Opti-cal are pleased to announce that we are now a UK dealer for Wingtra, the Swiss drone company that develops the vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone, the WingtraOne.
The WingtraOne is a fully autonomous fixed-wing VTOL drone designed for long-distance surveying applications. It takes off and lands like a multicopter, but flies as a fixed-wing aircraft. This technology eliminates the risk of damaging the drone while landing and lets it carry heavier and thus better sensors (e.g. 42MP Sony RX1RII and spectral cameras) while allowing the mapping of large areas.
This professional VTOL fixed-wing drone features superb image quality and accuracy. With exceptional data quality, the WingtraOne enables much faster surveys, more reliable map reconstruction and more precise results than other commercial drones. With post processed kinematics (PPK) and the highest quality payloads, WingtraOne can reach an accuracy down to 1 cm (0.4 in).
“At Opti-cal we are constantly striving to provide the latest and most advanced technology solutions for our customers. The WingtraONE revolutionary combination of payloads and VTOL fixed wing workflow opens a world of mapping possibilities, offering the best of both worlds from conventional fixed wing and multirotor UAVs. We are delighted to be partnered up with Wingtra and look forward to working with them in the future.”
