying throughout the day if necessary.

Camera Flexibility

Not every shoot is the same, we offer our clients a range of drone platforms to carry cameras such as the Sony A7 or ARRI ALEXA Mini with a variety of lens combinations.

Live Broadcast

We utilise the Amimon Connex system providing broadcastable HD streaming (up to 1080p/i) with less than 1Ms latency from as far as 500m.

Recently used the team from The Drone Company for the first time on a video project which required aerial filming footage. We found the whole team to be very approachable and a great asset to our own video team on the project. The team consisting of one pilot, one cameraman were extremely professional in their delivery of the aerial filming, bringing ideas and recommendations to enhance the video storyboard we supplied.

Si RootThe Hideout

Here at The Drone Company we class ourselves as aerial filming experts, it’s a real passion of ours! We love creating cinematic & dynamic content for our clients to enhance their productions. The crucial factor on every shoot is the communication between the pilot and camera operator to pull off those technical shots. Our aerial filming team have been together for several years and we work to a fine art in translating drone speed, positioning, altitude, decent rate and pan/tilt on the gimbal to execute a perfect shot.

Our maximum altitude set by the CAA is 400ft so we are capable of getting those high and wides as well as being able to fly 500m away for any necessary tracking shots. We have a number of drones/UAV platforms available as we appreciate that not every job is the same. The smaller platforms carrying 4k broadcast quality sensors are ideal for flying indoors or in tight spaces where as our heavy lift platform spans 1.2m and is capable of carrying a payload up to 8kg! We have been hired to film across many different sectors including news coverage, commercials, viral video, film & television.
