We started as a pilot platform in 2016 and make image films for companies like Audi, Siemens or Rolls Royce as our main business and are also active in the tourism sector (Brenners Park Hotel, Hotel Deimann, Tourismus Marketing Niedersachsen, Bali, Kotor, Maldives).

We worked a lot with authorities and organizations with security tasks in the past. We have not only equipped countless fire departments with drones, but also trained them.

In the last two years we have been programming our own flight apps to facilitate the flying experiences. You can download our two iOS Apps and get a complete new experience: One Click Drone App and Your Flight App (available evrywhere outside the US)

With the One Click Drone App, flying over  construction sites has never been easier. If you send us your footage, we cut a time-lapse video for you, and it only costs a fraction of the traditional price.

With the Your Flight App, you can draw predetermined flight routes on your device and the drone will perfectly fly the coordinates you set up.

We also build drone cages for the Mavic 2 and DJI M200 and print custom designs for special payloads / instruments. We are always looking for partnerships for drone research and development.

We are here for you!
