Built for Endurance and Portability
The E384-Heavy is a special configuration of the E384 that is built to meet your specifications. Using flaps to increase lift at low speeds, the E384-Heavy can take off and land at up to 9 pounds MTOW. Even at this high weight, it is possible to hand launch and belly-land the aircraft, so you don’t need to carry bulky launch or recovery equipment to the flying site. The larger fuselage volume allows it to carry even the largest cameras in landscape orientation, for the maximum mapping efficiency. The E384-Heavy can cover as much as 1,900 acres (770Ha) at 400′ (120m) AGL or 4,200 acres (1,700Ha) at 3.9cm/pixel.
The E384-Heavy can be modified to carry other payloads like the FLIR Duo Pro R for security applications, or even small parcels for delivery to remote locations. Contact us to discuss a configuration that will work for your project.
