From Dusk til Dawn
Outdoors or In …

Reliability, Precision & Safety
Primarily, thanks to its size and distinctive orange colouring, the H520 from Yuneec is a very visible aircraft. Secondly, because the Drone also features redundancy, the H520 remains fully controllable should it loose a rotor or engine in flight. Supporting multiple camera’s, including a long focal length, 4K @ 30fps inspection camera, detail can be captured at a greater distance. In summary, the H520 is a safe and robust choice for Wind Turbine Inspection, Roof Inspections, mapping and more.
A Photo Finish
Available as either a stand alone service or in conjunction with your Project, I offer a variety of post production services, as follows:
Utilising the latest in industry standard video editing software, I have the experience and know how to edit your finished project to completion.
I consider myself an expert in Photoshop having used the software for over 15 years and am able to enhance and edit your images for a perfect result.
