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 be covered in each flight. Also improves safety for flying at high altitudes or in windy areas where wind speed may overcome the standard E384’s max cruise speed.

Terrain Follow – Loads in terrain altitude from global SRTM data or can accept custom DEMs. Automatically follows the terrain of the land to ensure a consistent ground sampling distance and to avoid crashing into hills or mountains.

These features will ship on all new E384-LR aircraft ordered from Event 38. Upgrades to existing E384-LR’s are possible with factory testing and refurbishment. Please contact us for more information.

New E384-LR Promises Up to 2,100 Acres per Flight

Akron, Ohio – Event 38, a leading business drone solution provider, opened pre-orders for the E384-LR Long Range Mapping Drone. The E384-LR is a special configuration of the popular mapping drone, the E384. Incorporating a light-weight and high resolution Sony QX-1 camera with state of the art battery technology, the E384-LR can achieve a useful flight time of 110 minutes, covering as much as 2,100 acres (850Ha, 3.3sq mi) at a resolution of 5cm/pixel in a single flight. The E384-LR is expected to begin shipping on December 5th.

Jeff Taylor, CEO of Event 38, says, “Our customers depend on the E384 to produce aerial imagery of large areas from farms in Iowa to the most remote and inhospitable corners of 6 continents. By flying even longer, the E384-LR lets our customers spend less time swapping batteries and more time collecting data.”

Starting at just $4,298 for a complete drone mapping system including sensors and flight software, the E384-LR is also a very economical platform to acquire and maintain.
