Aerial mapping cameras

Best-in-class cameras for the most precise survey results

Thanks to WingtraOne’s heavy payload capacity, the selected cameras are the best in their respective categories. There’s no compromise on digital aerial image quality due to size or weight limitations. Payloads are easy to swap, so one drone can be used for different projects. Moreover, smooth vertical landings protect the expensive cameras even in rough environments.

For high accuracy surveys, WingtraOne carries the Sony RX1R II 42 MP camera. Its full-frame sensor guarantees superior image resolution for a drone camera, while low distortion lenses ensure best reconstruction results. Together with the integrated PPK option, this bundle offers absolute data accuracy down to 1 cm (0.4 in).

The Sony QX1 with a 15 mm Voigtländer lens is best suited for 3D reconstruction. It also has the largest coverage option for limited altitude.

One drone for many applications

Easily swap cameras

WingtraOne is engineered to be flexible for flight with various payloads. Changing them takes just a few minutes. Get the flexibility of extremely high resolution with the Sony RX1R II, or the leading edge of multispectral imagery with the Micasense RedEdge-MX in the same drone.

How to switch the camera

To switch the payloads, just unscrew the modular block and replace it with another one of our payloads and plug in the micro USB cable.

What our customers say

The main advantage with the WingtraOne was the high quality images from the camera. The Sony RX1R II camera with 35 mm lens makes it possible to cover the area efficiently at a high altitude of 390 m (1270 ft).
