eBee The professional mapping drone

PARROT


Collections: Parrot Drones

Type: Mapping Drone



Use this fully autonomous drone to capture high-resolution aerial photos that you can transform into accurate orthomosaics & 3D models.

4 reasons to choose the eBee

Map more, more accurately

The eBee can cover up to 12 km2 (4.6 mi2) in a single automated flight, while flights over smaller areas, flown at lower altitudes, can acquire images with a ground sampling distance (GSD) of down to 1.5 cm (0.6 in) per pixel.

No flying skills required

The eBee is the easiest to use professional drone on the market, used by thousands of customers around the world. To launch it, just throw the eBee into the air! It then flies, captures images and lands itself. However you can always alter its flight plan or land manually if required.

Because safety matters

Thanks to its ultra-light construction the eBee weighs just 700 g (1.5 lb), vastly minimising its impact energy. It also features a safety-conscious rear-facing propeller and senseFly’s cutting-edge autopilot, which manages a wide range of intelligent failsafe behaviours.

Your complete solution

The eBee package contains all you need to start mapping: a high-res RGB camera, batteries, radio modem and eMotion, our highly acclaimed flight planning and control software. Then just process and analyse the eBee’s images using professional image processing software, such as Pix4Dmapper.

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 eBee’s required altitude and displays its projected trajectory.

To ensure your mission’s 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.

Nothing is easier to operate than the eBee. Just shake the drone three times to start its motor, then throw it into the air—no catapult or additional accessories required!

The eBee’s eMotion software displays the aircraft’s key flight parameters, its battery level and its image acquisition progress, in real time, while the artificial intelligence inside the eBee Ag’s autopilot continuously analyses onboard IMU and GPS data to control and optimise every aspect of the drone’s flight. 

This proprietary autopilot also manages a wide range of intelligent failsafe behaviours, improving safety and security still further.

Need to make an adjustment? Reprogram the drone’s flight plan and landing zone mid-flight. Or in the case of any issue, tell it to immediately hold its position, return home or land.
