our Equipment and Technologies
Blue Sky Vision Media operates a range of remotely piloted aircraft to suit different applications.
Vulcan X8 Triple Redundant Octocopter
Our Vulcan X8 system has been custom built to accommodate the professional film, TV and cinematography sector and is capable of carrying an extensive range of payloads. The craft can be fitted with a range of gimbals and a multitude of cameras, from standard DSLR, through to high-end studio equipment and multi-spectral inspection cameras. The heavy lift aircraft has full triple redundancy systems in flight control, GPS communications with further redundancy in Flight radio Communications, battery power plant management and its propulsion system uses 8 x U10T Motors ensuring even the loss of a motor or propeller midflight will not drastically affect the safe operation of the aircraft . Our X8 Vulcan can lift full pay load of 8 kilograms for 12 to 15 minutes depending on weather conditions and up to 27 minutes flight time with lighter payloads, the versatility and capabilities of the aircraft enable for safe and smooth transition between assignments with the highest degree of redundancy ensuring maximum safety of the payload and people whom may be part of the operation.
Innoflight Stellar X8 Octocopter
Blue Sky Vision Media's midsized aerial platform is the innoflight stellar X8 octocopter, on which we can carry a range of cameras. The Innoflight Stellar X8 airframe is designed to be light weight yet very strong. Its features include full carbon fibre frame, CNC milled aircraft grade aluminium components, highest quality motors and ESCs, retractable landing gears, and fully integrated Jupiter JM-1 flight controller and power distribution board.
Blue Sky Vision Media is an authorised Australian retailer for Innoflight. For those interested in this craft further information can be accessed from our online shop.
DJI Inspire 1
The ever reliable DJI inspire 1 has already become somewhat of a legend in the still young UAV industry. Blue Sky Vision Media operates 2 of these brilliantly designed aircraft and they remain the workhorse of our fleet. The inspire 1, combined with the addition of after-market XOAR carbon fiber propellers gives us the confidence to fly in strong winds and at long range, providing a versatile and robust system.
The DJI X3 12.6 mega pixel camera gives great quality images and up to 4K video footage.
DJI Mavic Pro
The DJI Mavic pro is one of our favourite aerial photographic tools. It flies with almost perfect precision and provides great quality 12.7 mega pixel stills and fantastic 4K video footage. It is also the quietest and least obtrusive drone we use, perfect for situations when stealth is desirable, such as weddings or events.
Connex Long Range Transmission System
Both of our X8 heavy lift platforms stream vision via the Connex long range transmission system. This state of the art system can transmit full 1080P 60FPS HD video. The feed can be linked to pilot, camera operator and director simultaneously with near zero latency. Designed from the ground up specifically for UAV applications, CONNEX packs the performance, form factor, interfaces and reliability required for getting the job done; anywhere, anytime.
