The senseFly eBee X is the fixed-wing drone for all your mapping needs. It is designed to boost the quality, efficiency, and safety of your data collection and has a camera to suit every job. The coverage and accuracy are designed to meet every project's requirements and can work on virtually every type of site. The eBee X is produced by senseFly, a subsidiary of Parrot, which makes sense, as Parrot is one of the industry leaders in drones for mapping and agriculture applications. The eBee X is marketed as the “fixed-wing drone for all your mapping needs”, suited to applications from agriculture to surveying to construction to mining. Its adaptability comes in large part from the options of cameras and sensors that can be used on the fixed wing to fit your information gathering needs. The eBee X and the Bluegrass are different in size, due to the wingspan of the eBee X since. The Bluegrass is slightly heavier, weighing in at 4lbs. The eBee X is the lighter of the two, weighing in between 2.2 and 3lbs, depending on the camera and battery. The eBee X is capable of a much longer in-flight time and has removable wings for transport. The eBee X is hand launch for taking off, and has an automatic landing. The mapping route and landing area for the eBee X is user-programmed in before the flight as there is no handheld controller for the fixed wing. Compared to the Bluegrass which can be manually controlled for taking off and landing.

One of the major functional differences between the eBee X and the Bluegrass is the payload options. The eBee X, while not coming equipped with any one standard camera, is much more versatile in its applications because you can add on any of six or more camera/sensor options, each of which is uniquely suited to a specific industry use.The eBee X comes with eMotion, a flight planning software program that is user-friendly yet powerful, allowing you to select flight paths, assistance features and other mission planning tools for every application. The eBee X is an autonomous flight drone meaning there is no remote controller. Before the flight on the computer, the user plans the route then launches the drone, the drone will then begin its flight path. Once done it will land where specified on the eMotion software before the flight. The eBee X is compatible with the following payload options:
The senseFly S.O.D.A. was the first camera designed for professional drone photogrammetry and has quickly become the industry standard. It captures amazingly sharp aerial images, across most light conditions. These images are then used to produce detailed, vivid orthomosaics and ultra-accurate 3D digital surface models.
The senseFly S.O.D.A. 3D is one step up from the S.O.D.A. in that it changes orientation during flight to capture three images (2 oblique, 1 nadir) for a much wider field of view. It is compatible with Pix4Dmapper, for quick, robust image processing.
The senseFly Duet T (Left Image) is a unique dual-camera thermal mapping setup. It can be used to create geo-accurate thermal maps together with digital surface models quickly and easily.
Parrot Sequoia+ is the smallest, lightest multispectral sensor ever released. It captures images across four defined, visible and non-visible spectral bands, plus RGB imagery, in just one flight.
senseFly Corridor is specialized for mapping of linear infrastructure and sites. This is actually a combination of senseFly S.O.D.A./eMotion software. The camera is housed in portrait position, as a result requiring 30% fewer images to map the same linear route, making it that much easier and faster to acquire and process the images to produce a map.
