Our team of established pilots and operators utilise over 11 years of experience to make using heavylift drones easy, no matter the production, location or payload.

Our true experience and expertise lies in Heavylift drone filming. We’re one of the most established and best performing teams in the industry, consistently working on high end productions with extremely talented and demanding clients.

We pride ourselves in our safety record. Fleye hold an OSC operating permission from the CAA meaning we can fly both heavy and light lift drones as close as 10m from public, buildings and vehicles that are not under our direct control. This opens up a world of opportunities for city centre aerial filming and makes productions life easier requiring smaller lock offs, fewer marshals and fewer permissions resulting in saving time and money.

You dream it, we shoot it.

We’re trusted by many top DP’s who admire our unique ability to ‘get the shot’ first time, saving on wasted time in often time constrained productions.

Wherever, Whenever.

We are also very well equipped for filming in all kinds of environments. We’re able to pack up very small and travel light if needs be, we truly can mould to suit your style of shooting to ensure the best possible results for you and your crew.

Our industry leading equipment has been specifically designed and purchased to suit a wide variety of filming needs... We're able to carry payloads up to 16kg on our super heavy lift Alta X and Ronin 2, 9kg on our Alta 8 with Movi Pro or we can fly for 25 minutes using our ALTA 6 and FX3 set up and hike up mountains with our DJI Inspire 3 drones making us truly adaptable to and filming environment you can throw at us. Our tools are there to be used and we use them well!


From super heavylift drones, carrying cameras such as Sony Venice, Arri 35 or RED Raptor, or our own Arri Alexa Mini, to smaller lightweight packages we have a solution for every environment & budget. Here's some of our key equipment used for our every day filming around the world.

Freefly Alta X Heavylift Aircraft

Our main workhorse is the Freefly Alta X heavylift drone which will fly up to a maximum weight of 35kg and a usable payload of around 16kg. This gives us the option of flying the fantastic DJI Ronin 2 gimbal system which has an impressive payload capability and allows us to fly a wide variety of different cameras. Popular options include the Sony Venice 1 and 2, Alexa Mini LF or RED DSMC2 camera bodies with a variety of different glass.

Key stats:
Max take off weight: 34.9kg
Max usable payload: 16kg
Light flight time: 26 minutes
Heavy flight time: 12 minutes
Minimum separation from public: 20m

Freefly Alta 8 Heavylift Aircraft

Equally important to our heavylift drone filming range is the Freefly Alta 8. This exceptionally relable aircraft has been working on sets across the world since it's launch back in 2016 providing highly accurate and safe aerials every time. This 8 rotor drone gives great redundancy and an extra element of precise control for the pilot given it's extra control surfaces over the Alta X. This comes at a cost to flight time, however, if accurate positioning is the key priority this aircraft performs every time.

Key stats:
Max take off weight: 18.1kg
Max usable payload: 8.6kg
Light flight time: 14 minutes
Heavy flight time: 7 minutes
Minimum separation from public: 10m
