Still not convinced? Here's why our builds are better than our competitors:

1 . We use market leading DJI flight controllers, which can be easily upgraded with new firmware and configured easily.  Other systems like mikrokopter can be very difficult to setup, configure and find someone to support.

2.  We know what it takes to optimise UAV flight, we are experts at UAV's and have been building and optimising UAV drones for a very long time (since the release of the first KK board).  Our custom drones are guaranteed to be the most stable, highest quality video production drones in Australia!

3.  Our customer service is the best in the industry; we won't leave you hanging after your purchase.  We offer ongoing technical support to all our clients, and we can normally get you back in the air over the phone!

4.  We don't cheap out on parts and components to save on build costs, we use the best components available for your drone.  One example of this is the use of DJI Zenmuse brushless gimbals - these can costs 3 or 4 times as much as servo based, or other brushless models offered by other builders, but gives far superior video stabilisation and isolation than other gimbals on the market.  We overrate all our components so your drone runs cool and lifts heavy loads with ease!

5.  Flight times - our drones are optimised for extended flight times using high efficiency motors and props, which means your drone stays in the air for longer.  Up to 30 minutes can be achieved on this drone (dependent on setup).
