Frequently asked questions
What drones & equipment do you use?
We use the DJI Inspire 2 drone, a top end UAV that is used for professional productiuon such as TV and movies. It has an additional 45mm lense when needed and produces 4k video and an additional controller allowing 2 person operation. It is backed up by smaller Phantom 4 and Mavic drones, whilst supported by various ground equipment such as DJI Osmo 3 and Go Pros.
What do you charge?
Each job is priced individually as different locations require different amounts of planning. A guide price would be £170 for a basic roof inspection <30 miles from base or £250 for a drone only wedding package.
Can I fly your drone?
Are you insured?
Of course! As part of our PfCO (licence) with CAA we are required to have a specialist insurance policy in place for a minimum of £1million including public liability. This is usually sufficient for the majority of projects however should a specific job require a higher level of cover this can easily be arranged on a day to day basis with our insurers, Coverdrone.
Can you fly in rain and wind?
Our equipment as sophisticated as it is has many electronic components therefore we can't fly in rain or snow showers.
What is your cancellation Policy?
We will use our nationwide network to source you an alternative qualified pilot.

How do we recieve footage?
If possible we will transfer edited images & video to you using wetransfer, dronesafe transfer or dropbox.
Is there anywhere you can't fly?
Although technically nowhere is impossible, getting permission and fulfilling safety criteria is another story, so the answer unfortunately is yes there are lots of restrictions as to where we can operate.
Where are you based and what areas do you cover?
We are based in the heart of the West Midland. We have 3 offices - in Lichfield, Tamworth and at Birmingham Airport. Being at the heart of the UK transport hub allows us to cover virtually anywhere. For example, we have completed many drone assignments from The Scottish Highlands down to Cornwall at the lower end of the country, with many places in between including Leicester, Gloucester, and Surrey. Our furthest drone service we have provided was in the Algarve, Portugal photographing many private villas for a local agent we were reccomended to by an existing client.
Do you just do drones?
No! Although drones are are speciality having an operational authorisation from the CAA, we also offer a full videography and photo service. We have the camera, microphones, go pros and gimbals in our toolbox whether your looking for a complete wedding video or a highlights video of a sporting event we have you covered. We can also provide a livestreaming service and offer a photography service in conjunction with By Bex Photography. Whatever we can't do however we probably have the contacts to help.
