Aerosight started back in 2011 when its founder and R/C pilot Dean Wynton built his very first drone. Constructed from parts found online and the local hardware store the decision was made to add a triggering circuit for a small camera to take aerial photos of the local town and Dean sent the photos to the local newspaper to publish.
After publishing numerous aerial images, Dean was approached by professional cameraman Tony May who suggested he built a larger version to carry a better quality DSLR camera, suitable for TV and Film work.
Dean was inspired and set about building his next drone which was considerably larger and more stabilised than his previous three motored version. This new drone had eight motors and carried high quality cameras such as the Canon 5D on a stabilised gimbal. This bespoke drone made numerous appearances in the press at which point Aerosight was born. The CAA (Civil Aviation Authority) were approached and a commercial drone pilots licence obtained at which point the sky became the limit for all manner of quality drone work including ground breaking projects such as the Domino’s Pizza delivery and Betfair’s £5k parachute drop.
