Aeromapper Talon Lite

The affordable BVLOS mapping & inspection drone.

The Aeromapper Talon LITE is a very affordable commercial fixed wing drone designed to offer high performance features. Starting at $5,590 USD, the Aeromapper Talon LITE is a fully autonomous drone that can fly for up to 3 hours and map up to 10 Kms2 (2,479 acres) per flight, completely autonomously, thanks to its new hybrid battery system. This is more than twice the area coverage of the leading brand of fixed wing drones, but at a fraction of the cost. Available payloads include RGB, Multiespectral, HD Video, Thermal. Our professional system is completely modular, customizable and ideal for applications such as surveying & mapping, conservation, forestry, inspection, oil & gas, agriculture, surveillance and scouting.

Why Choose The Aeromapper Talon LITE

The Aeromapper Talon LITE is built for professionals who need the highest level of safety and ease of use, with reliable performance and uncomplicated launch and recovery procedures. The Aeromapper Talon LITE automatically belly-lands in an area as small as a 50 meter long by 7meter wide. If your operations need a parachute equipped drone for recovery in tight spaces we suggest the Aeromapper Talon standard.

Its proven long-range communications system enables users to fly as far as 30kms away from the Ground Station, making it ideal for BVLOS missions (Beyond Visual Line of Sight) and large-scale area mapping.

The Aeromapper Talon LITE is based in our super-successful Aeromapper Talon, a proven UAV system currently operating in more than 45 countries since 2014, accumulating thousands of flight hours, from hot desert & tropical climates to the toughest artic conditions around the globe.

Aeromapper Talon Lite Key Features

Incomparable productivity per flight: the Aeromapper Talon LITE can map up to 10 sq.km (2,479 acres) @125m (400ft) agl in a single flight, offering the best area coverage on the market.

Thanks to its impressive endurance and long range communications link, the Aeromapper Talon LITE is the absolute best data acquisition drone to tackle those very large projects that require centimeter accuracy when ordered with our PPK solution. The PPK system eliminates or greatly reduces the need for GCPs and let you achieve an absolute accuracy of up to 3cm.

Wide choice of sensors available: multispectral, thermal, RGB

The Aeromapper Talon LITE automatically belly lands perfectly every time, even in strong crosswind situations. Minimum area required for an automatic belly landing is 50m long x 7m wide. Requires a path clear of obstacles to perform the approach

The system is modular with interchangeable parts. Spare parts are always kept in stock for immediate shipping worldwide. Save dollars with a drone that is easy to fix in the field; the mission continues no matter what.

Keep a constant eye in the sky: add our new Eyeshot Pro real time video system to patrol very large areas. Ideal for situational awareness, inspection, wildlife observation, surveillance, environmental monitoring, infrastructure monitoring, scientific research, among others.

Field proven BVLOS capabilities thanks to its rock solid long range communications link: fly with confidence as far as 30km away from the operator. Read more here: https://www.aeromao.com/2017/06/19/aeromapper-talon-demonstrates-bvlos-capabilities-by-flying-30km-away-from-operators/
