UK-based commercial drone specialist COPTRZ has locked in an exclusive deal with Swiss company Wingtra to become the primary UK distributor of the Wingra fixed-wing VTOL drone for mapping and surveying.
Wingtra’s flagship drone, the WingtraOne, is a specialist fixed-wing UAV capable of surveying vast areas of land with a flight time of up to 55 minutes.
The UAV, which is designed to bridge the gap between traditional multirotors and fixed-wing drones, features vertical take-off and landing (VTOL) that enables the operator to safely use the drone without searching for appropriate take-off sites.
The WingtraOne, built to work alongside the WingtraPilot flight planning software, is completely autonomous, with limited flying experience required by the operator.
Steve Coulson, founder and managing director of COPTRZ, said: “The WingtraOne is a unique piece of kit and I am delighted to be able to announce this partnership as we continue to enable some of the UK’s largest businesses to benefit from drone technology.
“With the ability to integrate with our current partners such as MicaSense and Pix4D, the WingtraOne will enable COPTRZ to continue offering read-to-use, integrated solutions to surveying organisations.”
The partnership will further strengthen COPTRZ’s position as a leading provider of complete drone surveying solutions, having already delivered projects to firms within the industrial space, including Seven Trent Water, BAM Construction and Veolia.
