The Freefly ALTA 6 multi-rotor unpacks, ready to shoot, in under five minutes. It is easy to fly in our hands, powerful, rigid, adaptable, reliable, and is a UAV optimized for up to 15-pound payloads. Confidently fly RED, ARRI, even using our custom built set up we can fly the Nokia OZO, and other professional cameras. Our Alta6 is guided by a state-of-the-art SYNAPSE Flight Controller. Did you now we can even top mount a camera set up with the MOVI M15 to get those epic underpass shots, launching a whole new way of cinematographic expressions.
Let us show you our skills with this heavy lift rig, got a car chase, downtown shot with close proximity filming this rig has you covered.
The Freefly TERO is a completely new way to move the camera. The system allows for an extremely dynamic low camera angle coupled with full 3-axis control of the MōVI stabilizer to create never-before-seen shots. With our custom Vibration Isolation System on a car as smooth and agile as this, you’ll rethink what is possible from a chase car. Imagine a low banked camera shot at 30 mph as the fight scene in the van happens from a 30 inch off the ground perspective with a RED Helium!
Kinefinity Terra 4K
The Terra 4k – is a beast in a small package only 990g we can throw this on our drones with cinelenses, handheld gimbals and make run and gun and gorilla shooting a breeze. 4K 160fps with 3200/800 Dual Native ISO, easy to be used like DSLR. Body weighs only 990g. Based on sub-S35 3:2 CMOS imaging sensor with 4K+ record resolution (even up to 11 million pixels with open gate recording), it works up to 160fps @4K Wide, 320fps@ 2K Wide, and records Apple ProRes422HQ or compressed RAW as cDNG directly, to get a fast and smooth post workflow.
High-Speed Dual Native ISO: TERRA 4K
TERRA 4K employs a whole-new, high speed &low noise CMOS image sensor featuring with Dual Native ISO: 3200/800. It captures low-noise and wide-latitude images in regular scenes or low-light environment easily. The native frame rate of 4K CMOS image sensor is up to 160fps, so the TERRA 4K can record 4K wide up to 160fps, 3K wide up to 200fps and 2K wide up to 320fps. At the same time, its rolling effect is very low due to the high native frame rate, even running at regular fps, and the latitude also reaches to main standard for high-end camera: 13+ stops. With advanced process, higher ISO and lower noise, TERRA 4K is twice as low as TERRA 6K noise level, with no need to lower ISO, very convenient and powerful.
This all great but what about the glass we use?
MAVO Prime Lenses are designed specifically for large format cinema cameras. The optical quality is superb, and there is nearly no distortion even with the lens wide open. The diameter of image circle of all the lenses exceeds 46.5mm, which can cover MAVO LF/Venice FF, also cover RED Monstro VV/Alexa LF, and C700 FF. Besides, its ultra high MTF value this allows it to supports 8K resolution on Full Frame. The T2.0 aperture with on a large or medium format cinema camera, ensures we can easily create a shallow depth of field and a smooth focus fall-off for pristine cinematic images.
The MōVI Controller is a professional grade remote system that allows the operator full control over Pan, Tilt, and Roll. Compatible with the MōVI M5, M10, and M15, this controller provides telemetry from the MōVI and allows the user to access MōVI configuration menus to enable on the fly adjustment of key MōVI Okay enough fancy talk - what this means is while we are flying the copter - you have full control of focus, iris, and zoom and all movement controls can be adjusted on the fly to each user's preferred input. Need crisp precise sharp movements easy, need buttery slow dampened pans? Easy Peasy on the fly in real-time.... Want even more precise control?
Meet the Mimic The Kinetic MōVI Controller
The most advanced camera movement system is also the most intuitive. With this new MōVI Control method, there are no joysticks, knobs or wheels. Just tilt, pan or roll the actual Movi Controller and the MōVI on board the drone will follow. It's so instant and organic that operators can execute complex moving shots with precise framing after just minutes of practice.
Digital 3-Axis Gyro-Stabilized Handheld Camera Stabilizer
The MōVI M15 was designed for the most demanding cinema packages out there with no compromises made. Working with industry professionals, we created a system ready to work with large pro cameras like the Sony F55 and ARRI Alexa M.
One of the best features appreciated by crews we work with is - the ability to truly run and gun. Imagine this scene; we follow a car down a country road we are now 100 feet from the Director - we hand catch the Alta in 20 secs disconnect the MōVI, attach to it's handles and start immediately filming the passenger getting out of the car and running away into the fields followed by the Cameraman - easy peasy little reset and downtime - a fluid introduction into your set and crew!
DJI Inspire 2 Cine DNG and Prores 5.2K
We now have 2 aircraft in our fleet and wow what a movie makers dream. These Aircraft are beasts!
We can chase boats, fast cars we can HD Broadcast to the crew, we can live preview with the LUT's you want to see. The footage rivals that of an ARRI. Admitedly it is over kill for most jobs but with its increased safety more precise controls those oblique reverse dolly moves we have been training for are even more buttery smooth using this equipment. Just make sure when we film in CINE DNG DLOG for you your DIT has tons of storage the 480 gig ssd cards onboard the aircraft fill up in about 25 mins! And can take 2.5 hours to transfer.
NOW Shooting in Super 35mm 6k
Lens kit includes: Prime Lenses 16mm 24mm 35mm and 50mm with 14 stops of dynamic range see this page here.
DJI RTK 210 Matrice
This is the new beast finally arriving in the States.
This is the ultimate sensor, survey data collection, and inspection drone. Designed with sub-inch accuracy of flight, able to fly up close to cell phone towers, high tension power lines, and handle inclement weather in its stride.
Able to carry 2 sensors below such as infrared and a zoom camera below, or use a top mounted camera for gorgeous undershots for movies or good old bridge delamination inspections.
This drone is interference protected, even has fixed wing airspace tracking to make sure we are safe in the areas we are operating and can help us make 3d models, orthomosaics, topography, volumetric, and even vegetation analysis from a hitherto unseen stable and accurate platform. This is a huge investment and one that our clients in all industries need, want and appreciate when we fly for them.
DJI Mavic 2 Pro
This incredible little beauty is what we throw in our back pack and go scouting for clients with its tack sharp 4k video and on the fly Facebook live we can show our clients locations, lighting and some seriously tight proximity flying – It may look like a toy but this little puppy is far from being a toy and is perfect for close quarters work.
With a top Speed of 40 mph and able to fly in up to 23 mph winds for around 20 plus minutes the DJI Mavic Pro is our favorite tool for scouting.
While traditional multicopters can match the FireFLY6 PRO's VTOL capability, they fly slowly and inefficiently. With superior flight time and faster ground speed, the FireFLY6 PRO leaves multicopters far behind when it comes to coverage. Gain efficiency and effectiveness by covering more area, faster.
Pure fixed wing platforms have long been the dominant players in applications that require extended flight times, but landing accurately requires expert piloting and often a bit of luck. Common workarounds (reverse thrust/deep stall) still require large areas and result in violent landings. Ever watched a 30k drone slam into the ground doing a belly landing - Ouch!...
...In cluttered real world scenarios, the FireFLY6 PRO's exceptionally accurate, soft landings ensure that your missions end without a stressed out pilot or damage to precious payloads or surrounding property.
WingtraOne helps construction professionals to quickly drone map large or unreachable areas for pre-built evaluation. It also decreases costs and improves the turnaround time for data aquisition and design data needed for construction while helping you stay on track with your budget and timeline throughout a project.
The WingtraOne UAS is used for Agricultural data collection as it produces multispectral imagery to provide accurate plant counts or identify plants’ health problems early on. This data can be used to prevent costly spread of diseases or invasive species. It can also provide valuable insights to boost yield productivity. while reduces the need for over spraying of chemicals in crop maintenance and water management.
Quantum Systems - Trinity F90+
Trinity F90+ vertical take off and tail pusher helps increase the amount of acreage we can cover. The increased flight time and extraordinary lift in its design makes this a very efficient aircraft. Not only that several different payloads can be swapped out. Including but not limited to LIDAR, multispectral and photogrammetry.
We like the ability to fly long corridor missions for our road projects with the 2 aircraft we own. Not to make the jobs quicker with its upto 90 min flight time. But for safety. It's important that we fly the right-of-ways correctly getting the optimal overlap without flying directly over traffic, while keeping our pilots, visual observers and ground crew safe and away from the heavy traffic as quickly as possible.
Transforming drones into satellites
A sophisticated long term power solution for safe and continuous flight From everything to a simple timelapse of a process, to live Broadcasting and streaming on an event to providing security and thermal data during a first repsonse, or whatever the occasion maybe - a tethered, powered camera in the sky provides incredible data and flexibility of view.
This superior new technology is being featured exclusively by Extreme Aerial Productions starting July 2019
As technology changes so do systems and our talents and services.
With recent surveys done of long hours battling elements, location and curious onlookers. We have battle tested and hardened not only the appropriate equipment, but workflows, equipment utilization, and even down to flawless cataloging and delivery of large amounts of data for our clients. Our most recent project at the end of 2021, involved 131 hours of data collection using 2 drones 2 pilots and a roving pilot for breaks, power swaps and field verification of data collected which amounted to 9TB's of information. This successful data collection exercise - was done only with the thorough testing and one on one contact with Blue Vigil the industry leaders in drone tethers. Want to see what really goes into using a tether - oh and for most of you out there - NO! You don't just launch the drone and walk away, you still have to fly it for as long as is needed!
