Bespoke Product Development

HECTIC can design and produce intelligent modules that solve specific problems for customers. Examples include maintaining the centre of gravity for large cameras on three-axis gimbals, data-amalgamation boards from multiple sensors into a single data stream and smart landing pads for accurate landing in confined locations.

Custom Sensor Integration

HECTIC can design and produce custom mounting, carrying and power solutions for custom payloads on all DJI drones. These solutions can use external batteries or take power from the drones and can be mounted using specially-designed brackets made from metal or plastic, depending on the payload. In the past, we have integrated a Parrot Sequoia multispectral sensor into an M200 series drone and large communications payloads onto a DJI Wind 8.

UAV Workflow Consultancy

HECTIC can design and produce tools that aid pilots to reduce ground time in jobs, perform maintenance on their drones and keep their equipment healthy. These tools include custom storage solutions and drone-cleaning kits.


Heliguy helped our Geomatics Group to choose and purchase the SUAs that are suitable for the group’s current and forthcoming research projects. The Heliguy employees have shown high expertise and great willingness to design mounting solutions of different sensor payloads.

Using our many years of experience and expertise in the UAV industry, our dedicated and knowledgeable technicians have launched this invaluable consultancy to provide tailor-made products and hardware and software integrations.
HECTIC - which stands for Heliguy Electronics and Custom Technology Integration Centre - is our specialised research and development arm, which can be used to turn people’s ideas into reality. 
So, if you have a solution to a problem in mind, but do not know how to produce it, that’s where HECTIC comes in.

Here to Help

HECTIC already has a track record of helping clients in need and coming up with novel ideas to fix a problem.
Experienced drone pilot Oliver Sugars purchased a DJI Inspire 2 with DJI Zenmuse X7 camera and lens set from Heliguy for a two-week trip to Jordan, to film scenes for a National Geographic documentary.
Before setting off, he asked Heliguy to create a tool to enable him to utilise the hot swappable function of the Inspire 2. 
HECTIC set to work and created this very device. And it came in so useful, the bespoke tool has earned a permanent place on Olly’s belt when he is working. 
The hot-swappable tool is now available to buy from us.

I asked Heliguy to create a tool to enable me to utilise the hot swoppable function of the Inspire 2. I put the tool on a retractable key ring. It came in so useful that the tool has earned a permanent place on my belt when I’m working.

HECTIC Project Step-by-Step Guide

1) You have an idea or requirement for a project.
2) Contact us and a phone call is set up with our technicians to discuss the project requirements.
3) The project proposal/feasibility study is developed and a follow-up discussion is held to thrash out the details. A mutual agreement is then signed by both the client and Heliguy.
4) The project begins, with periodic reports produced to keep you updated on the progress of your project.
5) Once the functional prototype is complete, you can test the solution Heliguy have produced to make sure the concept is being delivered upon. You can then decide whether to move forward to the next phase.
6) Once the final product is completed, HECTIC will ask you to write a report on your experience using HECTIC and any changes you would wish to see in future projects.
