Is the Drone loud?

earlier models of drones were very noisy and were sometimes distracting, but the new model that we fly with is very quiet and many wedding guests don’t even notice the drone is flying around.

What happens if it rains?

Hey, it’s Hawaii. It rains sometimes, but not usually for long. Rain on your wedding day is actually considered good luck and can lead to some specular rainbows. We will not, however, fly the drone in the rain or in heavy wind conditions. We can not control the weather but we will not put out equipment nor any guest or staff in unsafe situations.

Can you fly the drone in the dark?

No. We can not fly in the dark. We need to be able to see the drone while it is in the air. safety is number one concern.
