The eBee GEO makes its first UK landing…in Peterborough!

17 May 2021

Peterborough based KOREC customer, Sky Revolutions, is a company that certainly knows its way around the aerial mapping sector and as one of the very earliest UK surveying businesses to realise the benefits of drone surveying, it also has an extensive knowledge of the technology involved.

That’s why we are delighted to announce that it has become the first company in the UK to take delivery of senseFly’s newly released fixed wing drone, the eBee GEO.

Designed to deliver senseFly’s superior build quality and extensive functionality at a fraction of the price of similar drones, the eBee GEO is all about user ROI and is especially suitable for the many varied projects that Sky Revolutions undertake.

For company Director, Ben Gorham, the eBee GEO is a perfect choice for Sky Revolutions which has seen an upsurge in demand for aerial survey work following the restrictions imposed by COVID.

Ben rates the eBee GEO for four particular reasons:

  • The RTK option allows the Sky Revolutions team to achieve the 2.5cm accuracy demanded by many of their projects
  • With a battery life of 45 minutes, the eBee GEO is a producitive choice for the increasing number of larger jobs the company is working on
  • The S.O.D.A. camera provides impressive accuracy at 400ft
  • Some of Sky Revolutions’ jobs, such as a recent coastal survey in Suffolk, involve several miles of walking. The eBee GEO has a take-off weight of just 1.3kg and is easy to transport in a backback.

Ben concludes, “There’s no doubt that the eBee GEO makes good sense for us financially and with its impressive accuracy it is the perfect addition to our fixed wing offering. KOREC’s been great at meeting our requirements and understands that we are a company valued by our customers for our specialist surveying skills and consequently have high expectations of every investment we make.”

Sky Revolutions has just successfully completed a first mission with the eBee GEO carrying out a coastal survey on behalf of Suffolk County Council.
