Fife Ness Hexacopter XL on the ground

Supplied in kit form by HiSystems GmbH the HexakopterXL is a gyro-stabilised, GPS enabled semi-autonomous radio-controlled aircraft. The multi-rotor, counter-rotating configuration gives great stability and fine control in all axes. The machine is used as a “skyhook” to place a camera in a desired position, and can therefore enable photography of archaeological sites that would otherwise require heavy, bulky and expensive equipment – or a full-size aircraft – to achieve.
