Heliguy Interviews 360 TV

We’ve had a lot of people asking us about regulations around the world and perhaps more than anywhere else, Spain. This obviously makes sense with it being a hugely popular holiday destination for Brits and with the Summer coming up on us again, what better time to get airborne and take some holiday snaps with your drone.

Unsurprisingly, DJI offers their own version of coverage (two as it happens) in the form of DJI Care and DJI Care Refresh. These are solid coverage choices but you need to be careful to read the...

Freefly have stated that it’s, in theory, possible to mount the XL to an aircraft – they haven’t yet made one themselves that’s capable of lifting it. The... Read More

Having used drones in his research since 2007, Patrice is an advocate of their use for research and, in particular, the collection of geographical data.
