The most advanced equipment.

To be the best, it takes the best. Not only do we employ the most skilled pilots and operators in the region, we maintain a fleet of the most advanced equipment. From our video equipment to remote sensing, you won’t find anything like what we have around. Our equipment might look standard, but you don’t see the hours of customization we put into our drones to make them perfect for every job.

DJI Inspire 1

The DJI Inspire 1 is our workhorse. If you hire us for a video production job, chances are, you’ll see it in the sky. It features 20 minute flight times on each battery, uncompressed 4K Ultra HD footage, and the ability to control the camera independently of the drone which gives us the ability to pull off shots that aren’t even imaginable with other drones.

Flight Time

Each battery lasts about 20 minutes. With 7 batteries per drone, we’re able to develop a discharge-charge rotation that can keep this drone in the air for the entire day.

Payloads

The DJI Inspire 1 comes standard with a 4K Ultra HD camera. In addition, we’ve upgraded the camera to be able to record video uncompressed at 1.9 Gigabytes per second. This means you lose nothing in your image, and everything looks as clear as you would be seeing it yourself. With this upgraded camera, we’ve got the ability to control focus remotely from the ground which adds to our capabilities.

Required Operators

Two operators are required for this drone. One to pilot the drone, the other to control the camera and capture flawless shots.

Suggested Uses

Video Production
Aerial Photography
Remote Inspection
Short Range Search and Rescue

SenseFly eBee Ag

If you’re looking for any sort of aerial mapping, you’ll definitely be getting a product from the SenseFly eBee Ag. With automated flight planning and grid construction, extended battery times, and redundant safety systems, the eBee Ag is our go to for everything mapping related. Don’t let it’s lightweight design fool you, it’s a powerhouse of aerial sensing, providing maps up to 10 times the resolution of Google Earth.

Flight Time

Batteries for the eBee Ag last on average of 45 minutes, which allows us to map around 200 acres per flight. We’ve got multiple batteries so no job is too big. Our state of the art map making software allows us to stitch images from multiple flights into one big map, so creating a map the size of a city can be easily done.

Payloads

The eBee Ag can be outfitted with a variety of aerial sensors that capture different wavelengths of light or even heat. We use these different sensors, such as multi-spectral, Near Infrared, or thermal, to help see what goes unseen when it comes to managing your crops. If you need a Google Earth style map, we simply equip the ebee with a normal color camera and let it go to work.

Required Operators

We usually send the ebee out with one operator. Though in high stress areas we will send two. One to operate the drone and one to spot for obstructions and assist in flight planning/setup.

Suggested Uses

Agriculture Imaging
NDVI Mapping
Thermal Mapping
Solar Energy Audits
Heat Energy Audits
Electrical Utility Audits
GIS/Surveying
Elevation Mapping
3d Modeling Integrations
Construction Management/Planning

SenseFly eXom

The sensfly eXom is a must have for any sort of remote sensing where a fixed wing drone won’t work. With a 38 megapixel camera, thermal sensor, and the ability to look both straight up and straight down, we’re able to give aerial mapping and sensing a whole new definition. Perfect for 3d modeling, thermal audits, and spotting minute cracks in structures as high as 400 feet in the air.

Flight Time

Each eXom battery lasts 22 minutes. With the ability to swap batteries out, we have the capability to stay aloft for as long as the job requires.

Payloads

The eXom is equipped with a 38 megapixel camera which offers amazing resolution which is great for still photography, aerial inspections, and 3d Modeling. In addition to that, it also has a built in thermal camera which provides us access to temperature information of any subject we are viewing. The eXom features safety cameras which give us a 360 degree view around the drone which assists in obstacle avoidance, and has integrated obstacle avoidance technology as well. Need to see something in low light conditions? It’s got a built in headlamp that follows the camera.

Required Operators

We send the eXom out with two operators for better flight planning capabilities and to add to efficiency.

Suggested Uses

Thermal Mapping
Thermal Imaging
Solar Energy Audits
Heat Energy Audits
Electrical Utility Audits
GIS/Surveying
Elevation Mapping
3d Modeling Integrations
Construction Management/Planning
Search and Rescue

DJI Phantom 3

While the DJI Phantom 3 is extremely simple, it does come in handy. With modified transmitters/receivers, we’re able to push this rugged drone out to great distances, which is helpful for search and rescue, as well as responding in natural disasters to check for downed power lines and other potential hazards. In addition to that, it’s great for sending on aerial photography jobs.

Flight Time

The DJI Phantom 3 has battery times of 25 minutes. Being a lightweight drone, it allows us to travel a great distance on a single battery, and using modified propellors and motors, we’re able to hover in a single spot for a greater period of time with less battery loss.

Payloads

The DJI Phantom 3 is equipped with a 12 megapixel camera that shoots 4K footage, and allows us to output 720p video signal through and HDMI cord to nearby monitors. This comes in handy for search and rescue missions or hazard identification missions where we need multiple eyes on the screen.

Required Operators

The DJI Phantom 3 only requires one operator, but for different missions, we use more as needed.

Suggested Uses

Aerial Photography
Aerial Videography
Search and Rescue
Remote Hazard Identification
Aerial Inspection
Long Range Aerial Visualization
