Professional fixed wing drone for topography and agriculture on very large surfaces, covering more than 1000 ha / flight. The REBEL Drone holds the world record for the distance traveled between Bucharest and Alba Iulia (video below).

FAE Drone 1718 Fixed Wing - REBEL is recommended as the right solution for:

  • topographically specific missions (digital surface model ortofotoplan.tif - topographic map, digital elevation model DEM, point cloud mapping, GIS)
  • road missions (round-trip trips), it covers 200 km road lengths per flight.

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 GNSS L1+L2 (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
