Wingtra, the Swiss drone manufacturer commercializing the first high-precision VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone, has signed a distribution partnership agreement with GEO SUSTAVI, a specialist surveying equipment dealer with a strong focus on UAV mapping operations, also a partner of Pix4D. GEO SUSTAVI will be offering WingtraOne drones through their distribution network in two major Croatian cities, Zagreb and Split.
“We are happy about this business move because it enables us to offer the latest technology in the UAV mapping field to the Croatian market. The world’s first commercial VTOL drone WingtraOne will surely fill the market gap by combining safety, speed and the accuracy of the aircraft “- commented Vedran Solarić, Director GEO SUSTAVI d.o.o.
WingtraOne drone takes-off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing drone. VTOL technology eliminates the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry heavier and thus better sensors (e.g. 42 MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas. With the latest upgrade, WingtraOne PPK drone offers a combination of large coverage, ultra-high resolution and accuracy down to 1 cm.
“For Wingtra this partnership means a further step in expanding the distribution network in Europe, after establishing presence on 6 continents. Geospatial professionals and aerial mapping specialist in Croatia will finally also have access to the unique advantages that the WingtraOne professional VTOL brings”, stated Antonio Živolić, Sales Manager at Wingtra.
Wingtra develops, produces and commercializes high precision VTOL drones that collect survey-grade aerial data. Wingtra entered the market in early 2017 and has been selling globally ever since. Recently the company has raised additional $5.8M to meet the demand in 2018 and partnered with biggest surveying equipment dealers across the globe.
