The best seats in the house were out of reach, until now.

Drones have revolutionised the way moments are captured, and whether corporate or private, Whirlyrig covers all types of one-off and special events.

We can create the ultimate, fantasy wedding video, including breath-taking aerial shots of the venues, and the too often overlooked comings and goings that make up your special day.

Get the most out of your corporate, music or sporting event with marketing and recap videos, including aerial footage that will make people sit up and take notice. We can even provide a zero-latency live feed for social media, or for broadcast at the event itself, in staggering 4k quality.

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.
