The Organisation...

Sky Cam East are an aerial imaging company based in Suffolk.

Our background is in professional photography and video, with a passion for flight. Ultimately it is image quality that is important and therefore our expertise in this area enables us to render high quality fully processed material from the vantage point of a professional aerial platform.

We are BNUC certified and are fully accredited by the Civial Aviation Authority with full permissions to carry out our aerial activities – including permissions for night time operations. Naturally we are also fully insured to five million pounds of public liability.

We have great confidence you will be delighted with our aerial media.

Sky Cam East is operated by 44.1 Creative Ltd.

We fly small size UAVs – Unmanned Aerial Vehicles – for aerial photography.

By utilising the latest technologies our fleet of UAVs have a relatively low running and repair costs. This is how we are able to offer such competitive pricing.

All of our craft are under GPS guidance, are programmable from the ground and include a range of safety features. Our cameras produce up to 4k resolution video and are stabilised by 3 axis gimbals.

We are licensed and accredited by the CAA.

We fly up to 400 feet from take off point – as per current UK regulations.

There are a number of areas that would prevent flying – Airports, aircraft corridors, power cables and where the craft may present a hazard however the vast majority of the sky is available to us!

As a safety measure and in keeping with our licencing we maintain line of sight with the craft at all times.

We are happy to advise as to the suitability of your project for aerial filming.

Weather is the biggest influence on aerial filming – it goes without saying.

It is essential that flexibility is built into filming times to allow re-schedules due to weather. Rain, thunder storms, strong winds and fog would all rule out flying.

Whilst the majority of days do turn out to suitable for flying it always make sense to check a five day forecast prior to booking aerial filming.

Thankfully temperature is rarely a concern since the craft are quite happy within the average UK temperature range.

Our Aircraft...

The Inspire 2 Pro is our go to work horse.

Offering incredible stability – even in strong wind – the Inspire 2 brings the latest UAV technology to bear on the aerial imaging industry.

Safety is paramount with redundant batteries, a host of collision avoidance sensors, geo-limits – which prevent the aircraft from flying near sensitive areas, and multiple location receptors.

Image quality is courtesy of the X5S Micro four thirds camera mounted on a 3 axis gimbal. Interchangeable lenses and full control of the camera parameters enable silky smooth cinematic UHD video and crystal sharp high resolution RAW images.

Our Inspire 2 has twin controllers for cinematicly complex work that allows the pilot to concentrate on the aircraft while the camera operator achieves the desired shot.

Flight time is around 20 minutes, top speed is 58mph and setup time is around 3 minutes.


The Inspire represented a huge development in UAVs when it was launched in 2015.

It offered many of the things that all drones have now, for the first time. It carries a micro four thirds camera on a 3 axis gimbal producing very pleasing results in both images and video.

The lenses are interchangeable and ours includes a second controller for maximum cinematic results.

Flight time is around 12 minutes and set up time 3 minutes.


The Mavic 2 Pro is a remarkable aircraft.

Building on the success of the Mavic 1, the latest ‘Mav’ sports a Hasselblad camera, three axis gimbal and a flight time of 25 minutes.

Stability for such a small aircraft is incredible. Whilst image quality is not quite up to the spec of the Inspire 2, it produces highly desirable images and video.

Because of the size, low noise and manoeuvrability we use ours on many of the news gathering jobs we carry out such as fires – where seconds matter. It is packed with collision sensors to assist when the pressure is on.

Flight time is 25 minutes and set up around 1 minute.


When the Mavic launched in 2017 there was disbelieve with what it could do.

A tiny aircraft with remarkable stability, excellent image quality and very quiet. It quickly became our turn to aircraft in news situations where ‘getting the shot’ is crucial. A drone that could get in the air in seconds and still produce the goods is the news person’s dream!

Carrying a tiny camera on a 3 axis gimbal, the results are comparatively stunning. Stable 4K UHD video and sharp RAW images from an aircraft that fits in your pocket still amazed us!

Flight time is around 18 minutes and set up time less than one minute.

Mavic Pro

The DJI Phantom was truly revolutionary.

Launched in 2013 it put high quality aerial photography in the hands of everyday people. There have been four versions of it now and each time it has improved radically.

We rarely us ours these days but she’s always around just in-case – and she is responsible for launching our business in 2014.

Flight time is 6 minutes and setup time around 5 minutes.
