Are you insured?

Yes. $20 million in public liability and damages, in the HIGHLY UNLIKELY event of somebody getting hurt, or damage sustained to property.

Are you licensed?

Yes. We are CASA licensed RPA (drone) controllers and operators. CASA ReOC certification number: CASA.ReOC.0701

Can you fly anywhere?

No. We can't fly "anywhere".

There are strict laws against flying within 3 nautical miles (5.5 km) of a towered airport, such as Sydney's Kingford Smith and Bankstown airport. Heavy penalties apply in breach of this rule, as it increases risk to air traffic.

However, we can make applications with CASA to fly inside of this restriction zone, on a case-by-case basis, as well as obtaining the necessary insurance coverage.

There are also other various restricted air spaces, such as those reserved for the use of sky diving. Talk to us to discuss about compliance.

How high can you fly?

We can fly as high as 400 feet (122 metres) AGL (Above Ground Level) without the need of CASA approval. Beyond that, we can seek CASA approval, as well as obtain all the necessary insurance coverage, on a case-by-case basis.

Can you fly over crowded events?

No. However, we can make submissions to CASA for approval for such an event. Contact us to discuss.

Can you fly in the rain/snow/hail?


Still confused? Or you need something different…

Don’t worry, we don’t bite… Tell us in plain English what you might be after, and one of our humans will converse with you the old-school way.

What is HDR anyway?

HDR stands for High Dynamic Range. The digital camera sensor (for that matter, even old-school film) does not have the same dynamic range as the human eye. Our eyes are better to perceive darker areas, as well as bright areas of a real-life image better than a camera can. Because of this, we take 3 (or more) images of varying exposures, and have it merged onto a single HDR image. Thus, you can now have the best of both worlds. Great detail in the sky, as well as great detail in the shadows. Below is a simplistic example to illustrate this.

Under Exposed Image

An under exposed image gives you good detail in the bright sky and sun, but lacks detail in the foreground, such as the lighthouse, the grass and trees.

Over Exposed Image

An over exposed image give you great detail in the darker areas, such as the face of the light house but the sun and the sky is over exposed and lacks any detail.

HDR Processed Image

Here we have a HDR processed image, merging both (usually at least 3 images) onto a single image. Thus, we get the best of both worlds; the detail in the bright sky, as well as the detail in the shadows. The result is a stunning and pleasant, professional looking image.
