Helicopter videography & Photography
We currently offer the proprietary Vertivue Skybox/Skybox 360 which features a gyro-stabilized fixed box that protects the gimbal from wind. The Skybox 360 allows 360 degree panning since the entire bottom window section pans with the DJI gimbal. The pilot and the client both have their own monitor to view live footage. The camera is a 4K DJI X5 RAW Micro 4/3's camera with interchangeable lenses.
Our camera performs well even at night:

We currently have waivers to fly within a 5-mile radius of JFK and Laguardia airports. We also have a night-time flying waiver in New York City.
Typical waivers include flying over people and flying within a 5-mile radius of a major airport (Class B airspace). If you require flying in areas and circumstances covered outside of our waivers, we recommend that you let us know at least 2 weeks before the shoot so that we can file a waiver with the FAA. The cost for us to obtain waivers varies with the nature of the shoot and numbers of waivers required, varying between $50-$300 and approval is not guaranteed.
Please visit airmap or skyvector for an updated air map with airspace class and info.

Want to insert a model of your building into a video of the area? We specialize in rendering accurate 3D models with textures onto live-action video. Once given the assets, our 3D renderers will make sure that your buildings model reflects the scale, perspective, and shadows in regards to the position of the camera. It will seem as if the building was already built - perfect for investors and clients to view.
With our expertise of the five boroughs of NYC as well as in-depth knowledge of drones, cameras and technology, we have an edge when it comes to consulting and scouting. Services start at $100 per hour + travel.

We also create 360 websites that allow a viewer to navigate to various locations of properties in high resolution 360-degree (vertical and horizontal) still images. We can also use your assets to render your model of a proposed building onto the 360 degree image so viewers can see what the finished property will look like in 360.
