Aligned to your business growth

Engineered by professional for professionals, the Microdrones’ mdMapper1000PPK is German engineered throughout the entire solution design, resulting in industry-leading flight times, incredible resistance to harsh conditions and smart integration. Its Post-Processing Kinematic (PPK) ability which combines high-resolution aerial photography with high-accuracy topographic data, features a dual band GPS/GLONASS receiver (on board) to allows cm-level position referencing of orthomosaics and 3D models and minimising ground control points (GCP).

Resilience. Convenience. Performance.

The perfect solution for users that desire professional outcomes without breaking the bank. Perfect for those that plan to upgrade to DG in the future and are happy to at PPK level with 1-3 ground control points.
The Microdrones mdMapper molding process keeps all electronics and wiring protected from the elements. The system is resistant to rain, sand and salt, so you can fly in almost any conditions
The robust carbon fibre construction makes easy work of a rough landings and also insulates interior components so you can fly at more extreme temperature and humidity levels.
