Take a look at what we can offer your project

4K Cameras

Our video cameras can capture 4k resolution and the highest quality, RAW photographs for unsurpassed editing, control and colour accuracy.


We take the headache out of planning your project, analysing the location airspace, completing pre-site and on-site safety surveys, full risk assessments and more, so everything runs seamlessly during the shoot.

0 - 400ft Altitude

We can fly from below eye-level, to 400ft in the air, which allows us to do the work of dollies, jibs, and helicopters, with added manoeuvrability, and at a fraction of the cost.

3-axis gimbal

Unparalleled sub-pixel stabilisation for silky smooth footage, and sharp photos, even for in-flight long exposures.

360 Panorama

For truly immersive online content, try our interactive photos, or virtual tours, which capture an entire area in a single finished shot.

Programmable Flights

Allowing us, and you, complete control, and exact repetition of a specific shot, or survey, at a later date.

Night Flights

Special CAA permissions, allows us to fly past sunset or before sunrise, and into the night.


Geo-referenced aerial maps, and a range of high quality 3D models for web content, surveys, or even 3D printing.

2 Person Team

Our prices include a pilot, and camera operator as standard, so we don’t miss a thing.

Various Lenses

Our range of lenses grant a greater variety of shots, from wide angle panoramas to detailed close-ups, and zooms.

Multiple Drones

Different aerial platforms have different specialties, and it’s always important to have a back-up.

Client Monitor

Real time playback available, for instant shot feedback, and peace of mind.

Most of our work involves videography for films, episodic television, real-estate, surveys, and corporate projects. But if you have something else in mind, from special events and weddings, to an epic video of your car, and all that’s in between, we’d love to hear about it.

With flying capabilities of anywhere from below eye-level to 400ft in the air, we can truly multitask, doing the job of a dolly, a jib, and a helicopter.

Ground Video & Photo

For the greatest assortment of shots, we are also fully equipped to provide ground based filming and photography. And ask about our underwater services, if you want to venture below sea-level.

Indoor Flight

Our specialist drones combine visual data and sonar waves for handling the most complex indoor shoots


From basic cuts, to a full post-production service on both video and photography, we have the package that will suit you.

Digital Backups

We back up our data in the field, and retain hard-drive backups of final cuts for 2 years as standard (more on request), so your footage is safe with us.

Aerial photography not only offers some of the most breath-taking, and inspiring imagery available, but also the most useful.

From incredible wedding shots, as only the birds have ever seen them, and portfolio images for tradesmen, to supportive documentary images for surveyors and inspectors, we have the equipment, know-how, qualifications, and creative vision to get the shots you need.



Whilryrig can do the job of a helicopter, jib, dolly, and elevated platform, saving time, money and resources.

We can save tens of thousands of pounds compared to hiring a helicopter.



Whirlyrig can operate so efficiently and flexibly, that we capture more footage in a day than any of the more traditional methods, such as dollys. expensive helicopters, jibs, or elevated platforms.

We can have our system set-up and ready to shoot within minutes.


Whirlyrig mitigates requirement for people to be placed in potentially dangerous situations, such as at height, or in hazardous spaces.

Risk assessments, analysis of location airspace and pre-site and on-site surveys are completed before every operation.

GPS technology and in-built fail-safes in every UAV.


We offer multiple shoot packages to suit you, as well as incorporating standard ground footage where required.

We have highly portable UAV options, meaning that nowhere is too far, remote, or inaccessible for us to fly.

With fully programmable flights we can repeat the exact path of a shot at a later date.

“We offer more versatility than traditional filming methods. We can operate in tight indoor spaces, or outdoors from a couple of feet to 400ft above ground level, as well as replacing jib, crane, and cable cameras.”



Zero carbon emissions, and environmentally friendly compared to most traditional methods.



Our pilots are trained and experienced. We carry worldwide public liability insurance of £5 million, professional indemnity, and more. Most importantly we are licensed and approved by the Civil Aviation Authority, a legal requirement for any commercial UAV activities.
