OnyxStar® FOX-C8 HD LIDAR - Complete system for aerial laser scanning

Available on a per order basis

  • Model: RTF_ONYXSTAR_FOX-C8HD_LIDAR (41976)

Fully integrated system for aerial 3D laser scanning including: a ready-to-fly OnyxStar® FOX-C8HD drone with redundant MikroKopter® electronics, the YellowScan® LIDAR* Mapper, the carbon fixing set, a Graupner MX-20, batteries and charger, a transportation case and several accessories.

* Ultra-light standalone lidar system (laser scanner, GNSS, AHRS, processing unit)

This drone is approved by the DGAC in France in category E, for scenario S1 and S2.

This aircraft includes the all GPS functionalities allowing to navigate autonomously (automatic take-off and landing, waypoints flights, position and altitude hold, back to home, POI - points of interest, etc).

A delay is needed to deliver this system.
