The eight-motor drone, rechargeable batteries, camera body, lens, and gimbal: Up to 18 kg (40 lbs.) had to be maneuvered steadily through the air-down narrow

alleys and amid flocks of birds, past low-hanging power lines and in the most varied of wind conditions. That is why Skynamic always works in twos on set.

A pilot flies the drone, while a camera operator controls the gimbal and concentrates on the shot. The images result from well-practiced communication between

the two. Depending on the setup, a drone can stay in flight for between six and 15 minutes.
