Just imagine the creative possibilities when you have a 400 foot jib at your disposal!

Aerial Photography

Pegasus Videos specialises in capturing aerial imagery at various heights using unmanned aerial aircrafts, also known as Drone, UAV or UAS, equipped with high-resolution cameras and multi-axial gimbals. This technology enables us to operate in a fast, flexible and cost saving manner. Since we fly below cloud cover we can operate on many more days compared to manned aerial photography missions. Flying at low altitudes yields unique and ultra-sharp images in which every detail is visible.

4K Aerial photographs are no longer the preserve of the wealthy. We will provide a low cost way to capture exciting aerial images of your wedding, home, construction project, event or business.

We can provide the images in a format of your choice, either unedited (RAW) or photo-enhanced if you require.

We make it our job to stay ahead of rapid technological developments in the commercial drone sector. We are constantly evaluating new drones and data capture technologies. We look at the whole picture, not just the best drone for a job, but the best end-to-end solution – one that delivers consistent, actionable data.

Structural Inspection

Detailed, up-close inspections of key industrial assets and infrastructure can be a time-consuming and often dangerous undertaking. Using drones for inspections can save considerable time, and enhance decision making in terms of asset maintenance and repair.

We have specialised drones for up-close internal and external inspection across a range of applications, including the energy and power generation facilities, large infrastructure assets, such as bridges, highways and rail lines, and core utilities, such as water supply and drainage facilities.

Surveys

We deploy drones to give you instant access to survey or inspect buildings, bridges, wind turbines, aerial masts and tanks without the need for costly and dangerous rope access or scaffolding.

Aerial inspection and survey using a drone is safer, cheaper and faster than traditional methods. Our CAA trained pilots will help you to complete your survey requirements on time and under budget in complete safety. See here for more information.

Pegasus Videos is the ideal partner when it comes to the provision of professional drone services. We offer a wide range of operational areas.

We assist you with the creation of photographs and film recordings from unusual perspectives, and with demanding mapping and surveying work. We perform complex inspection tasks on industrial facilities, photo-voltaic systems, wind energy installations and bridges. The monitoring of projects or the environment is in good hands with us. We also assist the police, fire brigade and rescue workers during the search for missing persons, with the preparation of location documentation and with all other safety-related fields of application.

Please contact us if you require a professional view from the air. We provide you with advice independent of a manufacturer, plan and realize your flight project and ensure that you get the perfect aerial photograph.

PEGASUS VIDEOS offer the possibility to make a wide range of equipment airborne with its drones, for example, for film productions, surveys or inspection tasks. First and foremost, our intelligent robot technology enables drones to fly very close to objects located in outer areas and indoors in a safe and uncomplicated manner. Due to the design, we allow you to tap into possible applications for countless areas of applications.

Yes – Drone Photography Services has the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) “Permission for Aerial Work” PFAW which means as a licensed commercial operator of UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) we are governed and regulated by the CAA.

The Civil Aviation PFAW is mandatory for anyone flying drones for commercial use in the UK. We are happy to show you our approvals.

Yes – Drone Photography Services are fully insured against injury and damage for each flight with £5million public liability to fly at altitudes of up to 400 feet.

Yes – All of Drone Photography Services pilots are very experienced and have passed the CAA-approved exams and flight assessments.  They all hold the established industry Remote Pilot Qualification (RPQ-s) for multi-rotor aircraft under 7kg.

Under CAA regulations we are allowed to fly from ground level up to a maximum altitude of 400ft.  The airspace for manned aircraft is over 500ft so this leaves a separation zone of 100 feet.

We do not fly in high winds and rain. We can fly in winds gusting up to 22mph. Our advanced camera gimbal system gives very smooth shots in winds of up to about 15 mph.

Our drones are capable of flying in light rain but rainwater on the camera lenses can spoil any shots.

Our drones will fly in temperatures from -10°c to 40°c.  In very cold weather we make sure the battery packs are warmed and kept warm before flying.  The maximum drone flight times on one battery of 24 minutes can be reduced by up to 50% in very cold temperatures.

What if we have bad weather on the day

We monitor the weather forecast 5 days in advance of any shoot. If the signs are not good we talk to the client 48 hours prior to the shoot.

If we both decide to stay with the day and we have bad weather, our pilots will wait on site as long as possible in the hope of a break in the weather.

If we have to re-schedule a date because of weather the booking deposit is transferred to the new date.

Weather is known business risk in the UK so we are as flexible as possible to ensure that bookings can be rearranged.

The maximum flight time on a single battery in normal conditions is upto 24 minutes. On average we fly up to 20 minutes before landing and changing the battery.

We carry spare pre-charged batteries on each shoot. It only takes a few minutes to change the battery and get back in air. So, we are able to fly all day with very little disruption.

No – We only hire our drones along with our own skilled and qualified pilot.

Each of our UAV’s (unmanned aerial vehicles) are registered with the CAA and each pilot needs to be certified and licensed by the CAA.

This depends on the job.   In most cases we send a single pilot to client sites.  For a more complicated shoot we use two ground stations with a pilot and a separate camera operator.

Yes – We stream the aerial drone footage in real time to the pilot’s remote controller which allows the client on the ground to see what the aerial camera is capturing.

This lets us to adjust the camera pan, tilt, framing and drone flight path as we fly to get the best shots.

Yes, we do.  However unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) flying rules and regulations vary from country to country.  Please ring us to discuss your requirements.

The maximum airspeed of our drones is up to 49 mph.   Our maximum range permitted by the CAA is 500m with the pilot maintaining a visible line of sight at all times to the UAV.  Our maximum permitted altitude by the CAA is 400ft.

Our CAA approval clearly defines where and how we can fly.

The main operational conditions for a small unmanned aircraft SUA are:
• Maintaining a distance of 50m from people and property not in control of the pilot.
• During take-off and landing maintain a distance of 30m from people and property not in control of the pilot.
• Permission of the landowner to take off and land.
• Directly overhead or within a minimum distance of 150m from an open-air assembly of over 1000 people.
• Maximum height of 400ft above ground level.
• Maintain visual line of sight of the SUA to a maximum distance of 500m.
• During daylight hours, so that you can clearly see the SUA and take avoiding action from other air users if required.
• Outside of controlled airspace.
• Restrictions apply to certain areas of Central London and additional permissions to fly in these areas need to be sought from the CAA.
• Restrictions and rules apply to flying near an airport and aerodrome.

We can fly close to buildings and people when we have consent of the owner and the people in close proximity have been briefed and are under the control of the pilot.

This allows us to do close survey work of building, roofs, building sites, hotels and golf courses.

You will find quick guide to our UK prices here on the website.

Our prices may vary depending on the complexity, associated risks and location of the drone aerial photography. Please call or email us to discuss your plans and requirements.

Each job is unique and because all aerial photography drone flights are covered by CAA regulations.  We carry out a detailed online Pre-flight survey before we send you a final quote.

You do not require your own insurance for a flight carried out by PEGASUS VIDEOS. All flights are under the protection of a liability insurance stipulated by law.

The potential savings through the use of drones are manifold:

Drones are extremely cheap and flexible compared to many conventional methods with helicopters, cranes, lifts and scaffolding. They are quickly ready for use, small in size and help to avoid unnecessary risks.

The expense and the risk associated with the use of industrial climbers can often be reduced through the use of flying robots. In addition, the inspection period can be significantly reduced in many cases and closures of buildings and terrain can be circumvented.

Do I, as a customer, have to obtain a flying authorisation?

No. PEGASUS VIDEOS is a full-service provider and takes care of all the necessary authorizations and formalities. We arrange both the take-off authorization and any necessary approvals from other authorities for you such as from the public order agency, office for traffic management, parks and open spaces department, etc.

We are happy to offer a short demonstration flight in conjunction with a site visit.

They get different aerial footage and results.  Drones can fly closer to the subject, they are quieter, can be deployed quicker as weather and filming dictates, and they are a fraction of the cost of hiring a helicopter and pilot.

Yes. The drones used are suitable for indoor as well as outdoor use. For the take-off and landing, you require an area of approximately 3m x 3m in areas which are not deserted.

Otherwise a surface which is slightly larger than the diameter of the drone will be sufficient.

Our drones are battery powered with electric motors so there is no worry about polluting the environment. The dynamics of flying indoors are different. The construction and materials in the building can affect how the drone UAV flies.

95% of the time there are no issues with flying indoors but safety is our number one priority. Only a short flight test can give us the final answer.

Drones are suitable for a variety of fields of application. If you have special requirements or wishes or face a particularly special challenge, we at PEGASUS VIDEOS are the ideal partner for you. We provide you with individual advice and find the optimal solution for your project.
