What is a U.A.V or Drone?
U.A.V is an acronym for unmanned ariel vehicle. A U.A.V is typically a small aircraft, be it fixed wing or multirotor, that has the ability to be controlled by an operator on the ground.
What do you offer?
We offer a variety of different imaging services allowing you to cost-effectively pinpoint problem areas of your farm allowing you to mitigate and eliminate the issues with those areas and increase the productivity of your farm.
What type of equipment do you use?
For our cameras use multiple iterations of the MapIR camera
- Resolution: 16mp (4,608 x 3,456 px)
- Video Res: 1440p30
- Image sensor: Sony Exmor IMX206 16MP (Bayer RGB)
- + Multiple different filters
Our aircraft are specially built by us allowing us to massively reduce the cost of maintenance and initial purchase. At Landscan we use fixed-wing aircraft, which is the type of aircraft you'd traditionally see at an airport. A fixed wing aircraft allows us to fly for long and carry a much larger payload in terms of cameras, giving only the best quality images.
What are the Limitations?
To conduct our flights we must:
- Abide by CASA rule and limitations.
- Not fly within 30m of people.
- Be able to see the aircraft unaided.
- Fly at a restricted altitude.
- Only fly when the weather permits us.
How much does it cost?
We have a variety of different pricing options please visit our pricing page
Why shouldn't I hire my friend with their drone?
Several reasons, the main being it is illegal for recreational flyers to fly for the purpose of commercial operations. An Operations Certificate (ReOC) and a Remote pilots license (RePL) is required by CASA if the flight conducted is for hire or reward. Hobby grade recreational drones often take poorer quality photos and do not offer the same variety of different imaging options that Landscan drones use.
