Why choose the eBee with S.O.D.A. Camera?
The senseFly eBee is a fully autonomous and easy-to-use mapping drone. Use it to capture high-resolution aerial photos you can transform into accurate orthomosaics (maps) & 3D models.
The eBee can cover up to 12 km2 (4.6 mi2) in a single automated mapping flight, while flights over smaller areas, at lower altitudes, can acquire images with a ground sampling distance of down to 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel.
The eBee is the easiest to use mapping drone on the market—just throw it into the air. It then flies, captures images and lands itself. No piloting skills required!
The eBee weighs just 700 g (1.5 lb), vastly minimising its kinetic energy. Plus, senseFly’s cutting-edge autopilot manages a wide range of intelligent failsafe behaviours.
The eBee package contains all you need to start mapping: RGB camera, batteries, radio modem and eMotion software. Then, process and analyse the eBee’s images using software such as Pix4Dmapper (optional).
The eBee sets the standard for easy flight planning and management thanks to its acclaimed eMotion software.
Just choose or create your preferred background map. Then use this to define the region you want to map. Next, simply specify your desired ground resolution (down to 1.5 cm / 0.6 inches per pixel) and set your required image overlap.
The rest is automatic: eMotion automatically generates a full flight plan, based on GPS waypoints, calculates the eBees required altitude and displays its projected trajectory.
To ensure your missions success, eMotion even offers a confidence-building simulation mode. This virtual flight simulates wind strength and direction, allowing you to make any flight plan enhancements needed before launch.
The senseFly S.O.D.A. is the first camera to be designed for professional drone photogrammetry. It captures amazingly sharp aerial RGB images, across a range of light conditions, allowing you to produce detailed, vivid orthomosaics and highly precise digital surface models.
