Ralph Hogenbirk - Dutch Drone Gods

Ralph Hogenbirk

Pilot & founder

Nothing's impossible with this guy. Always looking to push the limits on a production and not afraid to try new techniques to stand out from the rest. He's the pilot behind Red Bull's World's Best FPV Drone Shot and many more things that were once thought to be impossible to shoot.

Bas Van T Hul - Dutch Drone Gods

Bas van 't Hul

Engineer / drone tech

Just a small amount of people are so heavily invested with everything that has to do with FPV drones and have such a deep understanding of all the tech around it. Bas breaths drones 24 hours a day you could say. It wouldn't come as a surprise he's one of the godfathers of the Red Bull Drone One, the first drone that could keep up with an F1 car.

Fardau Van Der Meulen - Dutch Drone Gods

Fardau van der Meulen

Project manager & producer

Although she's not a pilot herself, we simply cannot run the company without her. She makes sure every production gets planned, answers all our emails and phone calls and make sure the rest of the team can focus on flying. Her female grip keeps this group of men in order ;-)
