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 […]
