Wingtra with VTOL

The first thing that gets your attention with the Wingtra is that it supports vertical take off and landing, VTOL – impressive.

The VTOL capability allows the WingtraOne to ascend and move like a helicopter. For the mapping mission it transitions into forward cruise flight and matches the endurance and speed of fixed-wing airplanes. In order to land, the WingtraOne switches back to hover flight and descends vertically.

The camera is easily swapped in the unit and it is supplied with WingtraPilot for mission planning, collection and processing. Wingtra claims that ground control is not required with the PPK – post processed kinematic option. Most of the research that I see says you are better off to use at least some ground control, but this is worth investigating.
