Wingtra, the Swiss drone manufacturer commercializing the first high-precision VTOL (vertical take-off and landing) drone, has signed a distribution partnership agreement with Dronage Company Limited, a specialist UAV surveying equipment dealer with expertise in aerial surveys and mapping. Dronage will be offering WingtraOne drones through their distribution network in Ghana and West Africa.
“We are very excited to announce to industry professionals the arrival of the high-accuracy VTOL drone in Ghana. ‘The WingtraOne, is truly a game changer in remote sensing and aerial survey, as it affords the advantages of both multicopters and fixed wings with the benefits of safer take off and landing, lower cost of maintaining payloads and more accurate mapping over larger areas per flight. It will really fill in the gaps created by the need for timely, accurate and cost effective mapping in West Africa’ Stated Mackiva Owusu, Business Development Manager at Dronage.
WingtraOne drone takes-off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing drone. VTOL technology eliminates the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry heavier and thus better sensors (e.g. 42 MP Sony RX1RII) and still allows mapping of large areas. With the latest upgrade, WingtraOne PPK drone offers a combination of large coverage, ultra-high resolution and accuracy down to 1 cm.
“The partnership with Dronage is the next step towards reaching the industry professionals in Africa. We see Dronage as a trusted distribution partner and we are excited to see the WingtraOne being sold through their sales network in Ghana.” stated Leopold Flechsenberger, Sales Manager at Wingtra.
