Vermont Drone’s Fleet

Vermont Drone flies more than a dozen custom modified versions of the following multirotor aircraft:

  • Custom Professional Hexacopters and Octocopters

    810mm Professional Hexacopter

    We have two six propeller and one eight propeller RC multicopters which are able to support take-off weights of up 16.5 pounds and 32 pounds respectively. They can be quickly modified to carry all types of payloads. Each features two operator capability allowing our experienced pilots to concentrate on flying, while our professional photographers focus on the photography/cinematography.

    Each are fitted with a custom built 3-axis (3D), dampened and stabilized gimbal which can mount any one of our professional Hasselblad medium format cameras, Nikon or Sony Full Frame cameras, Nikon or Sony APS-C Frame cameras, Sony or Samsung mirrorless cameras, a professional RED camera, or a Flir thermal camera. The cameras can be fitted with professional lenses weighing up to several pounds. This includes, but is not limited to, an image stabilized 15-60mm zoom lens or a 10mm f/3.5, 14mm f/2.8, 24mm f/1.4, 30mm f/2.8, 35mm f/1.4, or 50mm f/1.4 prime lens.

    Currently, our prefered camera is the award-winning Samsung NX1 Mirrorless Digital Camera because of its professional-grade video and photo output. The NX1 is built around an incredibly ahead of it’s time 28.2MP BSI APS-C CMOS sensor that not only produces high-resolution images, but also 4K video at 24, UHD at 30, and full 1080p HD video at up to 60. We worked with Samsung during its development and testing and wrote an iOS app in house which can access and manipulate every single setting and control remotely.

  • DJI Inspire 1 Pro with Dual Remotes

    inspireraw1

    The Inspire 1 Pro is a four-propeller RC helicopter for professional photographers and cinematographers. We own several DJI Inspire 1 Pros and use them for shooting video and making still photographs.

    They are the workhorses of our fleet due to their professional feature set, extreme agility, quick preflighting, long flight time, and flexibility. Each features unobstructed 360° capture. Its two operator capability allows our experienced pilot to concentrate on flying and our professional photographer to focus on the photography/cinematography. We can fly them indoors or out, even in higher wind conditions.

    Each can be outfitted with one of our new Professional 4K/16 MP MFT (Micro Four Thirds) Cameras. This camera features an amazing 12.8 stops of dynamic range. It is stabilized and controlled with an integrated 3-axis (3D) gimbal. The X5 Pro Camera can natively record video in 4K (4096x2160p; higher resolution than Full HD) at 24/25, 3840x2160p at 25/30, 2704×1520 at 25/30, or at 1080p at 24/25/30/48/50/60. It can also capture high-quality, high resolution 16 megapixel, Adobe DNG RAW still photographs.

    Each can fly with one of our Leica 15mm (30mm equivalent) f/1.7 professional lenses, an Olympus 12mm (24mm) f/2.0 professional lens, Olympus M.Zuiko 14-42mm (28-84mm) f/3.5-5.6 zoom lens, Olympus M.Zuiko Digital 25mm (50mm) f/1.8 professional lens, or an Olympus M.Zuiko 45mm (90mm) f1.8 professional lens. Additional professional lenses will be added to our inventory as soon as software support for them has been added to the X5 Camera.
