We fly the DJI Inspire 1 quadcopter, which is a professional aerial photography and aerial video drone capable of delivering visually stunning results. Our UAV or ‘drone’ is fitted with state-of-the-art GPS to allow for precise, controlled positioning during flight. This is paired with a 3-axis, electronically stabilized gimbal – the X3, which ensures that every shot captured is buttery-smooth and cinematic.
Our drone can record aerial video at a range of resolutions and formats including, standard HD (1280x720p), Full HD (1920x1080p) and UltraHD or 4K @ 4096x2160p, in MP4 or MOV. We are capable of shooting aerial stills at 12 megapixels in either JPEG or DNG.
To ensure the best possible view, the legs of the drone retract upwards giving us unobstructed 360 degree views.
