FAQs

What are the flight restrictions?

Our permission from the CAA states that we have a maximum altitude of 400ft and 500m distance from the operator. We can obtain more height and further distance permission but can take some time.

Are you fully insured?

Yes, we have full specialist drone public liability of £5,000,000 which can be increased if needed. All of our airborne and ground equipment is covered too. If you’d like to fly a specific bit of equipment speak to use about the options to get it covered.

Weather limitations?

We can fly in up to 25mph winds and light rain. The lower the wind and rain the better.

What if the weather is too bad for flight?

We closely monitor the weather leading up to the shoot and communicate any findings that may make the flying not possible with the client. The final call is then the clients. We have a 24 hour cancellation policy which is covered in our terms and conditions; we send this to all clients on confirmation of the work.

How fast can your drones fly?

We’ve topped out at the 70mph mark! That was with of a bit of wind behind us and in a very clear open space. We can reach speeds of 40-50mph quite comfortably.

How close can you fly to people?

If the people are within the production and have been safety briefed, we can fly as close as 2m to them. We need a take off/landing clearance of 30m and then 50m during flight of people, buildings and congested areas that are not under the control of the pilot.

What are your flight times?

This all depends on the drone and payload, typical times:

Alta 8 with RED/Alexa Mini & Cine Lenses = 8-10 mins

Inspire 2 With X5S/X7 = 16-20 mins

M210 with XT Thermal/X5S/Z30 = 16-24mins

The lighter the payload, the longer we can stay up in the air.
