Jeff Scholl - Chief Engineer, Full Scale Pilot, sUAV Pilot & Specialist
Jeff Scholl since a young age has been absorbed with flying devices. Flying full scale planes at age 16 was no small task. Jeff continued his love for aviation and holds a commercial instrument rating on full scale aircraft. With his passion for aerospace, came his passion for photography. In the late 90s, he started thinking about putting cameras on his flying machines. A Nikon 990 was the first digital camera that went up in the air. It unleashed the possibility of unobstructed views. Since that time in the 90’s Jeff has developed several different HeliCam platforms. Specially configured electric helicopter camera ships, enables him to capture photographic video angles never before seen.
Jeff’s obsession is capturing creative perspectives between 10 and 400 feet and designing the best flying device to capture them.
Jeff joined forces with Quadrocopter in 2010, sharing his knowledge in this industry and helping others achieve high quality aerial perspectives.

"When you buy from us you have a full support staff to ask questions and help you learn how to fly it safely,” Paugh said. “We do a lot of hand holding because we want you to succeed… And we don’t want people crashing into buildings.”
