Ikarus Super Lift Helicopter - Easily supports DSLR Cameras (Canon 5D MKIII) and can take a RED Epic Camera This is built to order, please allow 3-4 week lead time on this product


The Ikarus Super Lift Helicopter is a purpose built 8 bladed Helicopter desigend for the Film and Broadcast industry, the Ikarus will quite happily carry a DSLR Camera such as the Canon 5D MK111 with lens and with a few modifications to the gimbal even carry a RED Epic. The Ikarus will also be ready to carry a Movi MR from Freefly due out soon. 


This helicopter is capable of flying over 1 mile under full controll (line of site)

This kit comes fully assembled and tested and includes a DAYS Training FOR 2 People (you will howerver need a licence to fly it!)


Key Features


Vibration Isolation System : Fully adjustable, patent pending vibration isolation system ensures smooth and stable footage in real life filming conditions

Camera Gimbal Mounting Plate : Mounting plate allows for quick and easy mounting/unmounting of the camera gimbal for travel

Quick Release Booms : Ikarus booms disconnect quickly and easily for fast packing and a small footprint. Our customers fly almost as much as the Ikarus, and making packing/unpacking easy is a priority

Top Mounted Battery : In addition to providing ease of access to the battery and optimal CG (center of gravity) for best flight perfomance, the top mounted battery creates a strucural cage around the sensitive flight control electronics

Threaded Inserts/Nuts : The Ikarus line uses threaded inserts in the carbon fiber plate to make assemblydisassembly a breeze. This design ensures that you only need to hold one tool at a time. Never again will you need to hold a lock nut in place with needle nose pliers in a poorly lit hotel room!

GPS/Navi mounting bracket : It is important to keep the sensitive GPS and Navi board away from and stray electomagnetic interference. For this reason, the Ikarus includes an optional GPS/Navi mounting bracket that allows you to mount these circuit boards out on a boom away from other electronics


This Helicopter has be designed with the Film and Broadcast industry in mind, its modular design can be dismantled for transport and enables the user to quickly swap out booms if need be so the rig is always operationally ready. All 8 booms are centred around the core management deck. This means you can quickly problem solve and diagnose problems even in a demanding environment. This ability is a key point when considering this type of application - often, there is no 2nd chance to simply "do that shot again".
