Our fully immersive 360° drone video content is sure to wow your audience, with unmatched image stability all the way up to 650ft giving you a world of possibilities to work in. We can also control lighting day or night with our drone LED light system, with over 130,000 lumens of lighting power on tap to perfect the final result.

"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.
