RTK and PPK allow you to ensure more reliability with the accuracy obtained, without ground control points. The eBee X is compatible with the industry’s leading base stations.
Our R&D engineers have designed a shock absorbent drone fuselage with an underbelly made of reinforced polypropylene woven mesh.
We have anticipated upcoming drone regulatory frameworks in the U.S. and Europe by having the eBee X ready with built-in Remote ID identification system approved by the FAA and European Union C2 class identification label.
eBee X operators benefit from regulation advantages not available to heavier drones above 2 kg / 4.4 lbs.
The eBee X surveying drone meets the highest possible quality and ground risk safety standards, and thanks to its lightweight design, the effects of ground impact are reduced.
The eBee X has been granted Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) operations permission in Brazil.
The eBee X was approved to run Operations Over People (OOP) in Canada and United States, essential for city mapping and cadastral surveying. It also has remote ID approved by the FAA.
First drone to receive M2 Mitigation Design Verification for SORA process from the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA), essential for getting SORA authorization for BVLOS and OOP in Europe.

The eBee X and its eMotion flight planning software are beginner-friendly, yet packed with advanced features to tackle the toughest jobs. Definitely a smarter way to map.
Designed to restart the mission as soon as the drone lands and to be simply hand-launched.
Operated by one user and easily transported in a backpack with all your gear in one spot.
Automated flight and landing with eMotion mission planning software, which is included.
eBee fixed-wing drones are proven for their unmatched operational safety and ability to deliver high-quality data, from simple to complex missions.
The U.S. Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) drone registration data from 2016 to 2021 confirms that the eBee is the most used fixed-wing drone in the United States.
Automated quick self-diagnosis before every flight
Efficiency is crucial for every mapping project. By using the eBee X aerial photogrammetry drone, you can get the precision you need in a fraction of the required time compared to terrestrial methods or other drones, such as quadcopters.

Safely store and transport everything you need to operate your eBee X in the included backpack.
The ergonomic drone backpack comes with a rain cover and a laptop pocket. It weighs 4.6 kg / 10 lbs empty and 10 kg / 22 lbs when fully loaded.
The eBee X is designed for continuous belly landings without damaging the drone.
Our R&D engineers have created a shock absorbent construction UAS with an underbelly made of reinforced polypropylene woven mesh, able to operate in harsh terrain.
eBee X’s modular design reduces both delays and repairs.
Swap out accessories or make in-field repairs with ease, minimizing downtime.
Maintenance is also easy thanks to our global network of authorized service centers, where you can get your eBee X professional drone serviced locally.
The eBee X fixed-wing drone data is compatible with:
PIX4Dmapper, PIX4Dmatic, PIX4Dcloud, PIX4Dreact, PIX4Dfields, PIX4Dsurvey, Agisoft Metashape, DroneDeploy, Bentley ContextCapture, SimActive, Esri ArcGIS Drone2Map and Trimble Business Center.
eMotion drone flight management software supports up to 4 eBees mapping simultaneously from the same ground station.
Multi-drone flights increase the efficiency of time-sensitive missions, advanced operations, quick situation assessment, data integrity preservation and daily business activities.
“The eBee X can cover most sites in just one flight and with its built-in RTK it is even more economical, saving us yet more time on the ground. These savings allow us, in turn to cut our clients’ costs significantly compared to a terrestrial approach.”
Co-founder, Lerch Weber AG, Switzerland
“In a relatively short time, we generated thousands of images and data with very high accuracy and with several outputs: digital terrain models, point clouds, orthomosaics, spectral mapping, 3D models. In short, the creation of a multilayered archaeological landscape never seen before.”
Dr. Maurizio Forte
Duke University, U.S.
“We chose to use a fixed-wing drone, so we could capture a highly accurate map of the active area in just two flights and one hour of data processing. Speed and simplicity are crucial in this type of project, which is where the senseFly eBee X delivered.”
Director of the Center for Disaster Risk Policy (CDRP), U.S.
