Media and entertainment UAVs

Like most drones, media and entertainment drones must carry heavy payloads and be able to stay in the air for as long as possible. Whether on a film set or at a live event, these drones must also be extremely safe and reliable, and they must be as compact as possible to avoid getting in the way of the show or the scene. They carry expensive camera and video equipment that can be interchanged to reconfigure the drone for different functions and venues. This requires providing power to a wide array of equipment, as well as sensors, gimbals, and high-speed communications so no shot is ever missed.
