About Us

Hello, welcome to AddictiveRC LLC and the AddcitiveRC.com website. My name is John Wood and here at AddictiveRC we specialize in R/C (radio controlled) multirotor aircraft, aka UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) or drones as the media has coined them based on their military counterparts.

We specialize in custom built high end multirotor UAVs for aerial photography, FPV Freestyle, FPV Racing and UAVs for inspection services, search and rescue, Agricultural plus many other aerial services some of which have not even been invented yet. As the aerial vehicle industry is just getting started we feel like the Wright Brothers and this is our Kitty Hawk moment. Or maybe you just want to have fun, we can help with that too.

4K and higher video resolution is all the rage and professional cinematographers working on low and big budget movies will benefit from our aerial platforms that are capable of lifting many of the movie industries high end cameras. At a fraction of the cost the small film production company can now achieve shots only big budget Hollywood was able to using expensive helicopters and chase cars. You can even achieve smooth stable footage without the use of dollies or cranes allowing even the micro and home cinematographer to get that perfect shot.
From an inspection industry standpoint the UAV is a much needed and highly versatile tool allowing the agricultural farmer to inspect their crops, building and line inspectors to safely conduct their inspections at affordable prices and in half the time.
Law enforcement, border patrol or search and rescue teams plus many other municipalities can now put a UAV to work faster, safer and far more effectively than the use of helicopters or other expensive rigs. From small quadcopters to portable UAVs that can be brought into remote locations the ability to save lives has never been more achievable.
