The UAV with maximum efficiency

Survey 50 hectares in just 40 minutes

Thanks to its intelligent lightweight design and the specially developed Free Flow Arms (booms with streamline shape), you maximize efficiency with this UAV. The octocopter with camera makes it possible to capture up to 50 hectares from the air within 40 minutes. The high-quality components, such as the highly efficient engines and the custom-made high-performance batteries, allow such long flying times. Quality: Made in Germany.

The ScaraBot X8 has all professional standards as is the case with UAVs offered by other manufacturers. But the UAVs of Davinci Copters additionally meet demands such as maximum efficiency, failure safety and system integration.

The all-in-one solution

Benefit from the bundle of hardware, software, training and service

Our aim is not to offer you just a drone and leave you alone with it. We offer you instead an all-around carefree package, that means a perfect solution combining hardware, software, training and service. With us on your side, you get professional advice.

Without experience and background knowledge, you don't have the required know-how to fly a drone professionally and to create a point cloud based on the data. That's why you learn in our training the handling of drones and their flight characteristics. Our experienced trainers practice with you in the field how to control the drone and to react in a deficiency situation. In order to generate useful results based on the drone data, you learn how to create and analyze point clouds using the offered software. We provide you with everything you need.

ScaraBot X8 with camera

Perfect for all circumstances

Drones are a modern and innovative tool for various applications related to commercial or civil use. With drones, you reach places that are otherwise only accessible with difficulties and at great expense. Simply use drones to capture buildings and landscapes from the air - With ScaraBot X8, you look at the world from another perspective.

Due to its excellent flying times, ScaraBot X8 is suited for numerous fields of applications:

  • Photogrammetry
  • Aerial photos
  • Flight planning
  • 3D maps
  • 3D terrain models
  • Inspection
  • Surveillance & search flights
  • Fire service (overview from a bird's eye view, find hot spots, fawn rescue)
  • Visualization and surveying of infrastructure
  • Resource management
  • Agricultural economics
  • Forestry
  • Planning of construction projects
  • Constructions of roads, tunnels and train paths
  • Civil protection
  • Video production

Based on the georeferenced drone data, you can create 3D terrain models which contain all georeferenced data to calculate volumes, surfaces and distances.

3D DTMs (digital terrain models) via photogrammetry

Long ranges within a minimum of time

Due to the long flying times of ScaraBot X8, you extend the range for captures and thus distance and surface. With attached camera and only one battery, you can fly over up to 50 hectares. When you choose an autonomous route navigation (waypoint navigation), taking the photos can be made automatically in a defined grid.

On the basis of drone data, you can create 3D models of the area and process them as desired.

Drones for aerial photography

Long flying times for optimal results

You need great flying times even for aerial photos, for example when you are waiting for this one second with the optimum light at sundown. Or when you want to take photos of large objects from different directions and find the best perspective for each photo.

Drones for inspection

Gain insights without safety risk

Play it safe and examine high buildings free from dangers by means of camera shots. This way, you don't need to climb up anywhere or put up a scaffolding. The use of drones is especially suited for inspecting industrial facilities.

Mode of operation of drones

The comfortable way tp capture data

ScaraBot X8 allows you to create a flight plan in advance and easily start the automatic flight at the push of a button. But you can optionally control the drone from the ground via GPS.

By means of the software solutions Agisoft and PointCab, you can create a point cloud based on the georeferenced data and a 3D terrain model afterwards. Then, you can derive lengths, surfaces or volumes for the 3D data.

Output formats

The perfect format for your application

In order to generate the desired results on the basis of the drone data, the software solutions Agisoft uand PointCab are perfect. Agisoft creates point clouds based on the captured data. With PointCab, you can analyze and process point clouds afterwards. Thus, you can create 3D models and ortho photos or calculate surfaces, for instance.

The following output formats are available:

  • 2D ortho photos (.jpg / .tif / .png / .kmz)
  • Point clouds (.obj / .ply / .text / .las / .u3d / .pdf)
  • 3D models (.obj / .3ds / .wrl / .dae /. ply / .dxf / .fbx / .u3d / .kmz / .pdf)
  • DEM (.tif / .asc. / .bil / .xyz / .kmz)
