A picture may be worth a thousand words, but a customer’s opinion of a product counts for more than any amount of pictures or technical specifications. Here’s what Microdrones users are saying.

Chad Hicks, Imaging Solutions Team Lead, NEI GPS


“We’re excited about the many benefits these UAVs can offer our customers. The aircraft have long flight times and the systems are very accurate and capable.”

Mike Minick, Vice President, Martin Instrument


“Microdrones UAS can help companies improve the way they perform jobs and add new services to the scope of work they can provide.
Our clients’ customers are asking for UAV services and an mdMapper package is a great way to get started. Microdrones UAS offer long flight times, superb stability, flexibility in the field, resistance to harsh weather and environmental conditions, and they are easy to learn and operate.”

Mike Minick, Vice President, Martin Instrument

“Since our (mdAcademy) training, we’ve flown multiple missions and demos for customers. These systems have been very positively received. We demonstrated them for a construction company and they came back and told us the deliverables were ten times better than they achieved with a competitor’s product.The mdMapper1000 package offers considerably higher value than our customers are used to seeing for a commercial-grade, multi-rotor UAS.”

Steve Richter, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Frontier Precision

“Microdrones has an excellent product line. We’ve investigated multiple brands and feel this is the best option on the market for our customers. Microdrones quadcopters are easy to control, highly maneuverable, can fly for a long time, and are very robust and weather-resistant. They’re not going to be stopped by environmental challenges.”

Carlos Escudero, General Manager, GEOCOM

“We’re excited to provide our customers with such exceptional UAS. These are survey-grade systems and when you look at them, the engineering and quality are obvious. This technology provides real value and will help our customers perform jobs more safely, efficiently, and cost-effectively.
When we saw the Trimble announcement in October, we immediately reached out to Microdrones. After speaking with them we were so impressed by their mdMapper systems, knowledge, and willingness to help, we put in a purchase order the next day.”

Brian Holley, General Manager, SITECH South

Matt Rosenbalm, UAS / Advanced Technology Specialist, SITECH South


“For our construction customers, we feel a quadcopter offers the highest value and most flexibility. You need enough control to be able to stop at the boundaries of the project site so your aircraft doesn’t fly over other structures, land, and people. Microdrones systems are great for that – and they also have long flight times, excellent stability, great resilience in bad weather, and they’re very efficient.
I’ve flown many job sites so far with the md4-1000 and each flight has been a great experience. Flight planning and implementation are easy. Everyone has been impressed and very pleased with the results.”

Joe Hutton
Director of Airborne Products
Applanix Corporation


“For more than 10 years Microdrones has set the standard for producing professional UAV solutions with outstanding performance and reliability. The combination of the Applanix Direct Georeferencing technology with their platforms has resulted in highly efficient and accurate mapping and surveying solutions that are second to none. They are truly setting the bar for professional UAV solutions.”

Joe Hutton, Director of Airborne Products of the Applanix Corporation, is pleased to see Applanix Direct Georeferencing technology integrated with reliable, high performance unmanned aerial vehicles for commercial surveying applications.

Jason Pierce, CEO of AVSAN


“The fact that we were often operating at 3800 m is an additional challenge here in Chile. Our fleet of md4-1000 are a very helpful tools; especially with high elevation 3-blade props installed.”

Jason Pierce, CEO of AVSAN, Chile, benefitted from the many technical advantages microdrones products offer during a mining mission.

Victor Pinto Taylor, Technical Manager of AVSAN


“Every day we are showing the world what the microdrone md4-1000 can do in expert hands. My hats off for the guys at microdrones for building such a masterful machine!”

Victor Pinto Taylor, Technical Manager of AVSAN, Chile, was once more impressed by the possibilities microdrones can offer to reduce risks and thus save real lives during exceptional missions.

Robert Rink from the DLRG Horneburg (German Lifeguard Association)


“The DLRG (German Lifeguard Association) Horneburg was immediately convinced by the RESTUBE product and highly promising operations with a microdrone UAV.”

Robert Rink from the DLRG Horneburg has been specially trained and certified in UAV control by microdrones. With regard to project cooperation with microdrones and RESTUBE GmbH, he is convinced that this type of lifesaving in the water will play an important role in the future.

Christopher Fuhrhop, Founder & CEO RESTUBE


“The DLRG, microdrones and RESTUBE are driven by the same thing: with our knowledge in cooperation, we can bring even more safety to people in and on the water.”

Christopher Fuhrhop, founder & CEO of RESTUBE, on the future-oriented project cooperation between DLRG Horneburg, microdrones and RESTUBE GmbH. Here, innovative, automatically inflatable rescue buoys are flown by the UAV to the person in distress in the water and dropped directly over them.

Dr. Dalibor Jerinic Head of Innovations – Business Unit Industrial Service, TÜV NORD GROUP


“The md4-1000 is the most productive multicopter system for inspection of wind turbines that we have used so far. Especially the long flight time makes this micro-drone a very effective tool for our areas of application.”

Dr. Dalibor Jerinic from the TÜV NORD GROUP, commenting the use of a md4-1000 for inspecting a wind turbine near Hamburg, Germany.

Erich Hrdina, pharmacist on Juist island


“We Are Excited About the Possibilities”

Erich Hrdina, pharmacist on the North Sea island of Juist, on the advantages of the “parcelcopter,” which enables deliveries of medication at night, at low tide and strong winds.

Haris Balta, research engineer at the Belgian Royal Military Academy

“So many local officials and end-users have acknowledged the helpfulness of the missions to date (which were carried out right after the flooding) that they have asked us to support the UN’s new missions as well.”

Haris Balta, on the European development projects ICARUS and TIRAMISU, which provide support for the search for survivors and land mines in flood areas in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Urs Meier, former FIFA referee


“I Saw it Myself… The Record Flight of microdrone md4-1000. Incredible Endurance!”

Urs Meier, on the record setting indoor flight of an md4-1000, observed by him with Swiss precision and impartiality.
