Technical Details

Three-axis gyro gimbal

The camera is attached to the helicopter via a gimbal which enables remote controlled pan, tilt and roll of the camera. We employ a modified gyro gimbal with custom proprietary control algorithm to ensure vibration free video acquisition. In addition, there are two levels of mechanical vibration dampening to mechanically decouple the gimbal, and hence the camera, from the airframe to physically prevent the propagation of vibrations from the airframe to the video acquisition device.
The attachment of the camera to our system can be done in a matter of minutes, making maintenance etc. easy and even enabling to use different cameras throughout the given shoot.

The camera can be controlled independent of the helicopter pilot by the given camera operator.

Remote Control Functions

Examples of supported cameras

Helicopter

Designed with the specific purpose of camera helicopter held in the foreground, a state of the art platform with extreme rigidity and remarkably low levels of vibration. The power plant is a 5kW Gas turbine to ensure ultimate power, reliability in all weather conditions / climates, and lack of vibration.
