FAQs

1. Can you fly in the city or built up area?

Yes.  While working closely with traffic management and the Police we are able to fly over any city buildings, up any street or 400ft over any congested area.  We do require a minimum of 2 weeks notice to put arrangements in place.

2. How long can you fly for?

Depending on wind conditions we can fly for approximately 15-25 minutes (X7 Inspire 2 drone) and 8-12 minutes (heavy-lift drone) before changing batteries. We can fly all day and charge as we fly if we need.

3. Can you do live events?

Yes, we were actually the first company in Ireland to do a live OB from 400ft in the air.  Live HD picture with <1ms delay to up to 5 different monitors then transmit to the world. Live!

4. What lenses do you have?

We have a number of lenses ranging from 14mm to 50mm on our several different cameras.  We can also fly Cooke lenses (standard and panco), Angenieux zooms and even some lighter anamorphics.

5. How fast can you fly?

Depending on wind conditions we can film rock solid footage at nearly 50mph consistently.

6. Can you fly over water?

Yes we have no issues flying over water unlike some of our competitors. We have full faith in our machines and all its failsafes.

7. How low can you go?

We can fly inches from the ground fast and very safely.

8. Can you fly in rain?

We can fly in very light rain if necessary. However, once the lens is wet, the shot is ruined.

9. Do you do photography as well as filming?

Yes in short but we are not your normal jack of all drone company. We are specialists in the moving image.

10. It's Monday, can you fly for us on Wednesday?

In short, if we have pilots and drones available yes we can. We do prefer at least one weeks notice if possible. This also allows us to obtain any special permissions we may need.

11. How high can you go?

Under Civil Aviation Authority laws any UAS (Unmanned Aerial System) cannot fly any more than 400ft in height and any more than 500m away from the pilot.  The pilot must also always have un-aided visual line of sight with the drone.

12. Can you fly at night?

Yes. We have aircraft grade LEDs beneath the craft to guide us in darkness.  We also are one of the few companies with exemptions from the CAA allowing us to legally fly at night in the UK. We also have full permission from the IAA to fly in Ireland in complete darkness.

13. Can you fly at our concert, race, gathering etc?

Absolutely.  There are more restrictions when it comes to large events but it’s very easy to abide by these regulations and still achieve the shot the client wants.

14. Is your footage jerky like I've seen with others?

Absolutely not, our footage needs no post production stabilisation whatsoever.

Fly – Shoot – Grade – Release.
