Lynx FarScight

Less setup, more coverage.

Lynx FarScight

Cover more ground with industry leading flight time in a hand launched drone. Lynx Farscight flies for up to three hours and is perfect for mapping large areas with high precision and resolution. The aircraft is simple to use, and its Kevlar construction is extremely durable. Takeoff with the press of a button and land in confined areas with a deep-stall.

  • Minimal Setup

    No unnecessary gear. The hand launch takeoff and deep-stall landing are both versatile and simple and do not require any additional equipment onboard or on the ground. The aircraft features a clip-on tail and removable three-piece wing for easy transport and rapid assembly. The entire system packs down into one carry-on size case and one airline checkable case.

  • Benefits

    Map more per flight
    Multiple payload options
    High precision
    Minimize need for ground control
    Operate from confined areas
    Small equipment footprint
    Digitised Linework
    Minimal setup time
    Automated checklist
    Intuitive mission planning
  • Designed for the Field

    Lynx FarScight was designed from the ground up to be a mapping drone. It is a precision handcrafted system and made from the toughest materials available. The aircraft itself is simple, with only three moving parts, and extremely durable to withstand field abuse. A modular payload bay sits beneath the wing allowing users to fly the right camera for job.

  • Flexible Precision

    Achieve centimeter level accuracy with post-processed kinematics PPK GNSS , or activate PPK when needed without any hardware changes to the aircraft.

  • Intuitive Controls

    Swift GCS is your interface to the drone. The built-in checklist features automated preflight steps and an illustrated walkthrough that guides new users through the flying process. Survey planning is powerful yet simple, with intuitive controls and drag and drop waypoints. Swift GCS is optimized for touch and requires minimal computing hardware, making it perfect for field tablets.

 Lynx Farscight features a deep-stall landing; the landing can be manual or autonomous. Specifically, the aircraft is intentionally stalled at a user selected location and lands almost vertically with the wing producing drag instead of lift. This slows down the descent similar to a parachute. The landing is steerable, and the process can even be aborted to resume flying as needed. To help shed energy from landing impact, the wings and tail separate from the fuselage.

Flight time may vary based on environmental factors.

With 24 MP payload, 120 m (400 ft) flight altitude, 65% sidelap.

 

Swift GCS

Designed from the ground up for drone mapping.

Use Swift GCS to map with ease. Swift GCS features powerful yet simple survey mapping tools, with intuitive drag and drop controls. Optimized for touch screens and requiring minimal computing hardware, Swift GCS is perfect for field laptops and tablets.

  • Designed for Mapping

    Mapping an area of interest with Swift GCS is a simple process. Create a polygon from scratch with drag and drop points, or import a KML using the KML to survey tool. New areas drawn can be saved for future use. Adjusting options such as altitude, heading, and overlap will update the survey grid in real-time and can be tweaked at any point. A survey summary displays useful information such as the area size, photo count, and estimated flight time.
