Droneflight and QuestUAV: A New Partnership.
Droneflight is taking on QuestUAV products that will expand its current foreshore survey work. Droneflight’s Head Quarters is less than 40 miles South of QuestUAV’s Manufacturing Base. The advanced QuestUAV PPK Datahawk aircraft will complement their current range of multirotor drones.
QuestUAV embarked on a lengthy Research and Development project spanning 3 years to enable the Datahawk to perform with Post Processing Kinematics (PPK) to deliver Ultra High-Accuracy Precision. The Datahawk PPK has had a good response all over the world so no surprise that a company on their door step was interested in the product.
Nigel King, CEO of QuestUAV, said ‘The Datahawk PPK is a great little aircraft and very well priced; I’m sure this fixed wing choice by Droneflight will help them move forward quickly and with minimum outlay. Andrew of Droneflight said he wanted a fixed wing tough enough and ugly enough to take a good beating; he won’t be disappointed”
Andrew Griffiths, CEO of Droneflight said ‘Working with QuestUAV was a just a sensible business decision. They are a UK based manufacturer so liaison, training and repairs are more easily managed than with a foreign company. We do a lot of foreshore work where PPK is ideal, so the Datahawk PPK, with its attractive pricing and rugged capability, made it a winner for us.’
The Datahawk PPK carries the highly regarded Septentrio Asterex L1/L2/L2/L5 with GPS, GNSS, GALILEO, BEIDOU and others. With the most advanced antijamming technology on the market it is integrated at a price point into the Datahawk that is placed well below the competition.
For UK and European customers within reach of QuestUAV training centre, it can make a big saving when entering the single operator, fixed wing, PPK market.
Droneflight also has a training division, DronePartners that is a CAA NQE and provides specialist inspection and PIX4D training. The partnership will explore training opportunities for both companies.
QuestUAV is the longest running fixed wing manufacturer based in the UK. They Design, Build and Fly small fixed wing unmanned aircraft (sUAV) that carries sensors including high-resolution cameras, infrared, thermal, multispectral and video surveillance. Their network of clients spans across 6 continents and contains strong links with World-Leading Universities and Research institutions.
