Wingtra, the Swiss drone company that develops the first commercially successful vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) drone, has signed a reseller agreement with Opti-cal Survey Equipment, a well-established, industry-leading supplier of land survey and precision measurement technologies in the UK.
“At Opti-cal we are constantly striving to provide the latest and most advanced technological solutions to our customers. The WingtraOne offers a revolutionary combination of payload modularity, and the VTOL fixed-wing workflow opens up a world of mapping possibilities, offering the best of both worlds from conventional fixed-wing and multirotor UAVs. We are delighted to partner with Wingtra and look forward to working with them in the future” said Opti-cal technician, Edward Fisher.
“Wingtra is always looking to expand its reach to more and more customers globally. Part of this effort depends on partners that have a strong retail network. Opti-cal with its 14 locations across the UK, a salesforce of experienced survey experts and a proven track record in the UAV space, is one of these partners. We are excited to welcome them into the family of Wingtra resellers,” said Wingtra Sales Manager, Terence Thiel.
WingtraOne takes off and lands like a multicopter, but flies like a fixed-wing aircraft. This technology eliminates the risk of damaging the drone while landing and lets it carry heavier and thus better sensors (e.g. 42MP Sony RX1RII and spectral cameras) while allowing the mapping of large areas. With the post-processed kinematic upgrade and the highest quality sensors, WingtraOne reaches accuracy down to 1 cm (0.4 in) without any ground control points.
Opti-cal Survey equipment supplies a range of quality survey equipment, including UAVs, to an array of industries. They sell, hire and service new and reconditioned instruments. The company matches world-class instrumentation with effective service and unrivaled technical expertise. Serving an increasingly diverse market, Opti-cal is constantly evolving to provide innovative solutions to meet the ever-changing requirements of our customers, whatever their application.
