Survmatic Australia Nullarbor Ortho Quad


We are an Aussie based start up with a 20 year history in traditional aerial survey with both helicopter and fixed wing platforms. We are also a CASA licensed UAV operation with our own custom made products.

We would like to introduce our mapping quad called the Nullarbor (because its flat, Aussie humour) with an integrated 2 axis gimbal. We wanted a simple 25 min UAV that had the ability to easily pull the camera. We use a 6200 mah 4S and T motor/12 inch props combo.  We like to use the French made Dropix or the Autoquad for this unit, 


The product is made in ABS with both CNC and 3D printing along with carbon tubes etc. We are currently selling this model ready for your mapping missions. we designed this build over 12 months ago.

We have also designed our own controller based on a Spektrum 9 with RFDesign radios and our own custom battery charging system.


In case you were wondering..  Yes its all real..


and the controller

  • I like the design a lot,look forward to seeing it in the air.

  • Hi Survmatic,

    Very nice design and execution.

    Interesting gimbal, sort of reverse of the norm.

    Why are the prop arms extended out so far?

    For 12" props it seems like the prop arms could be a lot shorter without causing any problems.

    Best regards,


  • Dedicated mapping UAV , very sexy !

    where is this product presented a little bit more ?
  • Can you tell us more about the "Surveying" side of the technology? Hardware, Software, etc.

  • Did you achieve your flight time goal of 25 minutes?
  • Cool design!
