Our Inventory

JABA Drones is equipped with a 4x4 vehicle with an onboard video editing suite and drone battery charging facilities allowing for video productions in remote areas. We use the DJI Inspire 1 Pro with Zenmuse X5, DJI Phantom 4 and the DJI Mavic Pro UAV's to create our aerial photography and video.

The DJI Inspire 1 Pro features the Zenmuse X5, the world's first mirrorless, compact Micro Four Thirds camera made specifically for aerial photography and cinematography. The Zenmuse X5 records 4k video at up to 30fps and captures 16mp still images. Dual controls (one for the camera, the other for the pilot) and 360 degree views makes capturing spectacular footage more possible than ever before.

Our UAV pilots are fully certified by CASA and comply with Australian aviation laws. JABA is fully accredited with CASA and holds a UAV Operators Certificate. JABA is also fully insured with Public Liability insurance and Professional Indemity insurance.
