PixAir Production's aerial platforms are environmentally friendly and unobtrusive, powered by advanced Lithium Polymer battery technology. Each aerial system is also outfitted with a gyro stabilized camera mount and a live video down-link to the camera operator to ensure accurate framing for each shot.


Helicopter
Helicopter

The RC helicopter is the most capable and reliable of all the aerial platforms. It is the most resilient in wind, can achieve the most aggressive flight speeds, and can carry the biggest camera setup. Our camera setup is the Panasonic AF100 with a 9-18mm lens (18-36mm full-frame equivalent).


Tolerances:

Duration: 8-10 minutes
Top Speed: 65 mph
Altitude: 400 feet
Distance: 1500 feet
Elevation: 10,000 feet
Wind: 15 mph
Payload: 10lbs.



Okto Multi-Rotor

The multi-rotor can get the closest shots by maintaining the least disturbance from rotor wind and low noise. It can safely fly very close to subjects (even indoors) and can payload up to 2lbs of camera. Our camera setup is a Lumix GH2 with 14-42mm lens (28-84mm full-frame equivalent).

Tolerances:

Duration: 6-8 minutes
Top Speed: 40 mph
Altitude: 400 feet
Distance: 500 feet
Elevation: 8,000 feet
Wind: 5 mph
Payload: 2lbs.



Airship Airship

The airship is capable of achieving the longest flight times and distances, along with incredible audio while flying. This 50-foot helium-filled aerial vehicle is whisper quiet. It is also the safest solution when filming aerial perspectives of events with large crowds. Our camera setup is a Panasonic TM700 with remote zoom control.

Tolerances:

Duration: 1-2 hours
Top Speed: 40 mph
Altitude: 400 feet
Distance: 2500 feet
Elevation: 8,000 feet
Wind: 5 mph
Payload: 2lbs.
