The Phantom 4 Pro is our go to drone for most jobs. It has 4K video capabilities, collision detection and so much more. Being small and lightweight gives the pilot the ability to fly this drone almost anywhere. We have actually used this drone in the shooting of a feature film call '' (Release date TBC)DJI Spec
The latest instalment from DJI has it all. It's a filmmakers dream with a camera capable of shooting in 5K and comparable to the Arri Mini. This drone is slowly becoming the the go to drone for film makers. Check out 'The Circle' a short feature film created entirely with the Inspire 2.DJI Spec
All our pilots must have the relevant training and approved to fly Commercial Operations by the CAA. To stay in check pilots must have flown a drone for a minimum of 2hrs over a rolling 3 month period.
Each year CAA licenses must be renewed and manuals checked etc to ensure all pilots are capable of carrying out drone operations. Rules and regulations for drone operations are in a state of flux at the minute and here at RAPTR we eagerly stay tuned to new changes and regulations and pass that information to our clients where required.
