ThumbCoast Aerial is not your everyday cheesy amateur aerial videographer you see on Facebook or Instagram.

Thumb Coast Aerial of Michigan's thumb region has been building custom drones since 2010. Because of that we want to put you in a first person view as we fly through the sky as if you the viewer were a bird or a bumble bee or even sky diving from an airplane, which we have done that before to!

What is FPV ? First-person view, also known as remote-person view, or simply video piloting, is a method used to control a radio-controlled vehicle from the driver or pilot's view point.

We use custom built FPV racing drones to capture the most unique perspectives for our clients needs.
