VTOL mapping drone WingtraOne

Efficient fixed-wing flight

Fly at 16 m/s (36 mph) for up to 59 minutes per flight for large coverage.

42 MP camera

WingtraOne can fly higher than drones limited to 20 MP cameras, so you capture more ground and more detail with every picture and a larger area per flight.

No more GCPs, checkpoints only

With an onboard high-precision PPK GNSS receiver you no longer need to lay out ground control points (GCPs). Use as few as three checkpoints to verify your map quality.

Lower image overlaps

High quality optics means you can reconstruct your map reliably even with lower overlaps. This means more new ground covered per flight line and maximum coverage per flight.

“Mapping the same road two years ago, we used a multi­copter drone, covering 3 km (1.8 mi) of road per day. Right now, in that same time, we cover the whole road, 22 km (14 mil), with WingtraOne.”

Cut costs

Faster data collection and expanded coverage ultimately mean your team spends less time in the field, lowering the man-hour costs associated with data collection.

Faster data collection and expanded coverage mean fewer people in the field for less time, lowering the man-hour costs associated with data collection.

These three ports totaling an area of 3,000 acres (1,200 ha) were mapped in three days with an absolute accuracy of 0.6 in (1.5 cm). All figures are estimates and do not include post-processing and final output costs. Estimates are based on a 1,500 USD per day charge by the survey company.

Map anywhere

Thanks to its VTOL design, WingtraOne can take-off and land almost anywhere—even in confined spaces or on rough terrain. This enables you to collect data where other drones cannot.

vtol surveying drone landing

WingtraOne’s camera never comes into contact with the ground, meaning no debris scratching your camera lens and thus a longer equipment lifetime.

"We surveyed 300 ha (741 acres) in less than two hours with a WingtraOne. This mapping project would have not been possible with conventional drones because of their coverage limits or space needed for take-off and landing."

Data quality that will set you apart

Equipped with a 42 MP full-frame Sony camera, the WingtraOne takes sharp and undistorted nadir images with high pixel density, resulting in a GSD of down to 0.7 cm / px.

„Because we’re a surveying company, we always do ground control, and we always run a double and a triple check. But we’re finding less and less need to because every time, WingtraOne data is just spot-on without having to use GCPs at all.“

A reliable workhorse

No matter the conditions, WingtraOne operates safely and delivers high-quality data, consistently.

Board

Engineered and assembled in Switzerland

Each drone is subjected to more than 300 rigorous tests to ensure the highest quality standard.

Sharp results, even in wind

Intelligent wind control algorithms stabilize the WingtraOne and ensure accurate results in up to 12m/s (27 mph) surface wind.

Predictive self-diagnosis

WingtraOne self-diagnoses component malfunctions using advanced machine learning algorithms based on thousands of flights.

Automated safety checks

Before every flight, the WingtraOne automatically checks its own sensors and actuators to make sure you can fly safely.

These ratings are based on a popular customer satisfaction survey methodology known as Customer Effort Score (CES). Customer Effort Score (CES) is a customer service metric that measures user experience with a product or service.

After Wingtra’s customer request has been processed, customers receive an e-mail asking them to rank their experience on a seven-point scale ranging from “Very Difficult” to “Very Easy.” This determines how much effort was required for them to get their request resolved.

For simplification purposes, the ratings have been proportionally scaled down and rounded to a 5-star rating system, (e.g 6 on the 7-scale equals to 4 on a 5-star scale).

Flying in wind

We recommend flying WingtraOne in sustained winds no higher than 8 m/s (19 mph) measured on the ground.

The system can handle sustained winds of up to 12 m/s (27 mph) in the air and will return to home in even stronger wind. To understand how wind might impact drone behavior consider that:

Drone flying wind tipping
Measured on ground Surface wind Tipping expectations
0-5 m/s (0-11 mph)
0-7 m/s (0-16 mph)
Tippings rarely occur
5-8 m/s (11-18 mph)
7-10 m/s (16-22 mph)
Tippings can occur
> 8 m/s (> 18 mph)
> 10 m/s (> 22 mph)
Not recommended to fly
