Drone shots of the largest logistics warehouse in Europe - Tournan-en-Brie, Seine-et-Marne

Via the HOsiHO Drone Network platform, we recently received an order from an English audiovisual production company located in London for the production of aerial shots by drone. They were looking for a drone operator able to produce completely autonomously, video rushes, a photo report and also a 360-degree panoramic aerial photo of the brand new CONFORAMA logistics platform located in the Paris region, in the town of Tournan-en- Brie, in Seine-et-Marne (77).

Our first step was to locate on Google Maps and on the site in order to visualize the environment, but the maps proposed dated from the very beginning of the work and only made it possible to locate the 33 hectares of the land still fallow but no foundation, no building emerged from the ground.

We still had the essential information to file our flight information file with the prefecture of Seine-et-Marne, and to check that we were well outside the CTR of Melun, prohibited from drone flight from the ground.

We feel very small, as the measurements of this logistics platform are out of the ordinary.

800 m long by 250 m wide. That's the equivalent of about 30 football fields. With an area of ​​180,000 m² for a clear height of 12m offering a storage capacity estimated at 270,000 pallets, Conforama has the largest logistics warehouse in Europe. When we arrived, we had the choice of 3 car parks: in the center, in the south, in the north. Where were we going to set up our base camp? Where should we position our vehicle in order to have easy access to our battery stock? After having studied the plan and considering all the possible options, we came out of the reception desk with a magnetic card allowing us to change car parks over the half-day of service as there was so much to do to connect the different points. take-offs that we had imagined.

Where to position yourself to keep a maximum distance of 100 m between the remote pilot and the drone?

All overflights were planned within the 33 hectares, but the land was well within the limits of the agglomeration with the obligation of a declaration to the prefecture for flights responding to the operational scenario known as S3. Under these conditions, the drone can still travel some 200 m provided that the remote pilot is stationed halfway. That was our main concern.


Realization of a panoramic aerial photo by drone in 360 degrees

As with any photo shoot, the first question that arises for the photographer is: where to place the camera and for what framing?

We naturally chose to place the point of view in the center of the logistics platform with a slight setback so as to offer a comfortable framing to view all the installations. Our experience of panoramic photos led us to position the drone at a height of 60 m.

The 360 ​​panoramic photo is available on the 360 ​​video page of our site.
