VIEW OUR DRONE SERVICE PRICES

We aim to make our pricing as clear and upfront as possible, so you know you are getting a fair deal, but also so you can control your own budget

What we include

What we don't include

Let’s be honest nobody likes small print, so we’ve tried to keep our pricing clear and simple.

 

Our prices include standard UK mainland travel to get the drone to the location, in the air and working for the booking.

 

So this includes the drone itself, the camera and lenses, batteries, memory cards, any crew members booked and a director’s video link.

As you might imagine we can’t include costs that we simply can’t predict, such as charges from 3rd parties for use of their land or filming permits.

 

Although our prices include standard UK mainland travel, they don’t include additional expenses such as road tolls, ferry crossings, hotel accommodation or parking fees as and when required.

 

Any charges we occur as a result of the flight operations will be charged at cost.

Disclaimer

Although every effort has been made to make the prices on this website accurate, additional costs may be incurred on a job-by-job basis. As a result. We will only honour prices in official written quotations and therefore the prices on this web site should only be considered as a ‘guide’.

Our 'Heavy Lift Drones'

‘Big Bertha’ and ‘Big Arthur’ are our flagship pair of heavy lift drones for when a high end camera and result is needed.

Our 'FPV Drones'

Our FPV drones are our little speed demons, capable of in excess of 100mph, high speed vertical punches, diving sweeps and aerobatics.

 

We have a couple of different types of FPV drone to cover different uses, both using the latest GoPro cameras or 360° cameras like our Insta360 ONE R:

 

Cinewhoops:

Our Cinewhoops are perfect for creating smooth flowing lines amongst obstacles to create unusual and unique lines.

 

Racing Quads:

Our Racing quads are perfect for when speed and agility is critical, such as chasing cars or motorbikes.

**

Please note, these cameras do not have horizon stabilising gimbals, so footage is more ‘raw’.

Please note, a ‘Competent Observer’ is a Civil Aviation Authority imposed legal requirement for anyone conducting FPV or First Person View flying, as the Remote Pilot will no longer have Visual Line of Sight (VLOS) to the drone.

Why use our 'FPV Drones'

Maximum speed and agility:

Our FPV drones are able to fly at more than twice the speed of conventional drones, as well as inverted and vertically to capture shots like never before.

 

Get close to the action:

Our FPV drones are more rugged than conventional drones, in fact they could probably win a bar fight against Chuck Norris, which means it’s safer to get closer to the action.

 

Indoors:

Our Cinewhoop drones are perfect for tight spaces, gaps and anywhere else you wouldn’t normally fly a drone, as their prop ducts actually allow us to safely bump the drone off its surroundings.

Our 'Buggy Camera'

Our buggy camera is the ultimate in flexible ground based camera movement, without the need for track.

 

Capable of carrying cinema grade equipment, such as Red Epics and Alexa Minis. You can use our own amazing Canon C70, our Canon 5Dmk4’s (c-log upgraded), our BMPC4K *, or lift either your own equipment or even something hired in to fit your needs like a Sony A7S3 or Panasonic GH5S.
