/// Tight UAV payload integration for maximum functionality.

Substantial functions of each camera are thus directly controllable with the Mobile Ground Station. Every payload, every camera model that we offer is specifically modified and mechanically as well as electronically integrated in the camera mount. The electrical system of the flight system supplies the payload’s power.

  • Example – Sony Alpha 7. Functions available and partially adjustable functions on the ground: photo trigger, video start/stop, play mode start/stop, aperture and exposure.

/// Flexibility on the highest level – with plug & play:


Attach the camera and take off! You can spontaneously change the payload at any time to get the best project results with the most suitable camera system. The system identifies the chosen payload. All parameters and functionalities are immediately available on the Mobile Ground Station. This means: Attach the camera and take off in less than a minute!


/// Active stabilization & vibration damping with the AscTec Camera Mount.


The AscTec Camera Mount is optimized for flight and compensates sudden maneuvers or gusts. Horizontal correction and vibration damping stabilize the image and simplify post-processing. Razor-sharp gigapixel panoramas are even possible in strong winds. Impress with sovereignty on set, even when the conditions are extremely windy.


/// Always up to date:


Our range of payloads is dynamic. We assess and test every camera novelty on the market for its suitability for professional aerial images. The focus is definitely on small and lightweight, as functional as possible and performance-optimized – and, by all means, integrable in order to meet professional requirements. We do not offer you an aerial vehicle that takes some kind of picture of something in some kind of quality, but a superior, professional aerial camera.
