“Take-off altitude was 4,150 meters ASL. The flight was performed at BaSu County, ChangDu, Tibet,” the company shared in an email. “This is a new altitude record for us! Thank you to everyone who supported this mission!”

MAVinci manufactures UAS for surveying professionals, designed to enable easy and quick surveying and documentation.

The MAVinci Surveying Sirius Pro is manufactured in Germany. It is a fixed wing UAV with a 1.6-meter wingspan and less than 3-kilogram take-off weight.

The Siruis Pro guarantees high precision without setting control points on the ground, according to MAVinci.

Using a Topcon receiver and navigation system, it precisely measures the camera position for each image, making it equivalent to a control point. With the control points virtually set from the air during the flight, their coordinates calculated in real time.
