wingtraOne fixed-wing VTOL drone

Professional VTOL drone for aerial mapping and surveying.

Up To 80% Faster Than Traditional Surveying Methods

The WingtraOne fixed-wing VTOL drone is a professional aerial mapping tool, capable of performing fast aerial surveys across wide or hard-to-reach areas and producing reliable maps with unparalleled resolution and accuracy.  

Essentially, the WingtraOne provides broad coverage, brilliant resolution and ultra-high accuracy - all in one mapping device.   
 
Up to 80% faster than alternative surveying methods, the WingtraOne drives efficiencies, improves ROI and cuts operating costs, while its exchangeable payloads enable versatility and the ability to capture a range of data sets.
 
The WingtraOne can be used for surveying and GIS; mining and aggregates; construction and infrastructure; and environment and research.
 
Highlights of the WingtraOne drone include:
 
  • Quality Resolution: Down to 0.7 cm/px GSD with 42MP camera.
  • High Accuracy: Down to 1 cm absolute accuracy.
  • Large Coverage: 400ha coverage at 3 cm/px GSD. The WingtraOne also has an operational cruise speed of 35.8 mph (16 m/s). 
  • Long Flight Time: Stay airborne for up to 59 minutes.
  • Increased Safety: Vertical take-off and landing - protecting the drone, payload, and operator.
“Our unique portfolio of commercial UAV's is  complete with the WingtraOne as our fixed-wing  mapping solution. The decision to carry this  system is based on flexibility and outstanding  data deliverables. VTOL expands usability as it  opens up a variety of opportunities that were  impossible with our previous large acreage  mapping offering.”

Bill Edmonson, Lead Mapping Product Specialist, RDO, United States

high accuracy mapping

3x more precise than other fixed-wing drones.

Achieve Up To 1 cm Absolute Accuracy

The VTOL WingtraOne drone repeatedly reaches best-in-class 1 cm (0.4 in) absolute accuracy - when paired with the Sony RX1R II 42MP full-frame sensor and integrated with a PPK module from Septentrio.

This absolute accuracy is around  3x higher than what other fixed-wing drones can achieve, and was previously only available through land-surveying equipment.

Meanwhile, the WingtraOne Sony QX1 PPK Bundle achieves industry-standard 3 cm (1.2 in) absolute accuracy.

A crucial reason for the WingtraOne's high-accuracy levels is the fact that it is a VTOL aircraft. 

Because it can land vertically, risky belly landings which can damage cameras are avoided, meaning that the WingtraOne can carry more expensive and more powerful payloads. 

This includes the WingtraOne's flagship 42MP Sony RX1R II camera, which can capture super-high-resolution images - more than double than a usual 20MP sensor. These higher-resolution images help to build more reliable and detailed orthomosaic maps and 3D models.  

It means that the WingtraOne can map a quarry the size of 240 American football fields in an hour's flight and the resolution of the map is so clear, that you can zoom in and see a coin laying on the ground within the site!  

When integrated with the PPK module, the WingtraOne PPK drone has a built-in PPK GNSS antenna, ensuring best-in-class image geotag correction after the flight with only three GCPs needed to verify the accuracy of the project.
 
"The main advantage of the WingtraOne was the high-quality images from the camera. The Sony R X1R II camera with 35 mm lens makes it possible to cover the  area efficiently at a high altitude." 

Herman Strydom, Strydom & Associates, Namibia

  • MicaSense Altum: For higher accuracy and combined multispectral and thermal capabilities. This sensor is especially useful for evaluating water stress and offers the possibility of larger coverage or higher accuracy depending on needs.

cover larger areas WITH THE WINGTRAONE

14x more efficient than multicopter drones.

One-hour Flight = Up To 400ha Coverage

Thanks to its 55 minute maximum flight time and ability to capture highly-accurate data, the WingtraOne is an ideal solution for mapping large areas.

In just one flight (with a GSD of 1.2 cm/px), this drone can map almost 2x more than a conventional fixed-wing drone and approximately 14x more than multicopter drones.

The accompanying graphic shows how the WingtraOne's coverage compares to other drones. All of the tests were performed with coverage at 1.2 cm/px GSD.

In fact, the WingtraOne can cover 400 ha  (988 ac) in a one-hour flight (with a GSD of 3cm/px, with a Sony RX1R II camera, and PPK module).

Deploying the WingtraOne provides greater mission scope, allowing operators to take on jobs that were previously only possible with manned aircraft.   

"WingtraOne and especially the high-precision PPK drone is a great fit to our high-demand portfolio covering mining,  agriculture, construction and surveying equipment. The combination of VTOL and PPK technologies make WingtraOne finally fill the  gap between multirotor and fixed-wing drones."

Mario Castro, CEO, TTQ de Monterrey, Mexico

benefits of vtol

Deploy in tight spaces and keep payload safe upon landing.

WingtraOne is a vertical take-off and landing drone, known as a VTOL. This brings multiple benefits:

Vertical Take-off

  • No need for a runway or hand launching.
  • Launch in confined areas (min space for take-off: 2m x 2m).
  • Autonomous take-off, safely away from drone operator.
  • Better obstacle avoidance, as the WingtraOne soars straight into the sky.


In-flight

  • After take-off, the drone switches to forward flight mode by tilting 90° in the air.
  • No piloting skills needs; fully automated missions and advanced autopilot operation. Operators can take over and fly the WingtraOne manually, both in hover and cruise modes. 
  • In hover mode, the operator can direct the drone in all directions; crucial for adjusting landing position in changing/moving environments.


Vertical Landing

  • Safe landing, even on rough terrain, such as gravel.
  • Smooth landing - avoiding belly landings - to safeguard integrated payloads and the drone itself.
  • Can land in confined areas (min space for take-off: 2m x 2m).
"We chose WingtraOne because of its versatility: the ability to take off and land accurately on a small piece of land without damaging the camera; switch payloads, and map big fields in windy weather conditions."

Wingtraone DRONE survey mapping solution

A range of data outputs.

Versatile Drone Suitable For Multiple Applications 

Because the WingtraOne can be integrated with a range of cameras, operators can collect a cross-section of data, making it ideal for multiple applications.

Deploying the WingtraOne on a job site can produce a collection of orthomosaic maps,  3D reconstructions, multispectral imagery, and single images.

2D Maps

Create 2D georeferenced orthomosaic maps, which contain the location (X, Y, Z coordinates) and colour information of each point on the map. 

These maps can be used for linear (distance) and surface calculations and alteration monitoring.

3D Models

3D data can be converted into 3D models, point clouds, Digital Service and Digital Terrain models, textured maps and elevation maps, among other things.

These maps and models can be used to calculate volume, distance, surface area and elevation, and analyse topography.

Visual Imagery

Single images and orthophotos can be used in a variety of research areas and across your job site, and can provide a wide range of information.

High-resolution visual imagery is important for regular monitoring, spotting mistakes, project tracking and streamlined communication.

Multispectral Data

Collect multispectral data by pairing the WingtraOne with the MicaSense RedEdge sensor. 

This data can be converted into chlorophyll maps, NDVI layers, Digital Surface Models, and RGB imagery, which can be used to monitor plant health and evaluate surface properties.

Total Control With The Touch Of A Screen

WingtraPilot is a drone software platform to manage how you collect your data with the WingtraOne. It allows you to prepare flight plans, monitor and revise missions mid-flight, and conduct corridor mapping.

Its key features include:

  • Fully Autonomous Missions: Tap the screen and select a mapping area, then send the drone off to capture the data autonomously.
  • Pause/Resume: Pause a mission in-flight or return to home. Resume the missions next time you deploy. 
  • Manual Takeover: The WingtraOne can conduct automated landings, but take over the controls and make adjustments if necessary.  
  • Corridor Mapping: Map long, narrow stretches quickly and easily. This is ideal for railway-track monitoring or pipeline/powerline inspections.
  • Terrain Following: Safe and effective mapping, even in the most mountainous areas.
  • Safety Checklist: Obtain crucial information about battery health and GPS reception, while a checklist will guide you through the pre-flight process, identifying any issues along the way. 
  • Offline Maps: Download offline maps in advance while connected to the internet, then load them upon arrival on site.
  • KML Import:  KML files can be imported directly from GIS programmes. WingtraPilot will build the best flight path to cover the area.
  • PPK Post-processing:  With a WingtraOne and PPK module, high-precision PPK processing will provide centimetre-accurate geotags for flight images.
"The WingtraOne and WingtraPilot is so easy to use, even without any flight training."

René Gerrits, Bio Consult SH, Switzerland
