  • Accidental harm to property caused by our drone

DB Drone Services is headed up by David Ballantyne, who previously worked in outside broadcasting for BBC, Sky and ITV, on a range of sports and entertainment shows.

Our equipment

We use the DJI Inspire 2, one of the leading drones on the market. It’s packed with numerous cutting-edge technologies including a dual battery set up, which prolongs flight time, the ability to go from 0–50 mph in just 5 seconds, a self-heating feature so it can fly in low temperatures and an obstacle avoidance system.

We use the Zenmuse X5S camera, which gives Hollywood-grade video, and supports up to eight professional lenses. It means they can be swapped out depending on the project, and this gives us more control over the final shot.

And we use the CrystalSky monitor which features an ultra-bright screen that’s clearly visible in sunlight, and works seamlessly with the DJI app, giving our drone pilots total control over each project.
