If you are a drone owner and you thrive to get some breathtaking shots, join our drone expedition to the islands of Indonesia. We will fly the drones over Flores and neighboring islands in the Komodo National Park, where you can take beautiful photos and videos of beaches, traditional villages, mountains, colorful volcanic lakes, rice fields and various islands.
 
Besides flying the drones, we will enjoy camping and swimming at the pristine beach Koka, we will see the sunrise above Kelimutu - the lakes of spirits, we will drive the scooters along the winding roads to traditional villages and hot springs, where the cold river mixes with the hot one. Before dawn we will trek to the summit of Inerie volcano and contemplate the view of the volcanic landscape around, we will see (and taste) the making process of arak - the local alcohol, we will sleep over in a traditional drum house, in a village hidden from the outside world, and we will enjoy three days of cruising, snorkeling and watching the tropical fish, huge mantas, and the largest reptiles on the planet - the Komodo dragons - in the Komodo National Park Komodo.
 
Only 10 pilots can join our expedition. Due to the character of the tour, we recommend you take at least 3 high quality batteries, a multiple battery charger, and a device with sufficient capacity to store the photos and videos you take. Choose the size of the drone accordingly to the fact that you will have to carry it a few hour to a distant village of Wae Rebo, and that you will travel with it on the scooter. If you want to fly the drone over the water, we recommend you take a device to keep the drone afloat in case of a hazard (for example a Waterbuoy). If you have any further questions, don't hesitate to contact us.
 
We picked these places as the main drone flying locations:
  • Koka Beach - pristine beach in the shape of a heart
  • Kelimutu - sunrise over the three-colored volcanic lakes
  • Bena - the traditional matriarchial village
  • Spiderweb rice fields near Cancar
  • Wae Rebo - the traditional village with drum houses sitting on the hill amid the clouds
  • Komodo National Park - Padar island, islands with coral reefs in a turquoise sea, taking shots from the boat etc.
  • If we have enough time, we can add more places.
 
In each of these locations we will stay half a day or sometimes even a full day so that everyone can take his turn in the air. We will either charge batteries in the evenings and overnight in the hotels, or with a generator, which we will take with us.
