eBee X customer reviews

What our users say

“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.”

“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.”

“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.”
