Single Operator Survey Platform - $4,900 (Inc. GST)
The single operator survey platform is a 1.5 m delta-wing airframe, providing stable flight with lots of lift and a simple design. It runs a compact camera, taking 20 Mega Pixel images, capable of 2.25 cm/pixel resolution at 100 m. The camera can be configured to trigger at certain time intervals, or triggered autonomously from the flight controller to create 2D orthomosaics and 3D models. The flight controller is an open-source Ardupilot flight controller which we have tested thoroughly and found to be very successful. This airframe is capable of up to 30 minute* operational flight times, covering approximately 30 km on a single battery.
This aircraft also has a flying weight of under 2kg meaning that it will be eligible for operation under the new Sub 2-kilogram regulation recently released by CASA.
*30 minute flight times are based on real-world operations, carrying the camera and conducting surveys. However, please note that this flight time is weather dependant, and strong winds reduce flight time.
