X8 “Heavy Lifter”
Our custom built X8 is truly a heavy lifter, capable of lifting 75 lbs. The coaxial design allows for this drone to fly well in high winds. In addition to its resistance to wind, it has a top speed of 65 mph.
Our customized "flat" octocopter is a nice blend of stability and speed. With a top speed of 60 mph, our flat can lift up to 30 lbs. With this drone we can carry the RED camera for about 12-13 minutes per battery set, which makes our flat the "eco bird" of the fleet.
HEXACOPTER | GROUND STATION
Our custom built hexacopter is our fleet's scout ship. Some applications require precision flying where waypoints are generated to create autonomous missions. Once our "scout" flies the mission successfully, we can program our heavy lifters to fly the exact flight path. These flights can be repeated as many times as needed.
FLY ALL DAY
Here at VidMuze Aerial Cinema, we have specific flying requirements to ensure that our ships perform to fulfill the highest expectations in regards to both safety and quality of flight. All of our drones are fully built, customized and tested on a regular basis by the VidMuze Aerial team.
Accurate camera compositing is the number one priority in the aerial industry. Previewing a high definition image during our flights is key. We also offer a second HD live feed for directors and clients to preview the footage during each flight.
With latest in batteries and charging technology, we can keep our batteries charged throughout the day so we can keep on flying.
