dD Hex 17 – Versatile medium sized aerial system

20km range and up to 45min autonomy autopilot hexacopter.

Our dD Hex 17 is our latest iteration of droneDyne UAVs. Its high versatility makes it the best platform for almost any application.


A wide variety of cameras can be carried using the dD Hex 17 from a small GoPro to a DSLR mounted on a Gremsy T3 3 axis gimbal with digital video transmission on the ground (i.e. Connex mini). We offer various ways of controlling the camera (i.e. Seagull UAV modules)  from the ground either using the main remote control, a dedicated one or even fully autonomously through mission planning.

Photogrammetry and LIDAR
The dD Hex 17 can carry specialized cameras such ad the Phase one iXM 100 mega pixel camera or even a LIDAR such as the Lidaretto.

Survey missions
Thanks to ardupilot, it is easy to plan survey missions with automatic camera control

Industrial inspection
Specialized tools can be mounted such as MiniRAE 3000 gaz detectors.

Surveillance camera with artificial intelligence and thermal cameras can be mounted such as the FLIR Duo Pro R or Aerialtronics Pensar.

Carrying payload
It is possible to manually or automatically drop items during autonomous missions using a hook managed by the autopilot.

Follow me
Ardupilot offers many features such as automatic follow-me mode from a smartphone. The drone can even be controlled from take off to landing using nothing but a smartphone or a tablet.
