Great Shots, Small Package
We fly the DJI Inspire 2 with the X5S and X7 cameras more often than any other drone. We use them on-set and for aerial library footage. They’re small and feature an integrated HD downlink and camera control. And the cameras deliver exceptional quality, with 13 and 14 stops at 5K (12-bit) and 6K (14-bit) resolutions respectively in either RAW or ProRes formats.

Heavy Lift Drones
Set up to carry the ARRI Alexa Mini / LF or the RED Weapon / Helium / Komodo, these X8 and quad format drones deliver the same quality as your A camera. A wide variety of lenses and mounts exist including Zeiss and Cooke primes and Anginieux anamorphic lenses. Standard on all platforms is a 1080p HD downlink, FIZ camera control and a 3 to 4 person team of professionals.

Cinelifter FPV Drones
Custom designed platforms capable of producing high quality 4K footage at speeds up to 90MPH, operating in close proximity to vehicles or other objects. They have the smoothness of a drone but produce footage that feels like flying. They are capable of carrying a variety of camera systems and lenses including the RED Komodo.

Drones on Wheels
We bring a complete mobile production service to your set with production-ready equipment in order to fully integrate into your working environment no matter how remote. We bring portable power systems and workstations to provide continuous battery charging, video review and media handling.

On-Set Essentials
Large field monitors, wireless video village relay, camera and workstation carts compliment our on-set capabilities to make sure we fully integrate with your production environment and can work quickly and effectively in acquiring, reviewing and delivering shots.

Everything Else
From custom cases that carry media shuttles or charging equipment to a selection of purpose built camera control systems to a selection of tools and spare parts, we carry a lot of specialized equipment that through years of experience make the difference between good and great.
