Are you or someone you know planning a wedding? We can help capture those special memories! See the video below for an example of what we could do for an outdoor wedding. Having an indoor wedding? We still have options for you. We can capture the newly married couple exiting the church or courthouse and all the other events going on outside. Another service we can provide is to capture video of the engaged couple as they do things they love to do together--and we can create a video montage for the wedding reception. Let us know if we can help! For information, call Rodney or Cheri at (309) 369-7067.

65%  Night operation, 35%  Operations over people, 19%  BVLOS Operations, 9%  Operations from a moving vehicle and Perational Limitation

5 Tips For Completing
An Epic Shot


1.  Check your Micro SD card and your Gimbal  Angle - use your Drone's gimbal pitch control to tilt your camera down slightly.
2.  Shoot flat for better footage - shoot in the RAW setting.
3.  Use lens filters to improve your Ariel Video - To adjust to ambient light with the fixed aperture the camera automatically accelerates it's shutter speed.
4.  Take Advantage of Light during the Golden Hour - The width of your fist is about 10 degrees Place your first knuckle on the horizon.
5.  The Litchi App costs money but it makes orbits easy - This orbit feature lets you determine the specifics for your shot in the app before the drone takes off.
