FB3 Cargo Drone and tree planting in Southern Bavaria
FlyingBasket obtained cross-border operation authorization by the Federal Aviation Office in Germany for the operation of transportation of 2.000 young trees. The transportation took place near the valley of Aschau, Southern Bavaria. The drone delivered trees to 18 planting locations up in the mountains near the famous Kampenwand. With the help and guidance of experienced forestry professionals from BaySF, all the trees got transported safely to the pertinent locations defining the operation a success.
The project was carried out by the FB3 cargo drone, given its capacity of carrying heavy payloads under the strictest safety measures. Its redundant construction and robust design make the FB3 suitable for transportation and many other types of applications, such as civil protection, cable stretching, monitoring and many other customized services.
Equipped with Veronte Autopilot
The FB3 is equipped with Embention’s Veronte Autopilot, a high reliability autopilot developed according to the DO178C and DO254 standards from manned aviation. Embention is a leading company in the UAV industry, with 15 years of experience in the development of autopilots and components for UAVs and ready to fly drones for professional and military applications.
