Dragonfish Series

Command The Future

Smart. Simple. Efficient.

The Dragonfish's unique tilt-rotor design simplifies operation while maximizing performance and efficiency. With no complicated moving parts, the Dragonfish is modular, waterproof, smart, and reliable. The Dragonfish is mission ready right out of the box and includes powerful AI tracking capabilities and a multitude of modular payload options. An endurance of up to 158 minutes (including payload) further augments the Dragonfish's robust mission capabilities and pushes it significantly ahead of the competition.

One-Click Takeoff / Landing

ADS-B Receiver

Millimeter-wave radar is built into the nose of Dragonfish, which can detect obstacles up to 200 meters away. The aircraft automatically adjusts its height and speed based on the collected flight data, giving Dragonfish excellent obstacle avoidance performance.

RTK Accuracy

Map with confidence with the Dragonfish's two RTK (Real-Time Kinetic) modules, which enable the aircraft to provide centimeter-accurate location data when paired with a GNSS base station. The dual units back up each other's data for additional peace of mind, while also improving image metadata quality and increasing flight precision and safety.

Interchangeable Payload System

Tackle any operation with a variety of payload options that can be tool-lessly swapped to suit mission needs. Dragonfish payloads are designed to be interchangeable between aircraft classes to maximize the value and enhance the mission capability of the system.

Max. Flight Time Graph for Dragonfish Series with Payload

The Dragonfish Pro with L50T payload can achieve 50x optical zoom and 240x hybrid zoom. Details are clearly visible even when observing targets 2 km away. Operators do not need to go to the site, which not only improves work efficiency, but also ensures the safety of personnel and flight equipment. Efficiently empower energy inspection, emergency rescue, public security and other industry applications.

One Device. Any Mission.

Incredibly powerful yet simple to use, Autel Voyager is the one-stop solution for every mission. Designed specifically for the Dragonfish, the software provides advanced mission planning, intelligent tracking, flight history tracking, and other autonomous features.

Mission Planning

Waypoint missions, polygon missions, and rectangular missions can be planned offsite prior to mission and started with a single click to begin autonomous flight. The pilot can regain control at any time during the mission for emergency maneuvers or custom flight path planning.

Tap to Fly

Select a target on the camera and the Dragonfish will automatically fly to the selected location and orbit the subject.

Mission Management

Monitor past missions and assign flights.

Quick Mission

Set points of interest on the flight map during any part of the mission and the Dragonfish automatically will deviate from its original path plan to pursue the pilot's needs.

Compact And Portable

With its innovative quick-release design and a speedy self-check, the Dragonfish can be in the air and mission ready within 5 minutes.

The Dragonfish can be easily disassembled by a single person and fits into the trunk of any average-sized car. The entire system can be assembled without tools and ready to fly in less than 5 minutes.

The whole system self checks in 5 seconds and is ready to fly in 5 minutes.

Quick-release blade design makes assembly simple and convenient.
