The solid HT-8 flight platform is the ideal companion for professional surveyors who use aerial photography. The HT-8’s stable flying characteristics together with the precision movement of the gimbal allow reliable data to be captured for various tasks related to capturing geodata.
Equipped with the full-frame Sony Alpha 7R camera and Zeiss fixed focal length lens, the Geodata package delivers outstanding data. This data can then be professionally evaluated using optional photogrammetry software.
The package provides the optimal conditions for creating 3D models, performing mapping from the air and carrying out other geodata capturing tasks. The advantage of capturing geodata using airborne drones: the data captured offers significantly higher spatial and temporal resolution than images taken from aircraft or satellites. It is also possible to map small to medium-sized areas simply and flexibly, and in considerably less time. Meanwhile, terrestrial surveying is significantly more time-consuming and slow.
The HT-8 can be deployed at short notice, and when used with the Sony Alpha 7R and the lens provided, is dependable and efficient.
Surveyors who seek a working tool that simplifies processes, delivers outstanding data and speeds up surveying tasks will find in the HT-8 Geodata package the ideal solution.
Optimal navigation and positioning by means of a precision GNSS module: the position data offers a straightforward method of geo-referencing the captured data.
The versatile quick-release mechanism of the precision gimbal allows the sensor unit of the HT-8 to be easily exchanged.

If the task requires it, the HT-8 can be easily fitted with an all-round carbon shield ring that protects the propellers and motors reliably in the event of a collision.
The HT-8 can optionally be supplied with an additional ground station for the co-pilot. The camera operator can then operate the sensor and the camera mount independently of the pilot.
Pre-selected and ready-made high-performance batteries optimised for HEIGHT TECH drone systems.
Video glasses give the wearer an immediate view of the live image from the HT-8.
The robust Multiplex case protects the HT-8 during transport. Transport by air is also problem-free.
The robust accessories case protects the ground station in particular during transport. It also has space for batteries, charger, cameras and replacement parts. With a pull-out handle and two rollers, it is easy to transport.
