HeliOptics can get the shots otherwise unachievable by Jib Arms or Full Sized helicopters. By fast deploy-ability and a small footprint the fully electric Helicopter can access covered or tight locations including terrain, rivers, and forests. Tracking or chase shots are achievable by the pilot and camera operator following along in a vehicle. To capture stunning aerials we employ a pilot who controls flight surfaces and a camera operator who keeps visual contact with the subject using the thru-the-lens live video down-link on either video goggles or the base station monitor. Shooting video or still photographs can be controlled mid-flight by the camera operator with a flick of a switch. The camera is secured onto the helicopter and steadied by the latest Gyro- Stabilized 360 degree 3 axis-Pan/Tilt/Roll Gimbal for super steady results. The helicopter can carry up to 7.5lbs of camera payload, this opens the production up to using a variety of camera bodies and lenses including the Canon 5D, 7D, C300 Sony FS100, SI-2K, GoPro & Red Epic sized cameras. Working directly with Producers, Directors, and Cinematographers we can review shot concepts and help guide your production thru the obstacles and challenges that arise when dealing with low altitude aerials. Weather conditions change and being flexible is who we are. When a shot or a shoot needs to be rescheduled due to changes in the weather we will be glad to accommodate. Liability insurance is carried at all times for every flight.
