FAE 1718 FIXED WING topographic drone - demo flight

FAE 1718 Fixed Wing is an automated device for fast and precise acquisition of data which covers large areas in flight (500 Ha) at high speeds, helping those who practice precision farming, or for colecting support data for territorial planning.

We offer practical demonstrations fee, deducting the demonstration cost of the cost of possible acquisitions.

New: Optionally, unlimited range -video, telemetry and RC control- by 3G or 4G GSM system, details here

  • Autonomous navigation with predefined route, GPS position Hold / altitude hold
  • GNSS multistandard module - reliablity with constellations of 22 satellites and more - receives all GPS standards (Navstar, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS) - August Neo GPS Ublox
  • Return-to Home GPS function (activates automatically in case of loss of radio link)
  • Advanced ground-control software included
  • Automatic logging of all flight parameters, automatically generates KLM google earth files
  • Telemetry, wireless navigation map and configuration through a PC
  • Georeferenced photos made in semi-automatic mode - requires an initial time synchronization 
  • Nadir Photos and data collecting by onboard equipment
  • Flight control allows manual horizontal Autostabiliser
  • Automatic control of the flight altitude depending on the position of the joystick: middle retains altitude, any deviation from the middle translates into a constant in time descent or climb speed , doing landings easy
