Wingtra enters new territory with industry-first VTOL drone


Wingtra, the Swiss drone company manufacturing the first high-precision VTOL drone, has signed a partnership agreement with TTQ De Monterrey, a specialist equipment dealer with a strong focus on surveying UAVs.

As part of the company’s framework, TTQ De Monterrey, a Mexican company with more than 20 years of experience in the field, will now be selling Wingtra drones via its domestic distribtuion.

“WingtraOne and especially the newly launched high-precision PPK drone is a great fit to our high-demand portfolio covering mining, agriculture, construction and surveying equipment. The combination of VTOL and PPK technologies make WingtraOne finally fill the gap between multirotor and fixed wing drones,” commented Mario Castro, CEO at TTQ De Monterrey.

WingtraOne PPK offers high accuracy and resolution together with large coverage

The drone takes off and lands as a multicopter but flies in the air as a fixed wing aircraft. This technology is designed to eliminate the risk of damaging the aircraft while landing, lets the drone carry heavier and thus better sensors and still allows mapping of large areas.

With the latest upgrade, WingtraOne PPK drone offers a combination of broad coverage, ultra-high resolution and accuracy down to 1cm.

Justus Bamert, head of sales of the Americas at Wingtra, added: “We are excited to have partnered with TTQ to introduce the WingtraOne to surveyors in Mexico. Wingtra customers will have a tool at their disposal that delivers outstanding results even in the most challenging environments.”

Wingtra develops, produces and commercializes high precision VTOL drones that collect survey-grade aerial data. Wingtra entered the market in early 2017 and has been selling globally ever since. Recently the company has raised additional $5.8m (£4.2m) to meet the demand in 2018 and partnered with biggest surveying equipment dealers across the globe.
