The E386 Mapping Drone

The E386 is one of the leading drones in the world for Agriculture, Surveying, Construction, Mining and Conservation applications.

The E386 has been proven through thousands of hours of flight from hot and humid jungles to freezing mountains above 13,000 feet. It can fly 850 acres in 85 minutes at 3.7cm GSD completely autonomously. The E386 operates according to a pre-planned mission from takeoff the touchdown, or you can use the hand remote control to take over control at any time. The E386 can be flown completely from the ground control station, and does not require any manual control to use.

This package is customizable depending on your application. If you’re not sure what you need, contact us and we’ll walk you through the options and special considerations for your project. Each E386 is flight tested, and a dedicated support engineer is available to help you get set up and flying.

Made for Mapping

The E386 is an autonomous platform made to carry a variety of sensors such as high resolution visible light, multispectral, thermal, and surveillance cameras. Our customized Mission Planner package automatically plans flight lines and overlap based on the sensor and desired ground resolution. For repeat jobs, you can save a mission and retrieve it with a few clicks. Aircraft recovery by parachute can be planned in just a few clicks as well.

The Intellishoot smart image capture system ties the camera in to the autopilot and GPS for precise control. It takes pictures at the planned overlap rate, and saves the GPS coordinate for each image automatically. When the mission is over, it closes the camera hatch just before touch-down to protect the camera lens from dirt and debris.


Mission Planner is an easy to use planning and flight control system. It connects wirelessly to your E386 and allows you to see flight telemetry and change mission parameters in real time.
