  • Custom setting for maximum speed, maximum height, RPV mode, landing procedure, etc
  • Absolute and relative positioning flight mode.

Top quality CNC manufactured parts


Durabilty and reliability have been the key driver during Venture design and developement. Venture UAV family uses only top quality manufactured parts, specifically designed by Pro S3. All parts are made to tolerance in order to guarantee great modularity and easy replacement in case of damage.

Advanced capabilities and diagnostic

DGPS and RTK gps option

Venture Surveyor con be equipped with dual frequency  GPS receiver allowing differential GPS or RTK mode operation.

Full flight logging capabilities

Venture UAV family can be equipped with a special flight logger that keeps track of all operation. Thanks to this feature Pro S3 is capable of granting regular maintenance and plan inspections.

Advanced self diagnostic and temperature compensation

Venture Surveyor autopilot advanced vibration detection algorithms prevents flying when rotating parts could be potentially damaged causing problems during flight. Venture Surveyor autopilot is fully temperature compensated in a wide range of temperature.


Transport and packing capabilities


Venture UAV family has been designed to optimize operation and reduce readiness time for everyday activities. Thanks to its foldable arms, once folded the UAV can be stored in a very small but rugged case.

(Performances refers to standard ISA atmosphere condition: pressure 1013.25 hPa, temperature 15°C, humidity 0%)

  • Cruising speed (typ.): 8 m/s – 15.5 kts
  • Rate of climb: 3.5 m/s – 650 ft/min
  • Max. operating altitude above sea level: 3500 m
  • Max wind for take off and landing: 20 Km/h – 11 kts
  • Operating temperature range: -20°C / + 50°C
  • Storage temperature range: -20°C / + 50°C
  • Duration max.: 25 mins


Duration is influenced by flight profile, weather conditions wind, battery state of charge and efficiency. Standard duration is measured with standard flight, automatic take off, climb to 10 m, hover flight, descend and landing
