When acquiring a mapping or surveying drone, the choice is quickly narrowed to a fixed-wing airplane combined with Vertical Takeoff and Landing (VTOL) for its vastly greater range, versatility and ease of use. Within this segment, there are several…
Skyqraft, a data-driven infrastructure inspection company from Sweden, was granted BVLOS operation permission for the Vertical Technologies DeltaQuad VTOL UAV, to inspect a large portion of the Swedish power grid.Fully AutonomousFlying fully…
Vertical Technologies has successfully integrated the new Sony A7R mark IV on the DeltaQuad Pro #MAP VTOL UAV. This release marks the first VTOL mapping UAV that supports 61 megapixel mapping.Earlier this year Sony announced the release of their…
Sorry it took a while to respond, but lets go:
> not sure about the "new"-ness of this featureI never claimed it was new.

"If you know the voltage, motor IR, motor KV, prop size, type and pitch angle you can calculate thrust. a bit like how eCalc does it.
But from a control perspective the absolute thrust value is not as relevant, its about knowing the scale factors,…"
Looks good, i'll forward this to our other NGO partners, they will surely be interested.
PS: the TEDx link below your post is deadPS2: love the dramatic DeltaQuad picture at 6:50 in the video :)"
"Perhaps i was not completely clear on my previous comment. When i mention voltage i mean the data from the voltage sensor, so you get the exact voltage sent to the motor, this accounts for voltage drop and does not require internal resistance. We do…"
Thank you for your kind feedback :)
> Other onboard sensors have similar or even worse problems than those mentioned
You are correct that drift occurs on the other sensors too, however, the drift on those sensors, although significant to the…"
