October 2013, we attended InterGeo held in Essen, Germany and after the event, we took our Lidar system to Switzerland for some UAV test flights. We mounted the Lidar system on the Dragon 35 UAV helicopter produced by SwissDrones and did a series of flying. Resultant data was spectacular, laser point cloud was more than 100pts/m2 and image ground resolution was 5cm. We found the Dragon 35 to be a stable and robust platform with little vibration ! Look for more news coming soon regarding this UAV !
