Wingtra Partners with Kentucky-based Precision Capture to Offer VTOL Drone Print E-mail
Written by Wingtra   
Monday, 16 October 2017

Lousville, KY - September 16, 2017 — Precision Capture have been successfully delivering innovative solutions in 2D and 3D data capture, measurement and imagery for 25 years. With their new distribution partnership with Wingtra, Precision Capture is expanding their UAV offering: A map made by Pix4D, pictures taken by WingtraOne with RX1RII camera.“The WingtraOne is the perfect extension of our UAV offering into the premium segment: it is as easy-to-use as a DJI drone, but gives our clients more area coverage on a single battery and is equipped with very sophisticated cameras that deliver great results” explained Scott Shufflebarger, Lead UAV representative at Precision Capture.

The WingtraOne takes off and lands vertically like a multirotor, but flies like a fixed-wing airplane in air. This efficiency in flight gives it flight time of up to 55 minutes on a single battery, covering anywhere between 690 and 980 acres at 1.2in/px GSD depending on the specific sensor. With its high payload capacities, the WingtraOne offers a variety of powerful sensors to generate high-resolution imagery for orthophotos, 3D reconstructions, cloud points and NDVI maps. Wingtra’s selection include the best-in-class 42 megapixel full-frame Sony RX1RII. Thanks to the vertical landing, the cameras are well-protected and are never at risk of being damaged by belly landings.

WingtraOne is controlled with the intuitive flight planning software, WingtraPilot. The process of planning a survey and going through a short safety checklist takes roughly 5 minutes. Then, with the press of a button, the WingtraOne takes off, collects aerial imagery, and lands — all fully autonomously. The user, thus, does not have to worry about needing any pilot training.

Headquartered in Louisville, Kentucky, Precision Capture is centrally located within a one-day drive of over 60% of the U.S. population. “We are looking forward to bringing this very capable aircraft to our customer base here in the US.” said Scott Shufflebarger from Precision Capture.
