Our aircraft itself is a custom industrial copter that was professionally built and designed by a VERY reputable helicopter company specifically for r/c aerial photography. It uses aircraft and military grade parts throughout.
The flight control is designed by one of the world's leading developers and manufacturers in UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) autopilot systems. Our flight system uses GPS (Global Positioning Satellites) Coordination and 3D Ground Mapping. We're able to fly over a distance of 9 miles away from our original takeoff position and still have FULL control of our aircraft. We can manually pilot the aircraft or we can pre-program a flight with unique waypoints with custom parameters for speed, altitude, type of turn between waypoints, and even custom robotic servo actions to be completed at each waypoint. The craft will automatically take off, complete the entire mission (including any servo actions), return home, and finally land itself right back where it took off! Rest assured there are many fail-safes in the software to account for human errors like too long of flight duration or an altitude below ground level. We also have the ability to change any and all flight parameters on the fly, during the actual flight. This is truly the most advanced flight control system available! This flight control utilizes high quality components precisely calibrated with temperature compensation in all gyros, sensors, and military grade UAV industry renowned flight algorithms. Our aircraft is able to fly INDOORS with the use of an "altitude lock" feature. This allows our aircraft to maintain an elevation +/- 1.5' for amazing indoor aerial photography that cannot be done ANY other way! Our aircraft also uses a air operated pneumatic landing gear. This allows the landing gear to be fully raised up during flight and allows for the camera to have a full 360 degree unobstructed panoramic view. The landing gear is simply returned to the down position before landing the aircraft.
