Industrial Survey Drone for Construction and Mining
The DATAhawk Drone
Fly more days, fly more missions, achieve construction grade data with minimum downtime.
The DATAhawk Survey Drone has many benefits when it comes to overall performance including larger sensors, better wind performance and gimballed cameras are key factors that the DATAhawk benefits from.
Providing easy acquisition of accurate geodata for survey mapping and GIS professionals, this survey drone will automatically convert your high-res data into geo-referenced 2D orthomosiacs, 3D models and point clouds giving fast and reliable results... every flight.

Look no further. The DATAhawk is your answer.
A Natural Upgrade
Bigger and Better. There are a few sub 1kg drones on the market that are excellent in what they can achieve, but due to their size become limited in payload and performance, particularly in higher or turbulent winds.
We asked our customers who are already users of small fixed wing drones what they want and their answers were as follows:
- A survey drone and system that we can have more control of and get more out of as a result
- Easy launch (we have three methods of launch - Hand, Airlock and Launch Line)
- Parachute and Autolanding capability
- A drone that will fly further and manage higher winds
- A survey drone that we can be trusted (and trained) to fix ourselves in the field or back at base when it gets damaged and run our own maintenance and servicing schedule
- A really good, gimballed camera that we can control in auto settings and manual settings for optimised data quality.
A hand-launched, 2kg drone that is exceptionally easy to launch with para-recovery for safe operation in confined environments.
The DATAhawk Survey Drone is available with the new QuestUAV AirDock Drone Launch System and Mini-Zip Drone Launch for high altitude operations.
Our unique launch systems allow more efficient launches for different environments and safety requirements and provide greater separation between Pilot and aircraft during the safety-critical launch phase of a mission.
Workflows. Learn the whole process of creating a top quality, sellable, orthomosaic right from pre-survey to a client deliverable. This classic workflow is one of many QuestUAV produces for professional users.
The survey, agriculture, 3D, video flythrough, volumetric calculation, NDVI and many more workflows unravel the secrets to creating high quality, profitable data.
Our online training will get you airborne. However to get the most from your DATAhawk Survey Drone, we recommend a full-time two or three-day training course with QuestUAV trainers, engineers and data processors, held at our technology centre in England.
Enrol on our dedicated DATAhawk online training course which includes everything you need to know in order to get airborne safely and operate in your own environment.
The package includes written content, videos and practical learning. The course also includes dedicated, face to face, online consultation time with a QuestUAV DATAhawk engineer.
Current Users. Do you already own, use and benefit from the strengths of a full-size QuestUAV Q-200 Surveyor drone or Q-200 Agri drone?
Smaller Option. Many operators around the world fly our drones successfully on a daily basis in challenging surrounding, but look for a smaller drone that encompasses all the benefits of the larger machines, that is lighter and easier to launch.
Enter the DATAhawk. Bringing the quality of the QuestUAV brand and its heritage into a powerful, smart and lightweight fixed wing solution.
Easy Upgrade. And if you already own a QuestUAV then the upgrade is even simpler. Same planning tools, similar workflows, simple accreditation, same software. Just a smaller drone.
“During training, you get under the skin of the company and that makes the difference. You work with the people that actually make the UAVs.”
