PILOT CONTROLLED FLIGHT, NO ROBOTICS.
8 BLADE OCTO | COMPACT | COMPLETE DRONE DEPARTMENT
Our clients demand reliable camera movement that is controlled by a ninja drone pilot. Unlike other drone companies we don’t fly toys that relay on GPS. Rory pilots the FreeFly Alta which gives precise real world control without the robotic movement found in consumer drone technology.
The drone is the ultimate camera movement system, giving the cinematographer wizard like power with ninja precision.
“Man must rise above the Earth—to the top of the atmosphere and beyond –
for only thus will he fully understand the world in which he lives.”
