WingtraOne GEN II Drone
The WingtraOne GEN II is a fixed-wing drone designed for high-precision aerial mapping and surveying applications. It is equipped with a high-resolution camera that can capture images with up to 42 megapixels and a PPK (Post-Processed Kinematics) GPS system that provides accurate geotagging of the images. The drone is capable of covering large areas efficiently, with a flight time of up to 55 minutes and a maximum coverage of 1 km² per flight. Its vertical take-off and landing capability make it suitable for use in tight or inaccessible areas. The WingtraOne GEN II is also equipped with advanced safety features, including redundant sensors and fail-safe systems, to ensure reliable and safe operation.
Get your survey data faster
With the special features of the WingtraOne mapping drone, you can perform more work—whether it’s working on another project in the field or analysing data at the office—while spending less time flying.
“Two years ago, we utilised a multicopter drone to map the same road, covering 3 kilometres (1.8 km) of road every day. We currently use WingtraOne to travel the entire 22 km (14 mil) road in the same amount of time.
Survey more in a single flight
You may now take on enormous projects that were previously difficult to map with a drone, whether it be a roadway, an industrial complex, or a mine. You only need a few hours for it.
“With any other platform we have evaluated, we could not have finished a project this scale in a timely and cost-effective manner.”
Cut your costs
Fewer workers in the field for shorter periods of time due to faster data gathering and more coverage translate into lower man-hour expenses for data collecting.
WingtraOne’s camera never touches the ground, preventing debris from damaging the lens and extending the life of the equipment.
“Using a WingtraOne, we conducted a survey of 300 hectares (741 acres) in less than two hours. Due to their coverage restrictions or the necessity for takeoff and landing space, traditional drones would not have been able to complete this mapping operation.”
WingtraOne offers the best-in-class absolute horizontal accuracy, down to 1 cm (0.4 in), thanks to a built-in multi-frequency PPK GNSS receiver and a 42 Megapixel sensor (GCPs)
We always do ground control and a double and triple check because we are a surveying firm. But, we are finding less and less need to do so because WingtraOne data is always accurate enough to use directly without the requirement for GCPs.

- Max sustained wind on the ground (Wind measured on the ground by the wind tool provided in the Wingtra pilot box (average over 30 seconds): 8 m/s | 29 km/h | 19 mph
- Flight speed: Operational cruise speed – 16 m/s (35.8 mph) | Climb / sink cruise – 6 / 3 m/s (13.4 / 6.7 mph) | Climb / sink hover – 6 / 2.5 m/s (13.4 / 5.6 mph)

- Weather: IP54, not recommended to fly in fog, rain and snow
- Ground control points required: No (with PPK option); using 3 checkpoints to verify the accuracy is recommended
- Auto-landing accuracy: < 2 m (< 7 ft)
- Payload: Using a heavier payload reduces flight time. For example, when switching from the MicaSense RedEdge-MX camera to the heavier Sony RX1R II camera, the flight time reduces from 59 minutes to 54 minutes.
- Altitude above sea level: As the air gets thinner with increasing altitude above sea level, drone flight time is reduced. At the same time, WingtraOne will fly faster in high altitudes, which means that the coverage is only marginally reduced. For example, the RX1R II came- ra covers 400 ha (988 ac) in 54 minutes at 0-500 m (0-1640 ft) above sea level and 350 ha (865 ac) in 42 minutes at 2000 m (6562 ft) above sea level (with 3 cm (1.2 in)/px GSD).
- Transition height: Because the WingtraOne uses significantly more energy while hovering, the transition altitude affects flight time. A higher transition altitude will result in a reduced flight time.
- Wind: In stronger winds, drones consume more energy while flying and landing, which means missions will end up with shorter flight times.
- Temperature: As temperature influences air density, it impacts flight time directly. Generally, higher temperatures mean lower flight times.

- The RX1R II camera can cover 30 percent more area at 3 cm (1.2 in)/px GSD resolution than the a6100 camera in the same amount of time.
- On the other hand, if you need to fly at a limited altitude, for example at 120 m (400 ft), the a6100 covers more area than the RX1R II. The flight with the a6100 results in a GSD of 2.4 cm (0.93 in)/px, which is a lower resolution compared to the 1.5 cm (0.6 in)/px of the RX1R II. Considering this, it is really important to choose the right configuration for your use case and environment.
- An important point that tends to get missed when focusing on flight time numbers is that job time (and efficiency) is actually not about flight time, but rather about how fast you can acquire data on a given area. For example, compared to muliticopers, the WingtraOne can acquire data up to 8x faster. And compared to most fixed-wings it’s twice as fast. So in many cases, the right camera and settings can get you the data you need faster, and faster in fact means less flight time.
- Up to 8x faster than multicopter drones
- Up to 2x faster than standard fixed-wing drones
