Kiwi Aerial Shots is a Dutch drone company filming all over the country and Europe and we can arrange your aerial shots from A to Z in the city of Rotterdam. We are a fully SPECIFIC certified drone company with an approved EASA operational manual. With these papers, we can fly our drones in the city center of Rotterdam for your film production. We have to apply for our drone flights five days in advance at the international airport Rotterdam the Hague. On sight, we have to work with a so-called RT operator. This is an additional certified person for our drone team who is in direct contact with Air traffic control. This is done through a radio and a 10m high antenna. We also inform the local authorities about our drone production in Rotterdam so we are not bothered during the shoot. We can tell you all about our drone services and regulations when we know where in the city and what you want to film. If you want we can share our experience of all the beautiful film locations in Rotterdam so definitely knock our door.
With our papers, we can fly all sorts of drones in the city of Rotterdam and at our Kiwi Aerial Shots workshop we have all kinds of different types of professional equipment for any production.
One of the drones we use mostly in Rotterdam is the DJI Inspire 3 with X9 camera. This drone gives us a fast workflow and is relatively safe to fly as it is “only” 4KG. The X9 camera offers a full-frame sensor for 8K footage at 25fps. We can film in ProressRAW, CinemaDNG, or H264. this camera comes with all the lenses possible which are 18, 24, 35, and 50mm. Read more about our Inspire drone services on our Dutch drone service page.
When a bigger film production comes to Rotterdam we often fly our Condor Heavy-lift drone. This is a drone like the Alta-X but more sufficient for the European market. This has to do with the maximum take-off weight we can fly in Europe, namely 25KG. Our Condor drone flies the Ronin 2 pro gimbal and we usually fly our own ARRI Alexa MINI which is completely insured through us. With this drone and camera, we can fly the bigger cinema PRIME lenses.

At Kiwi Aerial Shots we also have our FPV specialists for professional FPV drone shots in Rotterdam. Actually, our main FPV pilot lives right next to the Euromast in the city center of Rotterdam. For our FPV drone production in Rotterdam we fly the naked Gopro 12, Black Magic, a Freefly Ember setup, or our FPV with Zenmuse X7 gimbal setup. Our FPV drone teams in Rotterdam always come in a team of three. A certified FPV drone pilot, a spotter, and the RT operator for direct contact with air traffic control. More info about these FPV drones can be found on our FPV drone service page.
As we are a professional drone company we come with a bit more equipment than just our drones. We arrange the whole drone production in Rotterdam, from certification to contacting local authorities. Next to the drones we always bring a full backup set, drone + camera, so we are sure we can finish the production, whatever happens. We bring a 21″ monitor plus a 7″ wireless monitor for the director and DoP. We have 4 headsets for communication between our team and the 1AD and in our own Kiwi van we can charge our batteries endlessly so we can keep on making awesome drone shots.
