In the early spring of 2013, two guys in the San Francisco Bay Area strapped a camera to a helicopter and named it Vader. CopterOptics was born that day. Since then, the company has evolved from a small fly-by-night operation with but a single drone, to a much larger fly-by-night operation with a fleet of drones. So not that much has changed really. Except for the long list of AAA clients, the international acclaim, and our overall professionalism and skill level. But really that’s just about it.
With a fleet of custom drone systems, we provide flexible platforms to fly cameras for every situation. Whether it’s a GoPro for a surfing competition, a Nikon d800 for a real estate listing, or a Red EPIC for a Hollywood chase scene; we have a robot for that.
We maintain a full-featured custom carbon fabrication shop with full CAD capabilities. We basically taught machines the fine art of breeding, and now we can’t get them to stop. If you need a custom solution, we have the nerds to build it for you.
Our machines offer a flexible and inexpensive solution for a wide range of applications like surveying, crop management, security, and search and rescue. Contact us to learn more about it. What these things can do would shock you. We don’t eve- oh hey is that LIDAR? Wow that’s cool.
