Hey guys, I’m Didier Soulier,

This month we introduce a new feature, the Killed in Action counter. Yep every time we take up in the air one of our Aerial Filming Platforms, we unfortunately sentence to death some innocent unaware tiny souls, such as small flies and mosquitos.

We try to follow the European as well as the British insects best practice guidelines content in WODrt.2008 as best as we humanly possible, however the collisions resulting in insects being spread across our propellers and gear, is sometimes impossible to avoid.

We have also accidently discovered a market for Drone Landscaping, this is up and coming now and about to hit the UK hard. The few pilots that can do it is a small number so price will start to drop soon.

At this present moment though, even though we still in early stage, if anything, it’s just fun to see a drone try to trim a small tree and not achieve anything expect totally ruin it. But so much fun to watch.

moziFlies and mosquitos killed during Aerial Filming (drone) operations:

  • 96, only a few flies were harmed this month. We blame the cold weather.
  • Tree leaves trimmed from drone blades: none this month, landscape activities should resume in the spring 2016.

World’s first 250m dolly track in action in Birmingham, UK:

Could you find a use for such a long track on a future project? Hell yeah I hear you say right?

Well, sorry I lied, I managed to get the footage with my piloting skills to keep level with one of my Aerial Filming Platform PH3-PRO (sub 7kg) or drone. But the results are quite good.

Please view in awesome Ultra High Definition (UHD 4K) in video on YouTube settings and wait for upload before watching, depending on your Internet speed connection.
