While drones are limited to a maximum operating height of 60 meters by CAAS, helicopters can fly much higher and longer than drones. Thus the area of coverage is significantly larger than drones. Skyshot regularly conducts heliborne aerial photography for large-scale projects like the reclamation project in Pulau Tekong. We have also done helicopter aerial shoots in regional countries like Indonesia and Malaysia.
Secured to an industrial crane, the Crane Cam is a remote control DSLR camera system for high-resolution aerial photography. The key advantage of Crane Cam is the ability to shoot in drone no-fly zones. One example is the LTA road construction project near Paya Lebar Airport where drone flights are prohibited. With the Crane Cam, we are able to conduct monthly aerial filming for this project.
Our drones are equipped with software for autonomous flights to capture images for aerial mapping, 3D terrain modelling, land survey and volumetric calculations. This can be done cost effectively for long term projects.
Skyshot regularly conducted 1 day workshops for media schools interested in drone aerial filming. We introduce our students to the fundamentals of flight controls and drone safety with both classroom theory and hands-on outdoor drone operation.
Our 2-day workshop focus on aerial cinematography & 2-men drone filming. It’s a professional course made for filmmakers who are interested in aerial cinematography. Classes are conducted in partnership with AV8 media, a certified media school in Singapore.
