How do you film with a drone?

The drones we use at Lensmen have a camera affixed to them which allow us to record video. The pilot has a screen which alerts them what is in shot of the drone and what will be in the video.

Lensmen always has two members of our drone team on shots, pilots who operate the drone and a spotter who keeps the drone within line of sight and alerts pilots to anything that may interfere with the flight path.

Our pilots and operators/spotter are fully qualified, approved and have been licensed by the Irish Aviation Authority (IAA). They are licensed to operate commercially in the Republic of Ireland and have aerial work permission to conduct commercial operations using drone/UAV’s.
