AERIGON Cinema Drone
AERIGON was the world’s first serially manufactured, six-armed unmanned aerial vehicle designed for professional cinema and broadcast production.
The AERIGON drone pioneered in its field but has now been discontinued. Our first version, The Black Armoured Drone was launched in 2013, and the succeeding AERIGON was sold 2014 – 2017, under our previous company name, Intuitive Aerial.
AERIGON was designed for strength with a lightweight body of prepreg carbon-fiber consisting of a 6 arm helicopter and a stabilized camera gimbal standing on 3 feet. Each helicopter arm has 2 counter-rotating rotors with a proprietary power distribution system providing the power and precision to fly professional camera configurations with pro zoom lenses and full FIZ (Focus, Iris and Zoom) control.
The system demands two operators with the helicopter controlled by a Futaba controller and the camera gimbal by our propitiatory controller, same as the NEWTON series. AERIGONs were shipped worldwide to pilots praising the power and precision of AERIGON in flight while cinematographers and camera operators enjoyed the stability and accuracy of the gimbal’s proprietary control and stabilization system.
Following the demand for gimbals on other platforms, we refined the gimbal technology from AERIGON and in 2016 released the NEWTON stabilized head, which has now been shipped in considerably higher numbers.
