The Most Compact Survey-Grade Drone LiDAR Surveying Equipment on the Market: EasyOneLiDARUHR+
SMALLER, SAFER AND EASY TO USE
This is our best LiDAR drone surveying equipment ever. Built upon our 4th-gen drone technology, all EasyOne systems are more compact, more optimized, lighter, safer and more efficient. This system delivers integration unmatched in the drone surveying industry, making it easier than ever for you to plan, fly, collect, process and visualize your geospatial data projects.
EasyOne features a significantly smaller operational form factor with the same payload capacity of the md4-1000 platform. In addition to a smaller operational form factor, the EasyOne packs down even smaller, fitting the drone, remote, charger, two batteries and the payload into a protective storage case that’s small and light enough to bring anywhere.
Pictured left: Gone are the days of needing a larger vehicle to transport your drone surveying equipment. The EasyOne drone packs down into a protective case that is 31.69” x 15.94” x 15.75” (805 mm x 405 mm x 400 mm)
EasyOne Is All in One.
The improved controller is completely integrated with mdCockpit. No more connecting a tablet to your remote!
NEW! First person view in flight video display
mdCockpit is integrated directly on your RC screen!
EasyOne features an entirely new controller design that provides an enhanced user interface and powerful safety features, such as Real Time Terrain Follow.
Combined device and integrated remote control- the RC and display are one integrated control unit.
FPV available directly on the remote

High level command of the drone without using the sticks on the remote
LESS IS MORE: The new EasyOne drone platform is smaller than competitive drones able to carry survey grade LiDAR equipment. It's easy to pack in a small vehicle, easy to carry in the field and easy to use on every project.
This is a new beginning for the Microdrones aircraft platform. It fits in a case that’s less than a foot and a half wide. The mdCockpit mission planning screen is fully integrated into the RC. All sensitive onboard electronics are designed, manufactured and assembled in the USA and Germany. All this, yet it's just as powerful as our legacy drone platform.
WHAT IS REAL TIME TERRAIN FOLLOW?
Real-time terrain follow uses the LiDAR payload to follow the terrain in real time.
During the flight, the LiDAR payload evaluates the terrain in real time below the UAV and reports the ground distance to the UAV.
The UAV uses that ground distance value to follow the desired height.
This allows the highest quality of data collection on the market, while adding a level of awareness and safety.
NEW FEATURES FOR BIG SAFETY & PRODUCTIVITY BENEFITS
A NEW BATTERY MANAGEMENT SYSTEM FOR SMART SURVEY AND GEOSPATIAL PROS:
EasyOne includes a new Battery Management System that enables easy charging. Via a single connector, plug it in, and charging starts automatically if required.
Throughout battery maintenance and charging, the battery state is indicated via LEDs on the battery.
The EasyOne checks all the boxes that our customers have asked for when it comes to a versatile and more compact drone surveying system. The LiDAR sensor provides very dense, point-rich data, with highly effective vegetation penetration. The set-up was straightforward, especially with the new payload quick-connect feature. Plus, the size alone makes it much more convenient for transport, especially when you’re working in isolated areas. It even fits under the tonneau cover in the back of my truck.

Available to protect the EasyOne drone and/or your UHR+, UHR or UHR lite payload.
Should you experience a crash, we send you a new system so you can get back to work quickly.
This program fills the gap and keeps your team collecting field data in a timely manner following an incident.
The best part? If you don't have an incident that requires a claim, you get a 50% discount on subsequent years until you have an incident.
THE EASY MAINTENANCE PROGRAM
Proper maintenance is required for safe, effective deployment of any aircraft. Drones are no exception. The backbone of your Microdrones survey equipment is the aircraft.
The Maintenance Program is, overall, a rigorous inspection and maintenance routine designed specifically for your aircraft.
A professionally trained and certified technician will inspect and test the condition of your aircraft as it relates to the airframe, propulsion, electrical systems, sub systems, payload connections and flight.

5 Reasons Why Professionals will Make the mdLiDAR1000UHR OR UHR part of their geomatics workflow:
Drones can Lead to Better Worker Safety
Easily tackle projects in areas that are difficult, dirty or dangerous to access – such as challenging terrain, crumbling structures, high elevations, and areas impacted by natural disasters.
Save Time, Money and Hassle by Deploying a Drone
Collecting data previously required extensive groundwork or very expensive manned aircraft. Using a drone allows quick and affordable data collection; that’s one of the most important benefits for geospatial professionals.
Integrated Drones = Interruption-Free Data Collection
Survey live construction or mining sites without interrupting people, plans or machinery. You’ll no longer have to stop work and equipment to collect the data you need, making you more valuable to your customers.
Technology Thought Leadership and Practical Field Leadership
Customers are curious about UAV surveying technology – so providing it demonstrates that a business is an industry leader at the helm. Faster, more efficient data collection differentiates you from competitors and positions you as a subject matter expert in an emerging technology.
