VTOL

Great Shark
VTOL Plane

Our largest drone is the Great Shark VTOL platform.  This is a 3.5 meter wingspan aircraft with four VTOL motors.  The motors provide enough lift for the plane to carry up to 5 Kg of payload.  The total weight of the aircraft is 23 Kg.  We have used this for coastal mapping as well as beyond line of site flights.  It is able to stay in the air for up to 4 hours depending on its payload.

This aircraft runs with Ardupilot and includes numerous safety elements such as triple redundant inertia sensors, GPS sensors and power supplies.

DJI Matrice
M600

The DJI Matrice M600 is our main work-horse drone.  This drone can carry many different payloads including our Scout Lidar, Photographic Pod, Ronin Gimbal and lots more.

The M600 is a six motor copter which allows up to 2 motors to stop and it can still fly.  Along with its triple redundant sensors, GPS and RTK GPS, it is able to out perform most other drones of its class.

Photography

DJI Inspire 2
Photographic Drone

We have had our Inspire for a number of years now and it is still one of the better photography drones.  While the Mavic drones provide an excellent platform for photography, the Inspire can accomodate larger form factor cameras and includes a separate gimbal for the photographer to control.  This ensures the best photographic results.

Photography

DJI Mavic 2 Pro
Photographic Drone

Many of our photography jobs are completed using the Mavic 2 Pro.  This drone is able to be flown in smaller spaces and can produce very high quality images and video.

One of our primary use for the Mavic 2 Pro is to produce 3d Mapping using photogrammetry. The Mavic has proven its reliability and convenience.
