  3. Maintaining awareness of manned aircraft operations and remaining a safe distance with zero interference, avoiding obstacles at all times.
  4. Maintaining a safe of 25ft or more from unprotected persons, moving vehicles and vulnerable property.
  5. Awareness of ‘No fly Zones’ within a 5 mile radius of airports and mandatory contact with control towers in case of closer proximity.
  6. Hazardous weather conditions are unacceptable for any and all Overhead Films flights including, but not limited to, high winds, reduced visibility and rain.
  7. Maintaining a zero tolerance policy for alcohol and drug intoxication.
  8. No flights to be held in close proximity to sensitive infrastructures or properties including, but not limited to, power stations, water treatment facilities, correctional facilities, heavily traveled roadways and government facilities.

Our drones are fully equipped with built-in Fail Safe Procedures and GPS Technology to ensure safety. In the case of unfortunate circumstances where control signal is lost for more than 3 seconds, the drone will automatically fly back to the operators “Home” coordinates where it initially lifted off the ground.

Indoor Flying

Our quadcopters come with state-of-the-art Vision Positioning Technology that ensures steady position holding even when the GPS is unavailable allowing for smooth and safe indoor shooting.

Built-in sensors determine it’s very location and altitude. These perceptive features guarantee a safe indoor flight.
