A fully autonomous fixed-wing VTOL drone designed for long-distance surveying applications.
The WingtraOne is a professional VTOL fixed-wing drone with superb image quality and accuracy. With exceptional data quality, the WingtraOne enables much faster surveys, more reliable map reconstruction and more precise results than other commercial drones.
Fully autonomous and operated by an advanced autopilot.
VTOL – Take off and land vertically
The WingtraOne features a vertical take-off designed to make operation safer, easier and more cost effective. This negates the need to hold the UAV in place during take-off to ensure the operator is always a safe distance away. With controlled manual adjustments in hover mode to land, there are no more belly landings and the UAV is easy to pilot. Each landing is safe and doesn’t damage your equipment, even on rough terrain. You can now take off and land in confined areas such as on boats and between buildings, enabling mapping that you may not be able to complete with other equipment.
- Take-off is automatic, ensuring operator safety
- Better obstacle avoidance – you control when the WingtraOne goes into flight mode
- No more damage to your equipment
- Take-off and land in confined areas
- Smooth landing on rough terrain
- With a hover and flight mode
- Can adapt to a moving environment
Minimise your time in the field
In one flight, WingtraOne can map almost 2x more than a conventional fixed-wing drone and approximately 10 to 15x more than multicopter drones. You can therefore cover the area efficiently at a high altitude without negating your results
- Map up to 400+ha (988ac) in a one-hour flight*
- Up to 50km (31mi) flight range
Get precise results
Thanks to its professional drone PPK GNSS L1/L2 receiver and highest-quality cameras, like the 42 MP full-frame Sony RX1RII camera, it is possible to reach down to 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy. These incredibly detailed, high resolution images allow reliable reconstruction of orthomosaic maps and 3D models.
- Up to 42mp full-frame camera payload
- Down to 0.7 cm/px GSD (0.3 in/px GSD)
- L1/L2 PPK GNSS receiver for higher accuracy
- Down to 1cm (0.4in) absolute accuracy
After the aerial data collection, Wingtra is able to leverage of its partnership with Pix4D, by using the company’s post-processing software to generate orthophotos and 3D models from the geotagged images. “After post-processing the data, results become visual — the orthomosaics and 3D models are extremely detailed and enable very precise calculations”, added Ambühl.
“Our unique VTOL technology has already helped us establish a firm ground in the market with applications ranging from cadastral surveying of Africa’s largest Uranium mine to digital elevation modeling of Alpine locations”, Wingtra COO Maximilian Boosfeld mentioned. “With the combination of VTOL capability and the PPK, we see a clear advantage over the current aerial surveying solutions. I believe that WingtraOne will generally replace fixed-wings in large coverage mapping missions in the near future as we have just set the new industry benchmark in drone photogrammetry.”
For Wingtra customers who have previously owned a non-PPK drone, there is some good news–they will be able to upgrade, says Justina Kostinaite, Head of Marketing at Wingtra. In order to do so they simply have to contact Wingtra sales or support team and proceed with the process.
In terms of pricing, the non-PPK WingtraOne version bundles start at $20,000.
