“Having tried cheap alternatives – you spend twice as long in the air and often don’t come back with the result. With Tony – he knows where to place the machine relative to the subject – without fuss or waste of time and with good results every time.
Spending money on good people with good, safe equipment cannot be beaten.” Chris Miller.
