Q: How high can you fly?
A: This is the most common question we receive. The height is restricted by how far the operator can comfortably see the helicopter and its orientation. We have pictures taken from about 140 meters (450 feet). Pictures can be taken from several altitudes during a single session.

Q: What camera do you use?
A: We use several high quality digital cameras ranging from 16 to 24 megapixels. We offer image processing services to merge individual frames into aerial panoramas. The resolution of the final product could reach 250 megapixels and above. More about our workflow here.

Q: Is it possible to watch what the camera is capturing in real time?
A: Yes, when needed, we can monitor sessions using wireless video downlink.

Q: How long can you fly in a single session?
A: Flying times could reach 20+ minutes, depending on platform and setup. When needed, multiple sessions can be performed in a sequence, with a short breaks to replace batteries.

Q: What is the maximum wind speed under which you can operate?
A: We can fly in winds up to 20km/h. Wind gusts may affect image quality, so we try to avoid such conditions, whenever possible.

Q: Can you operate during rain or snow?
A: We can still operate during light dry snow, but the image quality may be affected by the weather conditions.

Q: What about safety?
A: Safety is our first priority. Prior to each session we carefully inspect the site for potential hazards. Because we use electric powered helicopters there is no flammable fuel on board. Also, because our craft is remotely controlled, the pilot safely operates the vehicle from the ground. We do not fly over crowds, unless these are trained personnel (in movie sets, for example) and special precautions are taken to ensure safe passage for the camera.
