Wingtra - VTOL mapping drone for surveying applications
Conduct high-precision aerial surveys—fast and for large projects
The WingtraOne is a VTOL mapping drone used by geospatial specialists and industry professionals to capture aerial images for Surveying and GIS, Mining, Construction, Agriculture and Environmental Monitoring applications.
The WingtraOne offers both the convenience of vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) and the endurance of a fixed-wing drone able to survey mid-to-large scale projects.
Thanks to its hybrid VTOL design and high-resolution cameras (up to 42MP), WingtraOne provides aerial surveys of unparalleled image quality and accuracy. Add to this survey times up to 80% faster than ground methods or quadcopter drones.

Drone applications and case studies
Explore applications in your industry
Drones can improve decisions, reduce costs and risks, and improve returns on investment in many mapping and surveying applications. Find out how professionals around the world have leveraged this technology in their industry.
Construction and infrastructure
Drones help to map large or unreachable areas for pre-built evaluation. They also decrease costs and allow multiple surveys over time to monitor construction progress.
Environmentalists and researchers rely on commercial drones to follow wildlife easily and quickly, and to keep track of land changes in the environment without the need for low-resolution satellite imagery or costly manned aircraft.
Eight reasons for surveying with WingtraOne
Drone manufacturer company
Founded in 2016 in Zurich, Switzerland, Wingtra is the world’s leading manufacturer of VTOL drones for mapping and surveying. Wingtra has grown globally with a distribution network in more than 50 countries where drones are currently in operation. Today, Wingtra is home to more than 80 Wingtranauts, including geospatial specialists and 30+ engineers focused on R&D.

In this article, we compare two popular mapping drone – Sensefly eBee X and the WingtraOne. Discover specs, image quality tests and coverage results.
The WingtraOne from Wingtra and the Quantix are the two most advanced professional VTOL drones. This is the ultimate comparison of image quality, usability and specs.
Wingtra regularly introduces new mapping features, more payload options, enhanced flight and landing operations and deeper integrations with photogrammetry software providers.
The Switzerland-based mapping drone manufacturer Wingtra is launching a new line of services including add-ons, training and consulting, Total Maintenance Plans (TMP) and a second-year warranty option.
Wingtra’s recent WingtraHub 1.0 release has launched to fully support a lean workflow between the WingtraOne drone and Pix4Dmatic, a fresh Pix4D product for reliable speedy processing of large datasets. This integration is especially key since Wingtra’s VTOL drone is designed to map large sites fast and safely while providing the best possible data quality. The high-quality datasets that result can now be processed into point clouds and orthomosaics at twice the speed on average with Pix4Dmatic.
In response to strong customer feedback, we’ve updated the in-flight experience with in-app controls plus pause and resume for the most streamlined WingtraOne flight experience yet.
