Pick your preference: Tablet, Toughbook laptops, or Smart phone. Waypoint technology software accounts for autonomous flight missions. Navigation software can be easily launched onto computer ground stations, tablets, or smart phones to automate flights.


Impressive carbon fiber features, quality control and durability create the AD1’s signature folding style. The front mounted, vibration-dampened gimbal allows inspectors and pilots the widest possible field of view without any “prop wash” in picture. The pitch axis can rotate a full 180 degrees, transitioning from looking straight down (surveying) to straight up (inspections).


Latest advances in modern technology. Fly missions in three modes: GPS attitude, maintaining altitude and positions; Attitude leveling hold mode (gyro stabilization); and Manual mode. GPS modes are in constant communication with GPS satellites. Intelligent orientation control allows pilots to reorient the direction of the craft.


Add waypoint technology for autonomous flight missions. Navigation software can be easily launched onto computer ground stations, tablets, or smart phones to automate your flight.


Smart ground stations. Program your automated missions with auto take-off and landing. A convenient return-to-home safety function, readily activates, if radio signal is lost.
