About LA CopterCam

LA coptercam is a Louisiana Drone Video and Film company that technically started over seven years ago. When the vision of providing high production value at low cost through radio control planes and helicopters became a viable and realistic option for the entertainment and real estate industries. With over 20 years of flying experience and the ever-expanding technology of both smaller and lighter cameras, experimentation began for low-cost aerial photography. After a sufficient period of research and development, the decision was made in 2007 to purchase large-scale gas powered helicopters, capable of lifting 12 pound cameras.
While the helicopters supplied a WOW factor, the quality of footage was never satisfactory due to the size of the engine on a single rotor platform. Using a piston engine, vibration isolation became a full time job, and after 3 years and 5 helicopters, all the gas platforms were scrapped and the slate was wiped clean. With technology advancing in the electronic world and the ability to have GPS, waypoint navigation, and other safety features never available with gas, a custom octocopter was built and modified to get the footage you see today. LACopterCam, LLC officially launched in 2012, and has been committed ever-since to expanding it’s fleet and keeping up with the technical demands of the film industry.
