about us

About Us:

Since 2011, our team of drone experts have advised, built and supplied drones all over the UK. We’re the one stop shop for all things drone and anything related to remote control aircraft.

As well as having the country’s biggest range of drones and accessories, we also offer training, aerial photography and videography services for both personal and business use, so whether you’re new to drones, an avid hobbyist or looking into the commercial applications of drones and remote control aircraft; you’re in the right place and we’re here to help.


Who are Drones Direct?

Originally established in 2011 named ProFlight-UK, we quickly became one of the UK’s most trusted and knowledgeable drone retailers. In 2015 we joined forces with leading £120m online retailer Buy It Direct, transforming our business and changing our name to Drones Direct in the process. We’re now the largest supplier of drones in the UK - covering the racing, hobbyist and professional markets.


Why choose us?


At Drones Direct we like to get as much for our money as possible and think our customers feel the same – which is why we guarantee to beat our major competitors when it comes to price. Our buying power means we buy in high quantities of stock; meaning we can offer discounted pricing to our customers making us both the cheapest around and almost always have the products in stock, ready to ship to you!


Need it tomorrow? Not a problem. Our next day delivery service means you can order today for delivery tomorrow. Plus, unlike others, we ship 7 days a week, so you can even order on Sunday and receive your goods on Monday! You can also visit our Huddersfield store 7 days a week and take the goods away with you right there and then.


We know that low prices are not enough to build a business, you need the service and technical support to back it up. We want our customers to come back to us time and time again, and to recommend our products and services to friends, family and colleagues. We achieve this by offering great service as well as great prices. 

Although we sell high tech products, our vision for Customer Service is old fashioned; we understand the hobbyist and professional market don't want to speak to a generic call centre, they want to speak or meet with someone who knows what they are talking about. That is why all our Sales, Customers Service and Technical Team are all trained drone specialists. 

We offer plain speaking no-nonsense advice. This approach has means we not only have loyal customers but because of our shared passion, we've made some great friends on the way. And when things go wrong, we promise to always use common sense and fairness to fix the problem.

One of our greatest strengths is our warm and welcoming approach; no question is too small and no problem is too big. You can call us for advice, email us for advice or pop in for advice. We understand that the choice of equipment can be difficult, and the variety of options available can be overwhelming. Our friendly team are here to help guide you through the process and choose the best option to get you in the air. 

Customer satisfaction is extremely important to us so we like to make sure that from the moment you open the box, your drone is ready to go. For example, before any custom builds are dispatched we will test your aircraft in unobstructed air space to ensure that they working and ready for you to fly. Throughout our sourcing process we make sure thorough quality testing is in place to ensure our products are always reliable and of the highest quality available. 

We also know how frustrating it can be when the inevitable happens, which is why our experienced tech team are on hand to advise, diagnose and fix any faults or breakages you might have down the line.
