Aer­i­al Filming

Remote-con­trolled drones or mul­ti­copters have become an inte­gral part of film pro­duc­tion for a few years now and offer a wide range of pos­si­bil­i­ties in image cre­ation, min­i­mum space require­ment at a frac­tion of the cost com­pared to a mon­tion-con­troled crane or heli­copter. This allows you to take more shots per day, cap­ture this impos­si­ble per­spec­tive, react quick­ly to script changes and fly in places that are not acces­si­ble to larg­er air­craft.

Thanks to our own pro­duc­tion facil­i­ties, we can also imple­ment any spe­cial request for a fly­ing cam­era sys­tem. Our mul­ti­copters are gen­er­al­ly con­struct­ed as fol­lows:

Gen­er­al characteristics

  • High car­ry­ing capac­i­ty for cam­eras such as GoPro, DSLR, Red Epic/Dragon, Arri Alexa Mini etc.
  • Long flight times. Typ­i­cal­ly 35min with GoPro & onboard cam­era. 25min with Canon 5D. 20min with Red Epic or BMCC. (Longer flight times on request)
  • 3‑axis cam­era head with gyro sta­bi­liza­tion pro­vides vibra­tion-free and sta­ble images even when fly­ing curves.
  • Cam­era con­trol is com­plete­ly inde­pen­dent of flight move­ments, sep­a­rate con­trol pan­el for cam­era oper­a­tor with live image.
  • Wire­less pre­view mon­i­tor for direc­tor etc.
  • Com­put­er­ized 3D flight con­trol sys­tem; Air­craft move­ments can be repeat­ed pre­cise­ly at any time.
  • Safe­ty sys­tem against fail­ure of sys­tem com­po­nents or failure/failure of the remote control.

Tech­ni­cal specifications

  • Size: Up to 1.6m x 0.3m with­out cam­era head, 1.6m x 0.8m with camera
  • Speed: up to 60km/h
  • Flight radius: Up to 800m under man­u­al con­trol (in some coun­tries only on sight), up to 10km under com­put­er con­trol in autonomous flight mode
  • Ini­tial set­up time: 1–3h depend­ing on cam­era sys­tem. Shot to shot: 5min
  • Oper­at­ing time per day: The­o­ret­i­cal­ly unlim­it­ed, depend­ing on out­door tem­per­a­ture and flight schedule.
  • Cam­era head: Three axes. Gyro sta­bi­lized. Unlim­it­ed pan, up to 360° tilt & roll. Remote release.
  • Oper­at­ing con­di­tions: max. Wind 5–6Bft (45km/h). Tem­per­a­ture: +45° C/-15° C. Max. Oper­at­ing height depend­ing on alti­tude, tem­per­a­ture, air pres­sure and cam­era system
