All our drone hire for TV packages are tailored to fit your vision. All equipment is dual operated by a pilot and camera/gimbal operator with a live stream to the ground. This means that we are always in complete control of what is being filmed, giving you truly beautiful shots every time. What’s more, this setup puts you in the (metaphorical) driver’s seat – if necessary, we are able to capture the exact shots you need during the flight by altering the drone camera’s speed, angle, look and feel to match your unique requirements perfectly. Alternatively, we are happy to work from a shot list.
"I just wanted to email and say a huge thank you for all of your hard work on the Comic Relief challenge.
The team loved working with you, Roger and the drone shots were wonderful. I know it wasn’t the easiest of tasks navigating around the estate with all of the Covid controls in place but you managed this brilliantly.
Thank you and hope to be able work with you again soon."
"These are F$%king great! Million dollar shots. Game changing images, Bond on a budget!"
The Skypower duo provided beautiful shots for us with minimum fuss. In my experience, some pilots and camera operators don't pull off the teamwork required to deliver. I have no hesitation in saying that the Skypower guys did.
We used Skypower for an aerial shot on a short client film and in a few words we simply could not have achieved what we had hoped without them! They understood exactly what we required and were extremely helpful in sharing with us their expertise and knowledge. In addition to their professionalism and skills in aerial filming, they were a lot of fun to work with and helped make it an enjoyable and relaxed experience. We hope and look forward to working with them again.
Skypower were the definition of unflustered. We had a combination of challenges: night shoot, scattered showers, limited time and squads of passers-by. The Skypower team stayed ice-cold throughout: they helped us find a way to get every shot we wanted and the results are breathtaking. We wouldn't hesitate to work with them again.
We got in contact with Skypower after we had been let down by another supplier and despite the last minute nature of the request they were incredibly helpful in organising our shoot in just a couple of days' time.
Hi Neil, Everyone is very happy with the footage I saw some yesterday myself and it looks amazing. I can say with much confidence that I am pretty sure that we will want to use the copter again.
Skypower helped us film a Public Safety demonstration video in the centre of London, a very challenging environment from a Civil Aviation perspective. The company helped us identify a location and worked with us to find the best time for launch and filming (including coping with tide and weather conditions). In the end we ended up with some footage which could have ben from the "Bourne identity" of a suspect running across the Millennium Bridge. Excellent work guys.
Thank you, it looks fantastic, I can't wait to see the reaction at the grand reveal - I know the lads were really excited about it when I saw them last week, 5 mins of fame and all! Really appreciate the effort everyone put in! Great working with you.
