On 14th June 2021, FlyingBasket’s remotely piloted multicopter FB3, equipped with an automatic cargo hook, transported radio equipment weighing up to 80 kgs across a canyon in Davos Wiesen, Jenisberg, in a pilot mission for a Swiss service provider cablex.

The remotely piloted multicopter FB3, equipped with an automatic cargo hook, transported radio equipment weighing up to 80 kgs across a canyon in Davos Wiesen, Jenisberg. The delivery point was determined next to a mast tower where cablex technicians were to execute an antenna installation. According to the established evaluation criteria, the maneuver granted high level of flexibility to the process, resulting in the continuation of the project in to the next phase, as agreed by both parties.

Martin Müller, Head of Portfolio & Business Steering, cablex –

“FlyingBasket is a drone provider with a lot of experience in transporting loads of up to 100 kg. They already have a number of successful drone operations in various countries and you can tell that they have ambitious professionals at work.”

Telecom infrastructure companies operate in a very competitive environment in Switzerland. Especially in remote areas, where there is a low population density, the associated fixed costs for optimizing the network infrastructure are relatively higher. Hence, through this mission it is proven
that cargo drones can reduce costs and inefficiencies in the transportation systems of ICT infrastructure providers.

Moritz Moroder, CEO, FlyingBasket –

“We appreciate the view and the willingness of cablex to challenge the status quo of existing methods and test an innovative solution that will be utilized in the future as part of their daily activities. And thanks to the prompt and efficient efforts of FOCA, the demonstration could be carried out smoothly in full compliance with the Swiss regulations.”
