Outline

This product is an industrial UAV used by a professional pilot to inspect social infrastructure such as aging bridges. This is the world's first industrial UAV with a variable pitch mechanism that controls the pitch angle of the propellers. This provides superior attitude maintenance and operation performance and makes it possible to hold a stable attitude even in turbulence and strong gusts. This UAV can take videos of bridges being inspected from as close as 0.6 meters.
