Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

Opti-cal are pleased to be able to offer UAV’s from the market leading manufacturer DJI. The DJI range has something for everyone from amateur enthusiasts to professional operators. Opti-cal will be focusing on the Inspire 1 Pro and Matrice 600 models which we believe offer fantastic value for money and simplicity of use.

The right UAV for you will be defined by what you aim to achieve with it.

The DJI Inspire 1 Pro is the perfect UAV for pilots looking to fly smaller sites. The Inspire comes equipped with up to 4 batteries which allow around 1 hour of flight and has a range of HD cameras and sensors which can be easily swapped.

For more advanced users the DJI Matrice 600 might be the better option. The UAV carries 6 batteries on board and can take a much heavier payload along with the potential to upgrade the on board GNSS. The Matrice 600 can support your choice of DSLR or be paired with a Hasselblad A5D aerial camera for the ultimate in UAV imagery.

Both the Inspire 1 Pro and Matrice 600 can be operated by two people. The pilot can concentrate on flying safely while the camera can be operated separately on a second controller both using real time video feed and flight telemetry.

To legally fly a small unmanned aerial system in the UK the Operator is legally required to hold a Permission for Commercial Operations (PfCO) from the UK Civil Aviation Authority (CAA). Before a PfCO is issued the Operator must write and have approved an Operations Manual. Also any pilots who are to fly for that Operator must hold a CAA approved NQE issued qualification demonstrating their operating competence and flying capability.
