FAQ

Who the heck are you guys?
BirdsEyeView Aerobotics is a startup company based in Andover, New Hampshire, founded by an aerospace engineer from North Carolina. Live Free or Die, y’all! Our focus is on the emerging commercial aerobotics market, and we pride ourselves on a commitment to refreshing innovation, high quality product offerings, and a relentless push-the-envelope mentality. 

What the heck is an aerobot?
An aerobot is a flying robot for everyday people. Some call them “drones.” We don’t as a rule.

What battery should I use?
The FireFLY6 PRO comes equipped with two Turnigy Multistar High Capacity 6S 5200mAh LiPo batteries. You have the option to upgrade your FireFLY6 PRO to accommodate our custom LiHV batteries for improved flight times. Additional battery sets can be purchased at these links: Upgraded LiHV and Standard LiPo.
For our legacy FireFLY6 DIY products, we recommend the Turnigy Multistar High Capacity 3S 5200mAh battery in 142x49x22mm form factor (important!).

What map stitching software do you recommend?
The short answer is that we're agnostic on this, and so is the FireFLY6 PRO by extension. When paired with a mapping payload, the FireFLY6 PRO system produces geo-referenced imagery that can be fed into the post-processing solution of your choice, without preference to cloud or local processing options. We offer Pix4D products as optional add-ons to the FireFLY6 PRO, and we'll do everything we can to support your use of them should you choose to purchase through us.

What happened to your DIY products?
All good things must come to an end, and when the market speaks we listen! With its powerful coverage capabilities, flexibility, and industry-leading VTOL, the FireFLY6 PRO quickly became our most popular product, so we've chosen to focus our efforts on that product line going forward. We'll continue to support our legacy DIY customers requiring technical support or spare parts for a limited time and while supplies last.
