FLY SMARTER

The Lancaster 5 is fully autonomous and easy to use. Throw it like a paper airplane to launch and it automatically optimizes its flight plan to collect data in the most efficient way. After completing the mission, it lands itself. With smart flight controls, the drone adjusts to various payloads and unpredictable environmental conditions to get the data you need.
