We have been selling our AeroMapper UAV as a kit so far, and we are glad to announce our new Ready To Fly version is available now. Basically this is our second option which includes installed servos, motor and ESC, batteries, RC transmitter, and even battery charger.
We have our first batch in stock. Please note that availability status change very fast for now, as this is on a first come first serve basis. Anyway within the next month our plan is to keep units in stock always ready to ship!
We are very excited to announce also that our third option will be available pretty soon, which will include ArduPilot Mega 2,0 installed and basically ready to fly! This make the AeroMapper UAV a very hard to beat combination for a high-end fully-composites UAV for remote sensing and photomapping. This option (Option C on our website) will be priced at less than $4K !! (Including electronics, batteries, RC Transmitter, chargers, etc., camera and autopilot).
Also, in about two months our parachute recovery module will be available and can be easily installed in any of the AeroMapper UAV options, which share the same airframe.
A cool feature on our design is that all the parts are completely modular. For example, if you need to repair or change the fuselage, just easily detach the Payload Bay Module which contains almost all the electronics. This way you don’t have to uninstall or reinstall things like the autopilot, camera, ESC…. Just add the motor, elevator and rudder servos to the new fuselage, reattach the Payload Bay Module and you are back into the air in no time. This is especially helpful when you are in the field mapping or doing jobs and when time is key. Spare parts always available in stock, at very reasonable prices.
