Our primary “drone” of choice is the DJI Inspire 2 paired with the X5S M4/3 camera sensor. The Inspire 2 is an incredible proprietary UAV imaging system capable of 12 bit RAW images with 20.8 effective MP, 12.8 stops of dynamic range, and 5.2k video at 2 Gbps bitrate up to 30fps (4k at 60fps). Our range of M4/3-compatible lenses allow us to capture stunning footage at various focal lengths to fit the creative needs of your project. Available codecs include H.264, ProRes 422 (HQ) and ProRes 4444 XQ. The Inspire 2 is an exciting system to add to our fleet of UAVs, giving us the flexibility to work on projects of all scales. Did we mention it can reach speeds up to 58 mph?



Aerial Photography

We are able to take stunning aerial photographs at high resolution. Whether its for construction progress monitoring or real estate, we dedicate ourselves to producing the highest aesthetic.


The viewpoints an aerial video show are unattainable in any other way. We produce high quality cinematography through skillful piloting and creative judgement.


With the amazing potential of photogrammetry we can produce geo-referenced orthomosaics and 3D models of any subject, exportable to fit your needs.
