Feature Films

We have experience with both large scale studio pictures and small independent productions. Working closely with directors and cinematographers, we ensure our shots fit tonally within the overall film to maximise production value. If there is a VFX component, we work closely with VFX supervisors to ensure our plate shots accurately hit the mark.

For large studio productions, we suggest considering our Turbine X8. This ultra heavy lift drone (a Heliguy exclusive) can lift up to 40kg. That’s a dual camera configuration. It’s also enough to fly anamorphic or zoom lenses. And with less wind gust than other heavy lift drones, the Turbine X8 can fly above debris, water and smoke leaving a minimal physical footprint.

Drone Cinematography is an ideal way for television producers to increase production value by including an aerial element as part of their shoot. Whether it be used as an establisher or as a story-telling device, Heliguy is confident we’ll be able to get the shot you need, when you need it.

With our signature Heliguy Orientation Control System, our drones come with a triple GPS monitoring system. Post-flight telemetry data is available for productions, detailing the speed, distance and duration of each flight in half-second increments. It’s an invaluable tool for post-vis, VFX and post-production workflow, allowing teams to accurately track the camera position and angle frame-by-frame. This ensures your VFX team has accurate data, reducing some of the costs associated with environment builds and post-vis placement on both hero and plate shots.

Recent VFX-focused feature film credits include Peter Rabbit, Bleeding Steel and Alien: Covenant.

The Turbine X8 is Heliguy’s newest addition to the fleet. Capable of lifting a whopping 15kg, this ultra heavy lift drone is perfect for large scale productions utilising heavy lens packages, or clients that require dual camera configurations. If any drone can replicate those expensive helicopter shots for a fraction of the price – it’s this one.

Big and Fast

This drone is surprisingly fast for its size. We’ve clocked the Turbine X8 at speeds of 110km per hour, making it an ideal high speed tracking tool.

Stable Yet Agile

In the hands of our exceptionally skilled FPV Pilots, the Turbine X8’s dexterity is inexhaustible. Coupled with Heliguy’s unique Orientation Control System, we are confident the Turbine X8 can hit its mark every time. Even in high winds and over difficult terrain. This makes the Turbine X8 one of the most reliable drones on the market.

Staying Power

Our in-house engineers have developed Heliguy’s unique Regenerative Power System – allowing us to maximise battery usage and keep the drone in the air for longer. With an impressive 30 mins of flying time, the Turbine X8 helps filmmakers get the most out of each setup.

The Reliance X8 is our most popular drone. And there’s no wonder – the Reliance X8 is the result of Heliguy’s best-of-breed engineering, giving our clients a range of unique on-set options. This drone can lift up to 25kg, enough to fly an extensive number if cinema camera and lens combinations. It’s also fast, agile, and leaves a small physical footprint.

Dependable

Capable of carrying most digital cameras on the market, the Reliance X8 is a favourite among filmmakers for its stability and reliability. This drone can fly reliably in high winds. It is also agile enough to fit in and around difficult locations. Without doubt, this drone always hits the mark.

Adaptable

The Reliance X8 is quite simply an over-achiever. As one of our most adaptable drones, the Reliance X8 can be customised by our engineers to achieve the shot you need. The Reliance X8 has flown through the jungles of South America, mimicking the actions of wildlife… she has panned beautifully across the sails of the Sydney Opera House for hero moments… and she has delivered accurate telemetry data of steady plate shots of rural locations.

The DJI M600 is one of our more compact drones. With a small physical footprint, this drone can be packed into a small case or backpack for easy transport to difficult, hard-to-reach locations. In fact, the DJI M600 was recently customised to fly into active volcanos in Indonesia.

Compact

Requiring only a small physical footprint, the DJI M600 can be easily packed and transported. Whether your shoot is in a remote Australian location or an overseas destination, this drone can easily be transported to location and quickly set-up for use.

Going the Distance

The DJI M600 has real lasting power… over 30mins battery life, in fact. Couple that with an impressive range of 5km, and the DJI M600 is an ideal tool for filmmakers to achieve extensive establishers of difficult terrain. That’s why, when we were asked to film across the top of active volcanos in Indonesia, we brought the DJI M600 with us.

The Inspire 2 is our smallest drone, but don’t let that fool you. This drone is fast… nearly 120km/hr fast. As the lightest drone in our fleet, the Inspire 2 is also super transportable and ideal for shoots who are budget-conscious. For those nervous about production costs – start here. The affordability of the Inspire 2 coupled with our highly skilled Heliguy crew is a production value that is hard to beat.

Affordable

The Inspire 2 is our most cost-effective, making it an ideal option for smaller budgets. Nervous about how much an aerial moment might cost? Fear not. This drone makes that sexy aerial achievable. Together with our highly skilled Pilots, the Inspire 2 will make you wonder how you ever managed without top-notch aerials before.

Client Friendly

Not only is the Inspire 2 light, it has the smallest footprint of all our drones. That means less bump-in and bump-out time. It also means a smaller Heliguy crew to manage. So if you are looking for a minimal crew or a quick guerilla unit… consider the movability of the Inspire 2.
