84Km FPV over Carpathians mountains with FAE "Rebel" wing

Drone FAE - FW1718 FIXED WING REBEL topographic surveying and field supervision with unlimited range

FAE 1718 Fixed Wing Rebel is an automated device for fast and precise acquisition of data which covers large areas in flight (1000 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 RTK EMLID(Navstar, Glonass, Beidou, Galileo, QZSS)
  • 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 - 60 km
  • Georeferenced photos made in semi-automatic mode
  • 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

Advantages of FAE Drones

  • high flight time (double compared to competition)
  • high payload - 5 kg operational, 10 kg max
  • preserves altitude versus flight (AGL) in topographical applications
  • automatically divides large areas into multiple short flights
  • 24 MPx image quality with Prime APSC sensor lens (25.1mm x 16.7)
  • head hold - Direction of the camera to the same direction
