This gravel quarry in Johnson, Vermont (USA) was surveyed with an eBee X drone carrying a senseFly Aeria X camera. The flight height was planned at 122 m (400ft) AED at an estimated GSD of 2.54cm/pix (1 inch). However, because of the depth of the quarry, the final GSD was 3.59 cm (1.41 in)/pixel.

Map Without Limits
The senseFly eBee X is our flagship fixed-wing mapping and surveying drone (UAV). It is lightweight, hand-launched and helps surveyors and GIS professionals collect important aerial mapping data safely and efficiently via a suite of purpose-built mapping cameras. The raw aerial data collected from the drone can be used to create stunning high-resolution orthomosaics or it can be processed with photogrammetry software, such as Pix4Dmapper, to create topographic maps, including DSMs, DEMs, 3D point clouds and more. The topographic data can be used to gain critical project insights and shared across teams for better decision-making. eBee X is also available with RTK or PPK for greater positional accuracy.
Efficient & Precise
eBee X is a proven fixed-wing mapping drone solution designed to meet the exacting standards of surveyors and GIS professionals around the world. Its unique Endurance Extension unlocks a maximum flight time of 90 min—for vast coverage of up to 500 ha (1,235 ac) at 400 ft*—while its available RTK/PPK High- Precision on Demand helps you achieve absolute accuracy of down to 3 cm (1.2 in), without GCPs.
Rugged & Reliable
eBee X is a rugged mapping drone that captures reliable aerial surveying data (orthomosaics, point clouds, DSM, etc.) across project sites—no matter how demanding—thanks to its space-friendly Steep Landing technology, ultra-robust design, live air traffic data and more. eBee X comes with our industry-leading flight planning software (eMotion) and backed by our trusted professional support network.
Whether you’re doing drone photogrammetry or simply creating high-resolution orthomosaics of your project site, eBee X was designed to suit every job thanks to its range of groundbreaking mapping drone cameras. These include the senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D, for stunning 3D reconstructions of vertical environments, the best-in-class senseFly Aeria X RGB photogrammetry camera and the senseFly Duet T for creating geo-accurate thermal maps.
Ebee X Payloads
SenseFly S.O.D.A. 3D
The senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D mapping camera is a unique innovation – a professional drone photogrammetry camera that changes orientation during flight to capture three images (2 oblique, 1 nadir) every time, instead of just one, for a much wider field of view. It is optimised for quick, robust image processing with Pix4Dmapper.
Example Data set captured using SenseFly Ebee X with S.O.D.A. 3D mapping camera
The gravity dam in Salanfe, Switzerland has a storage capacity of 40 million cubic metres. It is 52m high, 40 m wide at the base, with a 608 m top length. This dataset was collected with an eBee X carrying a senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D camera.
