Aerial platforms are rapidly becoming vital tools for businesses looking to more efficiently collect information crucial to their operations. As the first integrated aerial camera with an optical zoom up to 30x and digital up to 6x, the Zenmuse Z30 offers unparalleled image data capture. Enterprises are now able to capture the information they require from a greater range, making image data collection significantly faster and eliminates the risk of harm to both personnel and equipment.
Designed to seamlessly integrate with DJI’s Matrice range, the Zenmuse Z30 works right out of the box and gives access to the intelligent features DJI is known for.
The Zenmuse Z30 is the most powerful integrated aerial zoom camera on the market with 30x optical and 6x digital zoom for a total magnification up to 180x. Whether you are inspecting cell towers or wind turbines, it enables you to get a detailed look at structures, wires, modules and components to detect damage. As a result of letting you conduct inspections from a distance without the need to fly close, not only is speed and efficiency of your operations increased but the risk of collision is obviated.
Adapting the Z30 to your existing Matrice-based aerial system is easy thanks to its integrated design. Simply slide the camera in the mount and you’re ready for take-off. The Zenmuse Z30 is designed for use with DJI Lightbridge 2, breaking technical limits to increase range up to 3.1 miles (5km). The integrated controller and intelligent algorithms set a new standard for wireless HD image transmission by lowering latency and increasing image fidelity.
See below for examples of how the Zenmuse Z30 can be used in an industrial setting:
Inspections: Safer and quicker cell tower inspections with the Zenmuse Z30. Eliminate the need for dangerous manual inspection and the risk of crashing into assets by inspecting from a distance. Stream your footage to a central hub to reduce boots on the ground and ensure no extra trips are needed. Detect fine damages from afar while avoiding damage to personnel and equipment. Set up your aircraft to circle your object of inspection with Point of Interest for a full 360° view of your asset.
Firefighting: First responders can now quickly get an overview of a scene, and use the 30x zoom to drill down for accurate and specific intelligence to base their strategy on. This is perfect for on-site operations management and can be instrumental in the planning and successful deployment of resources from teams on the ground.

Item ordered not in stock but still delivered quickly enough once it was.
Very knowledgeable and friendly people, really helpful for us first time flyers, very competitive prices, I will be using these again.
Buying my first drone, a Mavic Mini, from Heliguy was a delightful experience. From my initial enquiry through to dealing with some technical questions, their responses were always helpful and enthusiastically good humoured. I followed their advice and placed an order. Delivery was so fast I had the very carefully protected parcel in my hands in just a few minutes over 24 hours from ordering. Well done Heliguy - Impressive!
So glad that I found this company , makes life so much easier not having to look anywhere else. Great prices , faultless service , the 'go to' for all drone requirements.

Great to be able to call a company and speak to someone that is interested in answering questions, happy to offer information and left me wanting to interact with them again. Thanks Ben!
From: Simon Sullivan
Having now completed my course I have to say that the support, material and learnings provided by the Heliguy team have been absolutely top notch. The course ended up being online due to the current issues in the UK, but the team were always available to answer questions and provide advice at all times, be it via email, telephone or online chat. At all times the whole team were polite, extremely helpful and extremely knowledgeable about all the issues/topics. I would recommend everyone interested in taking a drone flying course use Heliguy.
From: Jonathan Andrews
Steve has been extremely helpful and an absolute credit to HeliGuy. Highly recommended
From: Paul Maloney
When I made the decision to buy my first drone I did some research on where to buy from and Heliguy came out top based on recommendations and price. I had some questions around my purchase and the process and decided email was the best way for me to ask. The response from Steve was quick and responsive. Not only did he answer my questions with all the necessary information he also provided more information and options for me to make the purchase easier. End result was, with very little effort myself, my new drone was ordered and on my doorstep as fast as I could want.
