A new build and system training centre is here in the North East where we build your BROADCASTER in house for shipping and/or training day *all final configuration of settings performed by yourself. Not many people have our knowledge and experience acquired through tried and tested repeat production (pain and suffering). SkyJib Cinestar System training courses are available so please contact us for itinerary, these courses are not designed for flight training they are for enabling knowledge and understanding of how to configure and setup your machine quicker than if you were to start from scratch. We have great experience in getting the right products on your machine that work well together and our aim is to give you a head start in putting the right components together. SkyJib8 on a wire enabling gimbal configuration in-house for the customers camera, full operation in doors, balancing and camera control setup for every type of camera.  Our training is not theory based we show you how and then you do it in front of us until you are happy you can do it yourself. SkyJib Wire We can even run through DJI waypoint mapping inside by planting GPS units outside our building (as no signal inside) and teach you how to waypoint map before going outside to fly for real.  For windy days we have small rigs with full waypoint installed should we not want to risk your big rig on a windy day. We operate a VAT 407 retail export scheme for companies and individuals to claim back the VAT when they leave the UK after picking up the rig in person which is usually the case when providing training days for none UK residents. Please come and visit us and take a business holiday in Northumberland now, demo appointments available on request (weather permitting for outdoor flight). *Please note we also build smaller machines (final config performed by yourself) for compact camera systems including S800, CX4, XM, F450 and F550. You'll probably find we do things we have not yet advertised so please contact us for anything to do with this area.
