Professional Aerial cinematography equipment


High-end drone equipment for film productions

At Kiwi we always try to innovate whenever possible. We’ve built most of our drones in-house as we think knowing our equipment is key when flying a professional camera setup with Alexa mini or RED cameras. As innovation is our passion we were lucky enough to serve our clients with a great range of self-built drones and camera rigs.

On this page, you can read all about the Kiwi drones, cameras and custom options to match your production.

Kiwi Cameras

Because every production is different we offer a wide range of drones to fit all aerial requests. We have drones capable of flying a ARRI or RED camera as well as two Inspire 3 drones with the X9 camera. For the X9 camera, we offer all available lenses in the package. Depending on the setup when flying a cinema camera we can lift around 3-4kg of lens weight. The total camera package has a maximum of 8kg. This is without the gimbal.

Eartec headset

We always bring four Eartec headsets to our productions. This way the drone team can communicate with each other and the DoP even if they are far apart and or there is a lot of noise.


We always bring a 21″ monitor + 7″ wireless DoP monitor. It shows the aerial shot so the director can give feedback while in the air.

– Our bigger drones like the X8 and Matrice600 offer a wide variety of camera options. We would love to hear which camera you need for your Aerial production so we can tell you our related options.

In our workshop in Amsterdam, we are always creating new custom gear for crazy video productions. There are no boundaries in your request so let us know what you need and we will build it like this unique working coffee drone.

This custom build helicopter rig contains 3 RED Monstro cameras for a 22K resolution in a 310-degrees angle.
