The Draganflyer X6 electric RC helicopter provides stunning high resolution aerial video and pictures, so why not use it to get pictures of an archaeology site?
One of the best ways to analyze any archeological dig is to get an aerial view of the entire scene. Using a full size aircraft can be cumbersome and expensive. You can send the Draganflyer X6 helicopter to survey almost any site in instants, and for a fraction of the cost of hiring a full size aircraft. It can also be useful to get time laps photos of the site, as the dig progresses. Why use a full scale aircraft for this, when you can send the Draganflyer X6 helicopter up at any time?
An aerial photo is preferable because it can illustrate the natural relationship between the components of an archeological site. The Draganflyer X6 helicopter can be programmed to fly over a site at a constant altitude, via an onboard GPS receiver or barometric pressure sensor. This lets you produce scale maps of an entire archeological site. You can use this to precisely measure the distances between the different objects at an archeological site. Because of its altitude holding capability, the Draganflyer X6 helicopter can take pictures of objects at differing positions, at the same altitude. The images can then be used to create a stereoscopic projection, so that viewers can visualize the depth of the various on site objects.
Choose from a large selection of cameras, including HD video, low light, still, and FLIR cameras, or change them depending on the individual site or time of day / weather conditions.
Get a bird's eye view of any dig with the Draganflyer X6 helicopter.
The Draganflyer X6 is the ultimate environmental research tool. It is able to survey almost any area, including icebergs, marches and deserts, mountains and flat plains. Send the Draganflyer X6 to get outstanding pictures and video of relevant environmental situations.
Use the Draganflyer X6 to get aerial pictures of any area of environmental concern. Setup takes only a few minutes, so you can take off, get your pictures and video, and then land without disturbing the situation being surveyed.
The Draganflyer X6 is able to be used in almost any situation. Forget about fragile electronics that can be damaged by moisture and impacts, because the Draganflyer X6 comes standard with a military grade carrying case, which it neatly folds into for safe storage.
A flight time around 20 minutes (without payload) guarantees that you won't miss a shot due to low batteries. When it is time to recharge, use the portable charging station and get airborne again fast. It can be run off of either a 110 volt wall outlet, or the built in rechargeable battery. This means that you can use the Draganflyer X6 where AC power isn't always available, such as remote locations of environmental interest.
Use the Draganflyer X6 RC helicopter to survey areas of geological interest. It is the perfect platform for surveying remote areas and getting outstanding aerial video and pictures. You can see an entire landscape at a glance, so you can pursue your field of research with maximum efficiency.
Hiring full scale aircraft is expensive. Instead of using a full size helicopter or airplane, the Draganflyer X6 helicopter can be used to get short range aerial video and pictures, where the expense of a full scale helicopter is unjustifiable. It your team wants to know what's over the next ledge, send the X6 to take a look and fly back.
The Draganflyer X6 helicopter can be flown ahead of any expedition, to minimize risk to human life. Let the UAV take pictures and video of what's ahead to keep your team safe.
An aerial photo can show all the details of a large area at a glance. The Draganflyer X6 helicopters advanced autopilot can hold and maintain altitude, using a GPS unit and barometric pressure sensor. This means that you can produce scaled maps of entire areas using the Draganflyer X6 helicopters on board camera.
A rugged and portable travel case and charging station help you maximize flight time. You can fold the Draganflyer X6 helicopter up and neatly store it in a military grade case. This will protect it from the rigors of field work.
