Vulcan Multiframe Skyhook Hexacopter

Vulcan Hexacopter

The Vulcan Skyhook is probably the best manufactured, strongest, stiffest and most vibration resistant multi-rotor frame on the market today. We have combined this with the Wookong M flight controller and the industry leading DJI Zenmuse 3 axis stabilised camera gimbal to create a fantastically stable flying camera platform currently fitted with a 4K capable Panasonic GH4.

Specification
  • 900mm ‘wingspan’ measured between opposing motor shafts
  • Industry leading Wookong M flight controller from DJI Innovations
  • GPS and compass and pressure sensor providing accurate position and altitude hold
  • Automatic return to take-off point in the event of any communications failure
  • Click and go multi-waypoint capability using Google Earth
  • Powerful electric motors, each capable of creating 2.2kg of thrust
  • Precision matched carbon fibre props for smooth flight with minimal vibration
  • Advanced vibration isolation for the camera gimbal
  • Flight duration between 7 and 12 minutes depending on load, mission type (hovering vs fast flight) and wind speed
  • Rapid battery changes between flights
  • Fully independently controlled camera gimbal capable of carrying cameras up to Blackmagic Cinema size
  • Gimbal stabilisation using DJI’s Zenmuse brushless gimbal
  • Video downlink giving live camera view
  • Independent (of the pilot) radio control of the camera pan, tilt and roll

The Vulcan Multiframe is manufactured by Vulcan UAV

AeroXcraft Quad 670

At 670mm ‘wingspan’ the Quad 670 is a smaller, lighter and more agile aircraft which is perfect for carrying smaller cameras, especially the wonderful GoPro. In situations where fast flight is required to track moving objects this is a great platform.

The Quad 670 carries a DJI 3D Gimbal loaded with a 4K capable GoPro Black4. This is a 3 axis gimbal and gives the same flexibility to our camera operators as the larger Zenmuse gimbal carried by our Hex.

Specification
  • 670mm ‘wingspan’ measured between opposing motor shafts
  • Naza flight controller from DJI Innovations
  • GPS and compass and pressure sensor providing accurate position and altitude hold
  • Automatic return to take-off point in the event of any communications failure
  • Fast and agile
  • Vibration isolation for the camera gimbal using AeroXcraft isolator system
  • Flight duration between 8 and 12 minutes depending on load, mission type (hovering vs fast flight) and wind speed
  • Rapid battery changes between flights
  • Fully independently controlled 3 axis camera gimbal
  • Video downlink giving live camera view
  • Independent (of the pilot) radio control of the camera tilt

Cameras

Our multi-rotors are capable of carrying any camera from GoPro size right up to large DSLR or even the cinema quality Blackmagic Cinema. We are able to provide the following cameras for any assignment:

  • GoPro Hero 4, black edition
  • Panasonic GH4 capable of recording in 4K
  • Nikon D4
  • Nikon D810
  • A wide range of lenses for all of our cameras

We are able to transmit a live ‘camera’s eye’ view down to the camera operator for any of these cameras, allowing precise composition and control. This can be done in standard definition or HD depending on your requirements.
