  • How does metal detector drone work?
    The drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), an aircraft that can fly without pilot used for military, police and commercial missions in a variety of applications. A drone treasure detector is a drone that carries an attached treasure detector sensor that is optimized for flight use. This device can scan survey areas 10 times faster than other detectors beside that it can do it completely automatically by itself using autopilot functionality. The drone is controlled by a smartphone application that enables users to mark the scan area on the map. Once the area is selected and confirmed, the drone will start flying over the selected area and the application will collect treasure sensor information from the drone displaying it on the smartphone application map.
  • What can be detected with metal detector drone?
    Drone detectors are made for surveying big areas easier and quicker than by foot. They are meant and are recommended for detecting big objects or artifacts and surveying at archeological sites. Drone treasure detectors can detect same metallic and non-metallic objects as treasure detectors.
  • How to operate metal detector drone work?
    Operating with a drone detector is very easy. Mostly because the drone will do everything for you because it is fully automatic. Make sure that you read the user manual and know everything about basic operations before going on searching expeditions. We also recommend to first test it somewhere on an open field. So you get familiar with operating drone before going searching for the first time.
  • How safe is metal detector drone?
    The drone detector is a fully automated scanner. Its equipped with many motion sensors that allow a drone to automatically avoid obstacles like trees. It's capable of self-adjusting to height, this makes scanning in hills much easier and safer. So as long as it is used with caution drone detectors are safe. Make sure to always observe drone during scanning, never use it in places where there are other people, also make sure that you stay away from drone flying path while scanning is in progress.
  • How deep can metal detector drone detect?
    The depth detection of the drone detector varies, much more than for handheld detector. There are many factors to consider when talking about detection depth, like: Detection depth depends on the height above the ground that drone is operated (higher the drone flies the lower detection depth) Detection depth depends on the ground material. If the ground is made from highly mineralized material the detection depth is lower. If the magnetization level is lower, the detection depth is higher. The maximum approximated depth drone detector can reach is 25m or 80ft for big and massive objects.
  • How big area can you cover with drone?
    The area coverage of the drone detector depends on different factors like the battery, scan resolution, scan accuracy and flying speed. The more battery life the drone has a bigger area it can be covered in one scan. If you are using a higher resolution of scanning the smaller area can be covered then if using a lower resolution, since the drone flying path is longer. Max. scan area that can be done with the drone is around one square kilometer.
  • What is expected Battery life? Can it be replaceable?
    A fully charged battery enables drones to fly for 25 minutes. And the battery is replaceable which means you can use multiple batteries and replace them during your search expedition.
  • What is the maximum drone range?
    The maximum drone flying range is 7km. The speed of scanning also affects scanning area size. If you are scanning at lower speed you will not cover as big area as if you would scan area at higher speed. The speed is also a factor in scanning time if you scan faster less time it will take to cover area. So approximant maximum range of the drone detector is 7km in the distance if operated more then that the drone will lose connection with the head unit. If the battery is fully charged you can cover the maximum area surface of one square kilometer in a single scan. The area coverage also depends on the environment. We recommend to scan on open areas.
  • Does metal detector drone has camera support?
    Yes, the drone detector has a camera support Camera can be used and operated as on a normal drone without the detector sensor. With a camera, you can observe and record scanning. This helps you to better visualize the scanning of the drone, it gives you better control and also improves safety.
  • Can drone treasure detector be used to do a marine survey?
    Yes, with drone treasure detector you can survey open waters like the seas. The drone detector is made for scanning big objects so it is capable to detect shipwrecks on the bottom of the sea.
  • Where can drone treasure detector be used?
    The drone detector can be used on may surfaces and places. Its recommended to use it on open areas without to many objects. Because scanning over objects reduces the sensitivity of the drone. It can be used on open fields of any sorth, over smaller bunches, over rivers and lakes, in hills and mountains.
  • Is metal detector drone a long-range detector?
    Drone treasure detector is called a long-range scanner due to its ability to scan larger areas in a very short time, anyhow it should not be confused with long-range metal detectors that are fake devices that uses imaginary technologies that doesn’t exist and were never proven by science.
