The HT-8 C180 can be used to carry out professional inspections of buildings, industrial plants, energy systems and other technical structures. It is always best suited to situations in which inspections must be performed on a larger scale and at a high level from the air. This flight system offers the great advantages that it can easily reach parts of industrial plants, energy systems or other structures that are situated at height or otherwise difficult to access. With a flight time of up to 20 minutes, the HT-8 C180 is also well suited to more extensive inspections.
The 180-degree gimbal of the HT-8 C180 enables the camera to be swivelled not only 90 degrees downward but also 90 degrees upward.
Accordingly, almost any desired camera angle can be obtained, from orthoimages to overhead shots of buildings and structures. This is a decisive feature particularly in the field of building inspections, e.g. for inspecting bridges or industrial plants.
Unlike the situation with flight systems on which the gimbal is situated beneath the body, the camera can also be pointed upward.
The flexibility of camera integration makes the HT-8 C180 particularly mutable. Sensor systems can be fitted easily and brought into operation in just a few steps. This flight system can be technically converted in a minimum of time: the user can thus switch very quickly between a high-resolution full-frame camera, a stabilised video camera, a thermal imaging camera, and a multispectral camera.
The flat, broad construction of the flight system assures very high wind stability at up to 55 km/h and highly dynamic flying characteristics. Thanks to the tuck-away arms, the device is nonetheless easy to transport. The HT-8 C180 is supplied in a practical case in which the flight system can be transported safely and securely to its site of use.
If required, the flight system can also be powered by a single battery, to increase the payload.
The Inspection package is only one example configuration. The flight system can be adapted flexibly to various applications and needs and can be equipped and modified appropriately by HEIGHT TECH.
Made from ultra-lightweight carbon – less weight, bigger payload.
For greater safety: collision protection that is easy to attach to the booms when needed.
The flight system is easy to transport and assemble thanks to a practical tuck-away system. It can then be assembled quickly on site and is ready for use in two minutes.

If the task requires it, the HT-8 C180 can be easily fitted with a carbon shield ring that protects the propellers and motors reliably in the event of a collision.
The HT-8 C180 can optionally be provided with a second ground station for the co-pilot, who can then operate the sensor system and the gimbal independently of the pilot.
Pre-selected and ready-made high-performance batteries optimised for HEIGHT TECH drone systems.
For improved sight: video glasses give the wearer an immediate view of the live image from the HT-8 C180.
With the transport case, the HT-8 C180 can be brought to the deployment site safely and reliably. Even transporting the flight system as airfreight is straightforward.
The robust accessories case protects the ground station in particular during transport. It also has space for batteries, chargers, cameras and replacement parts. With a pull-out handle and two rollers, it is easy to move.
