The BEBS team is extremely excited to be putting some hours on our new bird! A month ago, we purchased a Freefly Systems ALTA! It has been a wonderful experience using the top-mount feature, and being able to rely on the consistency of the SYNAPSE Flight Controller. This bird folds up and can be stored within less than 5 minutes. The ease of portability has truly changed our workflow experience.
You can see the stunning sights of Montana after a fresh snow in our new video, which is shown in a way that we were not able to capture in the past. "Birds Eye's Perfectly Stabilized Drone and Camera" video can be seen here on Vimeo.
Unmanned Aerial Systems, or drones, can be used for many different things: from carrying objects to collecting data. Each style of UAS is designed to specialize in it's purpose- which often changes the appearance or goal of the machine. If you are looking for a drone to carry objects, you will be more attentive to it's payload abilities. For companies making drones for collecting data, there is a large focus on length of range and battery life. In the film industry, it's all about camera stabilization.
Although we have worked on agriculture and search & rescue jobs, a large chunk of our work is involved with the film industry and focuses on creating long duration, stabilized shots. Directors of documentary style films or shows particularly often want consistent, slow-moving footage that lasts as long as we can provide. In the past, we relied on our pilot's skill and were confined to the operation of another drone's Flight Controller. On a technological level, we were limited by this antiquated technology.
The SYNAPSE Flight Controller's ability to customize the throttle input levels allows us to create awe-inspiring, high-resolution, stabilized shots for lengths of time that match virtually any directors desire, with less effort than was required before. The top-mount feature of this UAS is unparalleled, and allows directors to express new found creativity with aerials that are only possible with our ALTA.
Our new bird will provide a competitve edge to your project that is matched by few. We are so excited to help you See Differently!
