eBee

The professional mapping drone

Why choose the eBee?

The senseFly eBee is a fully autonomous and easy-to-use mapping drone. Use it to capture high-resolution aerial photos you can transform into accurate orthomosaics (maps) & 3D models.

Efficient

The eBee can cover up to 12 km2 (4.6 mi2) in a single automated mapping flight, while flights over smaller areas, at lower altitudes, can acquire images with a ground sampling distance of down to 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel.

Easy

The eBee is the easiest to use mapping drone on the market—just throw it into the air. It then flies, captures images and lands itself. No piloting skills required!

Safe

The eBee weighs just 700 g (1.5 lb), vastly minimising its kinetic energy. Plus, senseFly’s cutting-edge autopilot manages a wide range of intelligent failsafe behaviours.

Complete

The eBee package contains all you need to start mapping: RGB camera, batteries, radio modem and eMotion software. Then, process and analyse the eBee’s images using software such as Pix4Dmapper (optional).

Cameras & Accessories

Multiple cameras and accessories are available for the eBee, so you need only invest in the configuration that suits your business’ needs.

What our customers say

The target, of course, for any investment, is to break-even. With the drone technology, we paid back both eBees in almost four months.
