WingtraOne professional surveying and mapping drone

Redefining standards in aerial surveying


With unprecedented data quality, the WingtraOne mapping and surveying drone enables much faster surveys, more reliable map reconstruction and more precise results than other commercial drones.

Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL)

Take off and land like a helicopter, fly like an airplane

Vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) capability allows the WingtraOne mapping drone to ascend and move like a helicopter. For the UAV survey mission, it transitions into a forward cruise flight, matching the endurance and speed of fixed-wing UAVs. In order to land, the WingtraOne switches back to hover flight and descends vertically.

How VTOL works

Take-off and land anywhere

Confined forest areas or gravel open-pit mine terrain are no longer obstacles. WingtraOne can land everywhere, smoothly.

No piloting skills needed

Fully autonomous vertical take-off and landing without human interaction.

Manual adjustments and hover

While all parts of the flight are autonomous, at any time, you can switch into manual mode and use the remote control as easily as with any standard quadcopter drone.

No belly landings

Up to 70 percent of fixed wing drone issues are related to belly landings. Avoid them with a vertical landing.

Large coverage drone surveying

Mapping large areas has never been this easy

Orthomosaic Forest Finland

Vast forests, mountain ranges and even the biggest mines in the world can be mapped in just a few hours’ time. This makes WingtraOne literally the only drone that can perform large mapping projects once only possible with manned aircraft.

Minimize your time in the field

In one flight, WingtraOne can map almost 2x more than a conventional fixed-wing drone and approximately 10 to 15x more than multicopter drones.

How to save time with WingtraOne

Survey-grade drone photogrammetry

Best-in-class equipment for the most precise results

WingtraOne PPK sets the new benchmark for drone survey equipment. Thanks to its professional drone PPK GNSS L1/L2 receiver and highest-quality cameras, like the 42 MP full-frame Sony RX1RII camera, it is now possible to reach down to 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy with an aerial survey drone.

The economical WingtraOne QX1 PPK combination guarantees absolute accuracy down to 3 cm (1.2 in) with the largest available coverage at 120 m (400 ft).

Highest image quality

From a full-frame 42 MP RGB to specialty cameras, WingtraOne guarantees the best data quality across different applications.

Modular payloads

Switch quickly between the camera of your choice. From ultra-high resolution RGB to an industry-leading multispectral.

High resolution cameras for mapping drones

Down to 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy

Combine VTOL, the powerful Sony RX1RII 42 MP full-frame and a PPK module from Septentrio, and you get the accuracy that was previously only possible with land survey equipment.

With the more affordable Sony QX1 PPK bundle you get industry standard down to 3 cm (1.2 in) absolute accuracy.

Absolute accuracy without GCPs

GCPs are no longer needed to reach survey-grade accuracy results. To verify your accuracy results, place as few as three on the field and use them as checkpoints.
