Dear all,

 

For a dance film we want to do some flying shots over the salt lakes in Bolivia this winter. 

 

I am currently looking for companies that will be able to place a Dragon (plus superspeeds) on a drone. 

Minimal height will be 3500m.

 

Does anyone know any aerial companies based in South-America? We can obviously fly them in from anywhere, but prefer them to be based in South America.

 

Any tips are welcome!!

 

Thank you,

R.

That's a minimal height of about 11500 ft.  That's high!

Hang on, you mean 3.5km from sea level? (excuse my geographical ignorance of Bolivia) - or 3.5km above the salt lake?

 

Balloon ?

Hi all, I work with Rugzo on this production.

Bolivia Uyuni is 3400m above sea level. There, we want to fly simply 40m up max. So it should be fairly easy. 1st week of Dec, summertime (0 to 26 degrees) on the largest salt landscape in the world, beautiful!

We're looking nog for a DLSR hexacopter, but for an Octocopter that can fly a Scarlet or RED dragon.

Let us know if you're in the area (Bolivia / South America): ruben@westframe.com

Everything else equal air density approx 65% that of sea level ...
