Sensefly – Get Ready to Fly

Well what can this be? A new aircraft from Sensefly, it’s about time.

Some are saying VTOL, I am thinking perhaps aligning with the Blue sUAS program, but only because the airframe is blue in the video! Perhaps it is an even smaller sub 250g platform to bring survey into a regime with much less regulation. Yes, I am just guessing.

The current eBee range is Open A2

Get Ready to Fly – senseFly’s Brock Ryder will unveil the latest innovation in senseFly’s fixed-wing mapping drones for surveying and GIS professionals. Save your spot:

The more I think about it, the more I think I would be releasing a C marked sub 250g wing that has a better sensor than a DJI Mini 2.

Actually anything with a C marking so it can still be used easily in 2023 would be a plan.

All European drones will have assigned a CE-Marking with a number between 0 and 4, that will specify the class of the drone (C0, C1, C2, C3 and C4). Right now we are in a transition period but that will come to an end!

See you at the Webinar.
