E386 Now Equipped with Parachute Recovery

Due to popular demand, the E386 aircraft now supports automated parachute recovery for landing in confined areas, on rugged terrain, or in territories requiring a parachute for safety purposes. The parachute is deployed automatically by a command built into the mission. The E386 also retains popular features of the E384-LR such as terrain follow and […]

FLIR Vue Pro Radiometric Sample Data Now Available

Thermal imagery, with its lower resolution and contrast, can be particularly challenging to collect at high quality and even more challenging to stitch into an orthomosaic. With a radiometric sensor, it usually makes sense to perform the actual image analysis individually for each image. For visualization purposes though, creating an orthomosaic does help provide a […]

E384-Heavy Configuration Now Available

The E384-Heavy is a special configuration of the E384 that is built to meet user 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 […]

42MP Full Frame Sony RX1R II Now Available

After extensive testing, Event 38 is releasing another all-new camera option for E384/6 users. The Sony RX1R II is a 42 Megapixel, full frame camera that produces the highest quality imagery ever from an Event 38 aircraft. The RX1R II is able to produce ground resolutions of 1.35cm/pixel at 100m AGL flying height. It can be […]

Event 38 is proud to announce the addition to our lineup of our smartest and most integrated imaging sensor ever, the Sony R10C. The R10C is Sony’s camera made specifically for embedded applications. Sony grants Event 38 access to the full camera controls available to the internal software. This allows us an unprecedented level of […]

Design Considerations For Long Range, Light Logistics Drones

Earlier this year, WeRobotics, in association with Peru Flying Labs, completed medical cargo delivery trials in the Peruvian Amazon. They released a very thorough report on their experiences, which can be found here. Event 38 participated in the trials by customizing aircraft for longer endurance flights, higher gross weights, and dual R/C control capability, though we […]

E384-LR Adds Two New Custom Software Features

All new E384-LR Aircraft will now feature the addition of two new features designed to make them even more reliable and consistent for mapping large areas. Wind Resist – Automatically optimizes flight speed to balance efficiency and ground coverage when headwinds reduce forward progress. Speeds up progress on windy days and improves the area that can […]

All New Scout Drone Now Available

The much anticipated Scout drone is now available from Event 38 and worldwide partners. The Scout is designed to be a small, lightweight and transportable drone that falls under the 2kg exception several countries have made for flying UAS with fewer restrictions. Its small size also makes it easy for beginner drone users to approach […]

QX1 Companion Computer Now Available

Event 38 is today announcing the release of a Companion Computer to the Sony QX1 camera. The companion computer is a fully integrated solution for streamlining the mapping and geotagging process on the E384, E386, and other Pixhawk-powered drones. It allows users to completely bypass the normal geotagging post-processing step. This relieves a burden on operators […]

Mapping with the new Event 38 Companion Computer

The companion computer is a fully integrated solution for streamlining the mapping and geotagging process on the E384 and E386. It allows users to completely bypass the normal geotagging post-processing step. This relieves a burden on operators running frequent missions, and improves the geotag accuracy of those missions at the same time. That can lead […]
