DOWNLOAD Technical specifications

  • 1. Optional in Turkey.
  • 2. Compatible only when using eBee RTK (version 02 or later) or eBee Plus in standalone mode.
  • 3. Calculated based on the following test conditions: carrying drone’s default supplied camera, GSD of 30 cm (11.8 in) per pixel for eBee / 5.5 cm (2.16 in) per pixel for albris, no wind, moderate weather temp. (18 C/64.4 F), new fully charged battery, flight altitude of 1,000 m (3,280 ft) above ground for eBee/eBee RTK, 200 m (656.16 ft) above ground for albris & take off at approx. sea level, take off point in centre of desired coverage area.
  • 4a. Calculated based on the following test conditions: drone carrying supplied camera, no wind, moderate weather temp. (18 C/64.4 F), new fully charged battery, flight altitude of 2,000 m (6,562 ft) above ground & take off at approx. sea level, take off point in centre of desired coverage area.
  • 4b. Calculated based on the following test conditions: drone carrying supplied camera, no wind, moderate weather temp. (18 C/64.4 F), new fully charged battery, flight altitude of 2,500 m (8,200 ft) above ground & take off at approx. sea level, take off point in centre of desired coverage area.
  • 5. Using drone's supplied camera & based on flight height above ground of 42 m (140 ft). Results also dependant upon environmental conditions (light, wind, surface type).
