FAQs

Here are some frequently asked questions. If your question isn't below, please feel free to get in touch and we will be happy to help.

DO YOU NEED A LICENSE TO FLY A UAV?

Yes! The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) assess every commercial UAV drone operator through their BNUC-S license scheme, before issuing a license to conduct commercial aerial video & photography work. The BNUC-S training course provides the licensed UAV operator with the necessary skills to be able to conduct this type of work in a safe and controlled manner and safety is taken seriously. Operators have to submit an Operations Manual, which details how you will conduct your work. The Manual has to be approved by the CAA before a license is issued. Over and Above Media are covered by £5 million public liability insurance. UAV operators can only get insurance if they have a CAA license and BNUC-S certificate.

CAN YOU FLY IN RAIN AND WIND?

We can’t fly in the rain as this affects the electronics in our equipment especially the camera; any water on the camera lens will ruin the media capture. We can fly safely in wind speeds up to 18mph. Anything more is beyond the UAV’s safety working limits. The wind does not affect the footage captured due to the incredible stability of the camera gimbal.

WHAT FORMAT FILES CAN YOU SUPPLY?

Video is captured in AVCHD or MP4 format UP TO 4K.

Photographs are captured in JPEG and RAW format.

CAN YOU FLY ANYWHERE?

No! The CAA issue rules to ensure safety to the public . We are bound by these rules as part of our license conditions. This Permission is granted subject to the following conditions, namely, that the said aircraft shall not be flown: Above a height of 400 ft.  Over or within 150 metres of an open air assembly of more than 1000 persons. Over or within 50 metres of persons, structure or vessel not under our control. In a built up area, town or settlement. In a manner that could cause an accident.

It may also be that you are in a geographical area that we are unable to fly in, due to restrictions, please check with us first. Please give us as much detail as you can. Although these rules may seem restrictive, we can fly closer to people and property if they are under our control in accordance with our operating procedures.

HOW LONG CAN YOU FLY FOR?

Each flight lasts up to 18 minutes and we generally carry around ten batteries per aircraft and we bring chargers with us.

CAN YOU FLY INDOORS?

Yes we can though naturally we require a fairly spacious room to fly in. When we operate indoors we are not subject to the rules and regulations placed upon us by the C.A.A. however a discussion needs to be had regarding insurance.

WHAT ARE YOU COSTS AND TERMS?

Costs vary according to the nature and location of the job. We give some ballpark figures and our full T&Cs in our Rates + Terms PDF document.

We are good at

Providing media for a wide variety of clients, including TV and film footage, viral films for online brands, corporate promotional videos, property vendors, sport development, commercials, industrial applications and events. As a result of all this experience, we deliver a better service to you!
