About Us

We live above the arctic circle in norway

Our vision is to give superpowers to the
drone pilot

With three months of no sunlight, in the arctic tundra during the cold winter, we know the challenges darkness provides to drone pilots flying at night. We have spent countless time prototyping, testing and figuring out how to make the ultimate drone lighting solution for small prosumer and enterprise drones. 

These insights were used to create the world’s brightest Automoving drone light that makes it possible to fly drones in the dark. This solution builds on our patented drone payload platform, which today is engineered for every DJI Mavic 3 and Mavic 2 drone. New Automoving drone lights and other modular payloads will be designed in the years to come, giving smaller drones enhanced capabilities and superpowers to you!

The name Tundra Drone was given because the weather conditions in the Norwegian arctic tundra define what we can do and when we can do it. We believe when we design and test drone solutions that work here, they will work everywhere in the world.

Anti-collision (STROBE) lighting

We designed the Automoving light unit to include powerful built-in anti-collision (strobe) lighting for safe and easy night flying.

Maintain visual line of sight
The powerful built-in anti-collision lighting makes it easier to maintain visual line of sight of your drone. Fly more safely and reduce the risk of drone operations at night.

Become visible to other aircrafts
Two strategically placed anti-collision (strobe) lights provide other aircraft with awareness of your drone´s presence during night.

Designed for high visibility
The green high-intensity anti-collision (strobe) lights, flashing 60 times per minute, are designed to provide high visibility from 3+ statute miles distance, for safer night flying.
