Common questions

We have established ourselves as pioneers in formulating a strong suite of processes and operational approaches that comply with the regulations and directives of the Civil Aviation Authority. Our organisation possesses the essential authorisation granted by the CAA, which is generally acknowledged in nations beyond the UK's borders. It goes without saying that we are also equipped with the requisite insurance coverage to conduct drone light shows.

Our drones have water-resistant capabilities. Additionally, our equipment is capable of flying in light rainfall, provided that the conditions do not escalate to heavy or continuous downpours.

It's essential to secure a Notice to Airmen (NOTAM) through an application to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) or local Flight Restriction Zone. This serves as an alert to notify aircraft about the event.

Typically, a 28-day advance notice is required; however, should your timeframe be shorter, don't hesitate to get in touch with us.

It's also considerate to inform the local police, in case people start report seeing lights in the sky.

The cost of a drone light show varies based on the quantity of drones utilised and the complexity of the animation involved. For a quote, please contact us directly.

Our dedicated in-house animation team meticulously crafts each spectacle we present. We provide detailed visuals and renders to aid in the selection process for your display's various scenes.

Following approval, we proceed to produce a comprehensive animation and conduct rigorous testing.

We design the show's choreography using advanced 3D animation software. We have written our own software tools to assist in creating class leading displays and we offer a visual representation of the choreographed sequence, our service includes delivering the animation as a video and/or providing photographic visuals.

Yes!  And all in-house.  Our comprehensive service includes the provision of both small-scale and large-scale fireworks, sophisticated laser shows, dynamic lighting, and PA systems, all of which we supply in-house.

Our company possesses a vast array of resources and a dedicated team capable of delivering turnkey solutions for events.

Additionally, we offer professional filming and drone photography services to capture your occasions from every angle.

The space required depends upon the height of the display. However, to provide a ballpark figure, a minimum area of 130m by 150m should be allocated as a secure zone, which must be maintained as a secure location throughout.

Don't hesitate to reach out via email or telephone initially.

We're keen to understand your needs and will eagerly put forward various proposals and creative solutions.

While a minimum of four weeks is ideal for us to design a spectacular drone show, we have delivered with as little as 30hrs notice.

To ensure your display meets the highest standards, our animation team prefers several weeks to meticulously plan and execute your vision.

Additionally, coordinating with the Civil Aviation Authority and nearby airports to secure airspace is an integral part of the process that requires ample time.

Certainly, we offer bespoke drone light displays for weddings. Our expertise lies in tailoring each segment of the performance to fit the unique visions of you and your beloved.

To offer a budget-friendly option, we also have pre-choreographed shows that can be performed at your chosen location, featuring sky-high initials of you and your partner — a great moment for photographs.

We are equipped to curate a playlist based on your preferences – or we can propose selections for your consideration. Should you require a narrative to unfold alongside a tailor-made soundtrack, rest assured we are adept in managing the entire process, ensuring meticulous editing and mixing of the soundtrack.

Additionally, we offer the service of commissioning exclusive music, providing you with a truly one-of-a-kind and customised experience.

Our system enables lighting designers to manage the swarm's colour scheme using artnet or DMX control.

From the outset, we recognised that the existing market offerings did not satisfy our stringent criteria. Since our establishment in 1999, our mission has been to lead the industry in innovation.

Our approach involves designing drones from scratch, ensuring every aspect originates from within our expert teams. We have specialists dedicated to CAD designs for parts, PCB layouts, firmware and software development.

It's with immense pride that we represent one of the global leaders in swarm drone technology—a product crafted entirely in the UK.
