Build Your Own Drone was born from a combination of professional and personal passions for, Radio Controlled hobbies, electronic technology and an events photography company in 2009. Searching for a way to stand out from the crowded event photography space an idea was conceived, combine a camera with a helicopter, what could go wrong!

With no off the shelf solution on the market that did not cost 100’s of thousands of pounds at that time. A new and unique position to gain an edge over other photographers from an aerial perspective looked beyond reach. Build Your Own Drone was “born” in 2010 and started building and supplying parts to fellow photographers and a growing DIY community of drone builders at price points which were starting from only few hundred pounds not £100’s of thousands.

Today Build Your Own Drone Ltd has grown to be one of the biggest, most respected and best independent drone retailers for cutting edge technology in first person view, DIY drone building, drone racing, hobby and professional photography industry. The combination of passion, understanding and continual innovation has kept us at the front of an ever-changing industry with a deep understanding of the latest technologies on offer. We are specialists and a tier 1 dealer for DJI, the world’s largest drone company. We welcome any questions, are always happy to offer advice on which drone you need to enjoy your hobby or undertake a professional job.
