Remote-controlled Aircrafts Aerial Filming Services

Utilising variety of remote-controlled unmanned aerial systems (UAS) we provide variety of aerial cinematography services. Even our simplest and smallest systems are based on at least 4K resolution digital cameras. Our top-grade systems feature resolutions all the way up to 8K…

Primary Platform

dji_logo_600

The vast majority of our fleet is based around DJI technologies – both hardware and software. We have chosen DJI due its variety of UAS platforms, robustness, safety and reputation. DJI is the leading manufacturer of civilian UAS and it has revolutionised the operation of multi-rotor aircrafts, making them easier and safer to operate in wide range of service applications.

What is “drone”?

There has been common misunderstanding of both general public and even some industry professional about the use of the term “drone“. Unfortunately this term was introduced to the public via its more negative association with military use and the global media has adopted this term – may we add incorrectly – pretty much for any remotely-controlled aircraft. If we ignore the meanings related to bees and drudges – the actual meaning related to our industry is defined as “an unmanned aircraft or ship that can navigate autonomously, without human control or beyond line of sight“. This makes perfect sense for how this type of UAS are deployed by the military. But it is incorrect to apply this same term to directly-controlled UAV’s and UAS’s. For example a remotelly-controlled (RC) hobby helicopter is simply not a “drone”. The easiest way to explain this on a real-world example is to use the most popular and publicly recognized UAS – the DJI Phantom…

The Phantom can be flown in both direct-control and autonomous modes, as well as a combination of the two – blurring the boundary between “drones” and “RC aircraft”. When flown for filming purposes – in majority of the cases it is flown as directly-controlled RC aircraft (in this case a “multirotor helicopter”). But when we use it for other purposes – such as 3D terrain mapping – it is flown under autonomous-control using specialised software and GPS navigation. In this case it becomes a “drone”. While this should clarify the difference between “drones” and other types of UAS – this also highlights the confusion surrounding these systems. It really comes down to how these systems are being used and for what purpose. For example a simple brick, when used to purposefully harm someone, then becomes officially classified as a “weapon”. Does that make all bricks a weapons?

Difference between UAV and UAS.

Another common confusion is with the use of the terms UAV and UAS. UAV stands for “Unmanned Aerial Vehicle(s)“, while UAS stands for “Unmanned Aerial System(s)“. The key difference is that UAV is just the actual aircraft being remotely-controlled. UAS on the other hand is the complete system that includes the UAV, its “payload” (in our case the cameras), all the remote-control HW & SW and it also includes all the wireless radio-communication technology – and in our case the video downlink. It also includes all the ground-based controls, monitoring and other support technologies as well as the crew men (and women) involved in its operation. This is why it is called a “system”…

Having cleared that up – since we offer this service for filming purposes, we are designating it as “UAFS“, which stands for “Unmanned Aerial Filming Systems“.
We offer three primary categories of UAFS:
