Our Story

Having trained as commercial helicopter pilots, we are well aware of the substantial costs involved in maintaining one. This makes doing aerial photography from a conventional helicopter very expensive and inefficient.

APS set ourselves a goal – to devise a new way of taking aerial photography – without resorting to conventional methods.

It had to be:

  • Environmentally friendly
  • Safe
  • Cost effective
  • Economically viable for now and the future
  • Revolutionary in design and function
  • A totally unique approach

And … achieve amazing results.

When you consider what’s required to take an aerial photograph (a camera in the air), it seems crazy to put a 1000+ kg of helicopter, equipment and personnel into the air to achieve a photograph from a camera that weighs a few kilos.  Therefore, our challenge was to find a smarter way to put the camera into the air.

After many years of intensive research, R&D and travelling the world seeking the most advanced technology available, we found the Microdrone systems. Our Microdrones don’t just achieve amazing results, they’re also paving the way for a greener future.
