Ready to fly in five minutes

The WingtraOne drone comes with a tablet featuring WingtraPilot, the built-in app for easily managing data acquisition. The intuitive app includes various ways to prepare flight plans as well as monitor and review missions during flight.

5 min setup

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

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

More details

Fully autonomous

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

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.

More details

Manual take-over with in-app controls

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

Real-time monitoring

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

Smart voice

Provides you with comprehensive audio feedback during the mission.

Use one drone for all your mapping missions

With swappable cameras and propellers, and advanced flight planning features, you are able to collect different types of data in any environment.

Camera swap

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

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

More details

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

More details

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.

Speed up your workflow

WingtraPilot and WingtraHub have been developed with many smart features to make your data collection faster, safer and more convenient.
Surveyor mapping with WingtraPilot

No internet connection in the field? No problem. You can always download offline maps in advance while you’re still connected to the internet and use them at the mapping location.

More details

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

More details

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.

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.

Drone geo-tagging software Wingtrahub

Saved mission

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

Battery swap and resume

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

Multi-flight geotagging

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

Single SD card workflow

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

Stay confident even in tough conditions

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.
WingtraOne in cold environments

Engineered and assembled in Switzerland

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

Predictive self-diagnosis

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

Payload protection

WingtraOne’s camera never comes into contact with the ground, protecting it from abrasion, dust, dirt and snow, especially on rough terrain.

Terrain following drone app

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 and terrain elevation are graphically displayed in WingtraPilot.

More details

Custom elevation data

Use your own elevation data instead of the default shuttle radar topography mission (SRTM) terrain data.

Redundant sensors

Fully redundant GPS, IMU and magnetometer sensors.

Adaptive geofence

Allows dynamic constraint of flight radius to prevent fly-aways.

Lights

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

Fly everywhere, safely

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.

Up to 59 min flight time

Efficient fixed-wing flight mode allows WingtraOne to take on missions that last up to 59 min.

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.

Achieve high data quality

With the full-frame 42 MP camera from Sony and the integrated GNSS PPK receiver, you can reach data quality previously only possible with ground-based survey equipment.
Play Video

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

Such low GSDs guarantee better map reconstruction, broader coverage and the highest accuracy results.

More details

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.

More details

*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.

Advanced wind control algorithms guarantee stable data collection in surface winds up to 12 m/s (27 mph).

More details

Quad-constellation GNSS receiver

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

Payload damping

Passive damping for consistent brilliant, sharp images.

Trust your equipment

The WingtraOne drone comes with a rugged Samsung Galaxy Tab Active 2, which can withstand all conditions common to a drone mapping project.

What's included in the bundle?

Flying in wind

We recommend flying WingtraOne in sustained winds no higher than 8 m/s (18 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

* As measured with the wind measurement tool from the pilot box—approximately 2 m (7 ft) above the ground (raise the tool above your head to measure; do not stand close to large objects like buildings or trees)

** As referenced in most weather forecasts—approx 10-20 m (33-66 ft) above the ground
