Apex Helicopters uses the Robinson R44 helicopter for our photo and video needs. This aircraft is the perfect blend of performance and economy, which in turn means we can get the same job done for less. The Robinson R44 has a four-seat configuration with the ability to remove any one door or all four if desired. The aircraft is equipped with onboard 12-volt DC power source to keep electronics running on longer jobs.

Gyro Stabilized Camera Mount

After years of shooting with various camera stabilizers, we set out to develop our own system tailored to our aircraft and specific mission. What we came up with was a system that out performed the competition in every aspect. Our platform consists of the newest gyro stabilization technology to produce that smooth, high quality aerial footage that has become the staple in today’s media production industry. Best of all, we own this system and have it available at a moments notice for rental.
