Levitate Aerial Imaging's primary aircraft is the DJI Inspire 1 v2 with high definition and zoom cameras.

The Inspire is the ideal aerial platform: powerful, flexible with great stability and the latest drone technology meaning we can undertake most assignments with ease.

  • once airborne the landing gear raises to provide a full 360 unobstructed camera view

  • the Inspire's position is constantly updated and recoded using the GLONASS and GPS satellite systems, providing great control and reliability

  • the Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) incorporates a 6-axis gyroscope and an acceleromter to monitor tiny changes in movement, enabling the aircraft to compensate and adjust and hold position

The Zenmuse X3 camera shoots video at up to 4Kp30 or 1080p60 and takes 12 megapixel still photographs, while the 20mm focal length provides a surprisingly wide angle but with no fish-eye look.

We also operate a Zenmuse Z3 zoom camera, which means we can obtain high definition close-ups of hard-to-reach areas, particularly when it's not possible or safe to fly close to the target structure. 


The gimbal uses data from the intelligent flight controller to keep the camera perfectly level, producing great video and photographs.

Compliance & training

Levitate Aerial Imaging has a Permission for Commercial Operation (PfCO) from the Civil Aviation Authority, required for all commercial drone operators.
