WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE WITH THE REAL HELICOPTER SHOT ?
Taking picture with the real helicopter vs UAV has they own advantageous. For long range shooting is better to be taken by real aircraft, but real aircraft cannot fly very close to the object due to safety reason. Our services is ideally used for close range aerial photography and filming. Doing aerial photography using UAV is also simple and easy to manage than real aircraft. Nowdays, our UAV is also capable to do ultra long distance flight combined with extremely high altitude using a fixed wing aircraft that can carry small camera.
WHAT IS THE SECRET TO PRODUCE GOOD AERIAL VIDEO USING A REMOTE CONTROLLED AIRCRAFT ?
First, we have to build the appropriate aircraft with precision design for a spesific camera to fly with, and this is almost cannot be done by purchasing a "ready to fly" aircraft, we need to learn the basic of aeromodelling knowledge. Second, we have to build a camera gimbal which can minimize shake and vibration as we can. The most difficult part in creating aerial footage is to make the camera as steady as possible, smooth camera movement, not shaking, and not vibrate. The last important thing is operator must have sense of art. The combination all of them will let you create a beautiful and artistic aerial footage. There are many helicam operator out there BUT the result will be different each other. Many of them just creating standard quality aerial footage and only a few of them can produce an artistic and expensive aerial footage.
