Managing director Andrew Farrier has a background as a professional photographer http://www.westmidlandsphotographyservices.co.uk so he’s not just a pilot he has a trained eye for an image and its composition. We go to great lengths to ensure the drone operation is as safe as we can make it. All our pre flight planning is detailed and precise . We have detailed checklists to ensure all our equipment is in perfect working order and is continually monitored throughout the operation . Our ground crew ensure public safety is always our upmost priority and this area needs continually managing .
Our Drone operation has built in safety features like return to home should the uplink from the controller fail . The drones take off area will be marked out with cones and safety tape nobody other than the pilot in command will be allowed to enter this space .
We use two way radios to communicate with ground crew who are clearly visible on the ground wearing special Hi- vis safety vests .
Our cameras have 4K Resolution for high quality video and stills are shot at 20 MP

fully approved to fly commercial operations.
All of our equipment is maintained to the highest standards in accordance with our CAA inspected and approved operating procedures.
Our standard UAV drones and handheld cameras film in Ultra-HD 4K video and 20 megapixel still images, using the latest in camera stabilization technology. The Phantom 4 Pro records Ultra-HD 4K video and 20 megapixel still images.
Our remote control gimbal system delivers smooth fluid shots even in difficult conditions. We can operate using a single pilot or a pilot and camera operator depending on the shoot.
Our DJI pilot remote controllers are connected to either iphone or built in monitor which allows us to stream live video footage from the drone to the ground. This permits both the pilot and client to see exactly what is being filmed in real time and this allows us to adjust the camera pan, tilt, framing exposure and drone flight path as we fly to get the best shots.
