The eBee Plus is an innovative and upgraded agricultural drone that is designed to function as the successor to the successful eBee fixed-wing drone originally released by senseFly some years ago.

What makes the eBee Plus a significant upgrade is the fact that it features a significantly boosted wingspan of 100 cm as well as an increased flight range of just short of an hour, making it possible for the drone to map out up to 540 acres of land in a single mission. What's more, this agricultural drone is equipped with a camera and sensor mechanism that is capable of capturing images at a resolution of 2.9 cm from a height of 122 meters.

This drone is a great example of the latest flight technologies being leveraged in the agricultural and farming sectors.
