Precision landing at high altitude: 4264 m – record for the SIRIUS PRO!

The Sokkia-Topcon-Shanghai Team did test flights in high altitudes at the Chinese Qinghai Province, including flights at over 5000 m ASL. Despite ground winds powers of 4 to 5 from changing directions, SIRIUS landed only 1 meter away from the target landing spot.

In that effort, the guys broke the record for the highest precision landing so far, congratulations!

We are looking forward for your next tests pushing the limits!
