Drone

Main features of the WingtraOne drone

VTOL (vertical take-off and landing)

WingtraOne can take off and land everywhere—even in confined spaces or on rough terrain. This enables you to collect data where other drones cannot.

Plus, vertical landings mean no debris scratching your camera lens and thus a longer equipment lifetime.

More about VTOL

Up to 59 min flight time

Efficient fixed-wing flight mode allows WingtraOne to take on missions that last up to 59 min.While flight time is important, note that other factors influence your time spent on site, as well as your bottom line.

Maximum flight time varies depending on payloads and environmental factors.

10 km telemetry range

Stay connected with your drone via a direct line of site range of up to 10 km (6 mi).

Smart batteries

Li-ion cells, with short circuit, over-charging, and under-voltage protection. Safe and compliant with UN regulations for carry-on luggage.

WingtraOne data quality map

Down to 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy

Achieve best-in-class absolute accuracy without GCPs, using the survey-grade L1/L2 PPK GNSS receiver from Septentrio and the Sony RX1R II camera. Down to 3 cm (1.2 in) with the Sony QX1 camera.

How to deliver this level of accuracy?

This level of accuracy is achievable under optimal conditions, on hard surfaces, using well-marked, highly-visible, manually-measured control. points and well-established stations.

Down to 0.7 cm (0.3 in) GSD

The full-frame 42 MP Sony RX1R II payload enables you to achieve sub-centimeter level GSDs.

Such low GSD guarantees better map reconstruction, broader coverage and the highest accuracy results.

Payload damping

Passive damping for consistent brilliant, sharp images

Quad-constellation GNSS receiver

Two modules exploit GPS and GLONASS information and are ready for Galileo and BeiDou.

Intelligent wind control

Stable data collection in surface winds of up to 12 m/s (27 mph*). Advanced control algorithms stabilize WingtraOne and guarantee sharp results even in high winds where other drones fail.

*8 m/s (19 mph) measured on the ground

Fully autonomous

Automated launch, in-flight data collection and landing without human interaction.

5 min setup

Take off in less than five minutes, including drone setup, all preflight steps and planning of a simple mapping mission

Manual take-over with in-app controls

Take manual control of the drone at any time during landing. Use the intuitive controls in the tablet to adjust its position mid-air and land the drone safely.

Pre-flight checklist

WingtraPilot guarantees full functionality of the drone pre-flight by running background checks like battery health, GPS reception and test images.

You’ll see an interactive checklist that guides you through the preflight process and catches oversights, e.g., not removing the camera lid.

Real-time monitoring

Displays information like flight location, altitude and mission progress from a range of up to 10 km (6 mi).

Pause and resume

Pause the survey mission at any time— to make the drone loiter in the air — or trigger return to home (RTH), causing the drone to fly back to its take-off location automatically.

From both of these states at any time, you can resume the survey mission, and the drone will start capturing images from where it stopped.

Smart voice

Provides you with comprehensive audio feedback during the mission.

Switch camera

Corridor mapping

Fast, efficient coverage of long, narrow stretches. For road construction or inspection; railway track monitoring and inspection; pipeline and power line inspection,and environmental research such as river mapping.

Beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS)

Full mission capability even without a connection to the ground station.

Advanced mission planning

Multi area planning and zero overlap for population counting algorithms.

High-altitude propellers

Optional propellers allow take-off at altitudes of up to 4800 m (15,700 ft) AMSL and data collection at altitudes of up to 5000 m (16,400 ft) AMSL.

Camera swap

Swappable camera with single standard USB-C interface. Change between RGB and multispectral cameras within minutes.

Seamless workflow

Seamless workflow

Integrated features for fast data collection and geo-tagging

Offline maps

No internet connection in the field? No problem. You can always download offline maps in advance while you’re still connected to the internet. Then you can easily load them when you arrive at the mapping location.

KML import

For a seamless mission, simply import KML files directly from GIS programs. WingtraPilot will construct the optimal flight path to cover the area.

Single SD card workflow

Eliminates risk of mismatched or lost data even for the PPK workflow

Integrated PPK post-processing

WingtraHub is our integrated image geotagging software. If you have a WingtraOne with a PPK module, the high-precision PPK processing will give you centimeter-accuracy geotags for flight images. WingtraOne images can be geotagged in any Earth-centered, Earth-fixed coordinate system such as WGS84.

Battery swap and resume

Automatically splits large missions, pausing flight and resuming after the batteries have been swapped

On-site inspection

All aerial images and geolocation information is stored on a single SD card and can be inspected in the field on the WingtraPilot tablet for early quality checks.

Saved mission

For time saving and consistent results from recurring surveys, saved missions can be loaded with a single click.

Multi-flight geotagging

Allows georeferencing of multiple flights at the end of the day, saving time in the field

Robust drone

Robust and safe

Engineered in Switzerland, WingtraOne offers the highest quality standards and is extensively used in various environments, from glaciers in Greenland to desert mines in Namibia.

Engineered and assembled in Switzerland

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

Redundant sensors

Fully redundant GPS, IMU and magnetometer sensors

Payload protection

Shock-free vertical landing: a standard WingtraOne feature enabled by VTOL design

Adaptive geofence

Allows dynamic constraint of flight radius to prevent fly-aways

Terrain following

The terrain following function relies on global terrain models and allows safe and effective mapping from steady altitudes even in the most mountainous areas.

Absolute flight altitude, flight height above the ground as well as terrain elevation are graphically displayed in WingtraPilot.

Intelligent Return To Home (RTH)

Continuous checks for restricted flight areas, GPS reception, battery health, high winds and operating temperatures. In case of abnormal conditions, WingtraOne safely returns to its take-off point automatically.

Predictive self-diagnosis

WingtraOne diagnoses component malfunctions for batteries, motors and servos using advanced machine learning algorithms based on thousands of flights.

Custom elevation data

Import your own elevation data and use it instead of the default shuttle radar topography mission (SRTM) terrain data.

Lights

Optional green and red LED flashing position lights enhance visibility and indicate flight direction
