About Us

Deciding whether to buy your copter Ready to Fly or self-assembled depends on your technical knowledge, available time, and budget. Most professionals who buy their copter to support their craft, such as photographers and video production studios, usually buy Ready to Fly. However, it is always a good idea to have a good foundation of knowledge in order to keep your copter in excellent condition.

We always recommend thorough flight training in order to ensure the safety of you and your copter. We offer a selection of flight training services to  make you completely comfortable flying on your own and to avoid crashes and damages. Our training features the latest technology in order to limit the possibility of accidents and to give you the best flying experience possible.
Choosing which copter is best for you depends on the camera, conditions, and other specifics. If you’re unsure which one will best suite you, contact us and we will be more than glad to help.
We are based in Pismo Beach, California and all of our products ship directly from  the USA. Most items have fast shipping and are free via FedEx, UPS, or USPS. Ready to Fly units ship via FedEx exclusively.

Our Ready to Fly builds are fully configured and balanced, so all you have to do is plug and play. We offer a variety of builds, including Quadrocopter, Hexacopter, and Octocopter. These builds come ready to fly straight at the time of purchase, with no extensive training necessary.

The SkyPirate Gimbal is the future of camera stabilization. It provides cinematic motion that replaces the need for sliders, Steadicams, and boom arms. The gimbal gives you the ability to capture smooth, fluid, and steady footage while being easy-to-use and affordable. All you have to do is plug in and play.

We have first-hand knowledge and experience with all of the products we offer. We use this equipment on location for projects, production shoots, and demonstrations. This gives us the background and skills necessary to help you pick which products best suite your needs and to provide superior customer support.
