The 810 airframe is purpose built to carry the largest mirrorless or Broadcast quality cameras such as:
Blackmagic Micro Cinema Camera
Miniaturized digital film camera for remote use/PWM and S.Bus for use with remote controls.
Includes Super 16 size sensor with 13 stops of dynamic range
Use a wide range of lightweight professional photo lenses
Captures true 12-bit log digital film quality images without the artifacts you get on heavily compressed 8-bit H.264 files used on small consumer action and DSLR cameras.
Sony α6300 E-mount camera with APS-C Sensor
24.3 MP Exmor® APS HD CMOS sensor with BIONZ X™ image processor
Fast Hybrid Autofocus (phase and contrast detection)/ The world’s fastest Auto Focus performance
Included One-touch remote lets you use a smartphone or tablet as a viewfinder and remote control for the digital camera
Newly employed S-Gamut/S-Log enable wide dynamic range (max. 1300%) shooting for more expressive movie-making in post-production.
4K recording (24p (25p), 30p) and Full 120fps high-speed shooting (120p) at up to 100 Mbps bitrate to capture detailed movies with minimal compression noise.
Sandhills Robotics will build a robotic solution that best fits your needs. Unmanned or remotely controlled vehicles are a platform to carry a payload. In most cases this is a camera or sensor package. Once our salesmen have a good idea of the data you require, Sandhills will customize a solution that best fits your needs with no extraneous add-ons to “pad the bill” or complicated features you will never need or use. We produce an industrial grade product with a North Carolina based technical support team. This alleviates the frustrations surrounding foreign based technical support architectures and international shipping turn-around times. Our Veteran owned business and staff has the knowhow and expert level training to deliver a ruggedized product that delivers when it counts most.
Weihai Robotics Orca A ROV
Maximum depth of 300m and a maximum speed of 3 knots
Strong underwater pushing force, forward pushing force can reach 20kg
15kg of extra mounting buoyancy to mount all kinds of underwater devices
Camera has an extended depth of field, works in low illumination with 700tvl.
Groundstation has a 19 inch LCD monitor with embedded host computer control
This robot has a singular purpose; Underwater Dam inspections
Please as our salesmen if you wish to use it for a different purpose and we will modify it to suit your needs
Camera and sensor packages
Three base models are used for aerial payloads
Our smallest frame (550mm) typically carries a GoPro Hero 4 Black Edition camera on a stabilized 2 or 3 axis gimbal.
Record at up to 4K resolution at 30 frames per second. It can also capture 1080p at 120fps
Can also take 12-megapixel photos, and time-lapse photos at the same time as shooting video at 1,440p, 1,080p, and 720p.
Most often used for low cost photogrammetry or large format orthomosiacs
Transend Robotics ARTI 3 platform
Adheres to the K.I.S. principle, does mechanically what other platforms do electronically; translates to lower failure rate and less downtime
Climbs over stairs and obstacles with ease
Slotted T-rail mounting system makes adding and removing sensor/camera payloads easy
Sandhills can custom fit the same sensor and software packages found
above plus many more
*6 axis manipulatable arms
*Precise GPS locater (Ground Survey)
*Complete Autonomy; pre-planned GPS waypoint travel
* Emergency response package (Voice/Tone loudspeaker and Flashing Strobes)
*3D mapping... and more
Each model is identified by size as measured from motor to motor diagonally.
Air frames are constructed with 3K woven carbon fiber for strength and lightweight.
Motor and propeller size is chosen based on weight of payload and optimized for maximum flight time
Our flight controller is based on a Pixhawk 2.1 that is tuned and optimized for your airframe and requirements
TFM and Associates Inc.
All of our airframes can be equipped with thermal capabilities, we recommend the FLIR Vue™ Pro
FLIR Vue Pro is more than a thermal camera, it is a thermal measurement instrument and data recorder
Vue Pro records 8-bit digital video in MJPEG or H.264 formats and 14-bit still imagery to a removable micro-SD card
Vue Pro’s Accessory Port connection gives you access to MAVLink commands and camera controls over PWM commands; so you can select color palettes, start and stop recording, or trigger the camera's e-zoom in-flight from your radio controller.
Vue Pro comes with a built-in, low-power Bluetooth module, so you can easily configure your camera with our custom iOS or Android apps before you take off.
Our 680 airframe is best suited for larger point and shoot sized cameras or custom sensor packages like the Velodyne Puck Lidar or Micasense Red Edge Multispectral sensors.
Velodyne- LiDAR: Real-time, 360°, 3D distance and calibrated reflectivity measurements
Sony DSC-HX90V - 30X zoom equivalent to 24-720mm, optical image stabilization, and an 18.2MP BSI CMOS sensor
MicaSense RedEdge M - five bands—blue, green, red, red edge, and near-infrared, 8 cm per pixel (per band) at 120 m (~400 ft) AGL Ground Sample Distance
