The BLK2FLY is the easiest and fastest way to scan indoor and outdoor areas that require a UAV. With powerful autonomous technology, the BLK2FLY is easy to use with simplified operation. Unfold the scanner, set it on the ground or floor, fire up your iPad, turn on the BLK2FLY with the push of one button, and you’re ready for takeoff. It is fully compatible with the Leica Geosystems Cyclone suite of Reality Capture software as well as Reality Cloud Studio, and offers unprecedented scanning agility to reality capture users in industries worldwide.
For a detailed product overview, please visit the Leica BLK2FLY product page.
With a 5-camera vision system and a dual-axis LiDAR scanner that captures 420,000 measurement points per second, the BLK2FLY is ready to take on any project. Fully integrated sensors – radar, LiDAR, cameras, and GNSS – enable advanced obstacle avoidance and heightened spatial awareness to ensure the BLK2FLY always flies safely and takes the most optimal flight path to capture data evenly and quickly. Simply transfer data with USB-C or WLAN connectivity.
Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS (BLK Edition) Subscription
Leica Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS (BLK Edition) is a simplified version of Leica Geosystems Cyclone REGISTER 360 PLUS that features an intuitive UI, guided workflows and an easy process for sharing data downstream with more advanced tools like JetStream and TruView.
