    I use it for UAV VTOL; and the distance accuracy is accurate and wonderful. It’s small and light; so it’s very easy to handle.

    We used the SF20/C with a servo motor to detect gratings 2 meters above the ground. The precision is excellent. Discrimination too. Simple to use and implement. We highly recommend this product.

    We use the sensor to support pilots during the flare out just before touch on the runway. Via a Wifi Access point the fast measurements by the sensor are transmitted to our SmartFlare app.
