This is an excellent fit for our UAV Offerings.

The CF5 is a Carbon Fiber sUAS as designed by our team. It utilizes Commercial Off the Shelf sUAS Components and has electronic flight controls from DJI & 3D Robotics for Flight Control Systems.

We offer a very unique FPV CF5 Drone. This CF5 is based on Carbon Fiber and 3D Printed Composite Body Technologies. It offers many unique performance enhancement features and includes 3D Robotics 3DR PixHawk Flight Controller or DJI NAZA Flight Controller. This allows us to design the Mission Specific drones that are clients are looking for.

Additionally, we are currently authorized to fly Commercial-off-the-Shelf technologies such as the DJI Phantom and S1000. We are adding other platforms to our petition, including some military grade platforms. With the variety, we are confident that we’ll be able to meet a broad range of mission requirements.

Drone Fleet wants to be the first Hardware Agnostic Fleet Maintenance Drone Vendor to market. We are equipped to manage client Fleets of Drones starting with their initial technology acquisition. Once a firm’s business strategy is in place, we review requirements and help clients to determine the ideal technology platform to move forward with.  We act as a trusted advisor on the proper selection of hardware platforms.

Drone Fleet has relationships with several of the main hardware manufacturers and can offer the best selection of products for an organization. Additionally, our team has the capabilities to modify OEM technology to meet client payload requirements.

We offer UAV Rentals for specific missions. We also have a Pay-As-You-Go option, which operationalizes the expenses of a UAV implementation. We can provide a complete turn-key support model along with the Pay-As-You-Go option.

Q. How many drone pilots do you envision hiring in 2015?

We are looking for potential Independent Pilots, Sales Contractors & Partners interested in flying and selling our Mission Specific Hardware. We hope to hire 20 to 30 Pilots this year.
