Below technical specifications for the Aeromapper 300 was obtained from the manufacturer. Please feel free to contact us with any additional questions.
Wingspan: 3.0m (9.84 ft)
Payload capacity: 650g (1.4 lbs) for 1.5 hours flight time
Construction: Carbon fiber with Kevlar reinforcements
Takeoff: hand-launch, fully automatic.
Camera: Sony a5100 with 20mm lens. More sensor are available. Dual camera setup capable
Takeoff weight: 5350g (11.8 lbs)
Cruise speed: 60 km/h (37.3 mph)
Maximum speed: +90 km/h (+56 mph) - Excellent stability and minimal roll & pitch oscillations in gusty wind conditions due to the low dihedral design, small lateral profile and V-tail rudder control. As a result vibration dampening gimbal is not required for cameras or sensors.
Parachute recovery system: Ultra compact parachute with Kevlar lines. Easily re-packaged in 2 to 3 minutes.
Motor: 530 kV brushless motor.
Battery: 6-cell 4500 mAh. 400 to 600 life cycles. Two batteries required for flight.
Flight Time: 1.5 Hours (with full payload)
Landing: The aircraft repeated passes over desired landing area at 40 meters (131 ft) until parachute is deployed. Belly landing is possible with pilot assistance in auto-stabilization mode. Automatic parachute release on waypoint also available upon request.
Autopilot: Pixhawk by 3DRobotics
Data link range: 2-way telemetry for in-flight commands. 433 MHz, 915 MHz or 868 MHz, +20km (12.4 miles) range.
Control link range: 433 MHz, +50km (+31 miles) range
Max. altitude: about 4500m (2.8 miles) above sea level.
Fail-safe: Automatically returns to home & loiter upon loss of RC link. Other fail-safe routines available
Flight modes: Manual, Stabilize, Return to Home, Fly by Wire, Auto
Wind tolerance: 40 km/h (24.8 mph) in-flight. 25 km/h (15.5 mph) when parachuting.
Telemetry: Battery status, alt, ground speed, compass, attitude, distance traveled, flight time (speech enabled), and much more.
Moving map display: Drone position and heading, commands on map, fly-to-point on map, altitude changes, remote spot camera trigger, mission route, and much more.
Low battery warning: Visual and audible alarm warnings. Thresholds are user definable.
Operating conditions: All weather performance. The drone can fly in light rain. The electronics are completely enclosed.
Mission Planning: Altitude, side and length-wise overlaps, orientation of the lines, start & end waypoints, flight speed and overshoots are user defined. Drone automatically calculates flight time, distance between images, and triggers camera automatically. Distance between lines is calculated automatically according to desired side overlap. A complex mission can be created in 5 minutes or less in the field with no internet access.
User Manual: Included detailed explanations of complete system operation with lots of images, along with videos. Examples of instructional sections include: initial familiarization with the system, battery & camera installation, aircraft setup and pre-flight checklists, how to hand-launch, how to create and execute complete surveys, how to package the parachute, and more.
The Aeromapper 300 is FAA approved in the United States, and complies with all the design standards for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles for Transport Canada.
