Once again Hummingbird Drone Solutions has a versatile fixed-wing UAV fleet. These are perfect for catching crisp, clear imagery to create a unsurpassed aerial photo of a site, conducting NDVI imaging for plant health analysis right through to capturing imagery to create highly accurate Digital Elevation Models.
Our fixed wing fleet is lead by a Xerospace LI aircraft. The LI aircraft is a sleek, carbon fibre, high endurance and payload aircraft with a 3m wingspan. Unlike many traditional UAV’s it is not a ‘flying-wing (delta wing)’, features a standard wing, rudder and fuselage. This means that it is capable of carrying many different payloads on a ‘quick-change’ platform. The traditional airframe design also allows it to fly at slower speeds, as well as being more stable in turbulent conditions, as compared to a delta wing.
The LI is fully capable (with approval) of operating beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS), is completely autonomous from launch and is equipped with a parachute, for both landing, and redundancy in the event of a systems failure.
