UAV BIRDIE VTOL DRONE

BIRDIE fixed-wing UAS (unmanned aerial system) with VTOL (vertical takeoff and landing) capabilities. The BIRDIE is a complete mapping solution consisting of the fixed-wing platform, dedicated flight controller, PPK, full-frame camera and GSM connectivity for unlimited flight range.

The VTOL capability is delivered via extension modules that can be attached and detached at any time, giving the user flexibility of use. The use of the VTOL extension module is recommended when fixed-wing UAVs might encounter issues due to hard surfaces or lack of proper takeoff and landing space.
