  • The drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV), an aircraft that can fly without a 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 besides 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.

  • DroneRover can detect metallic and non-metallic objects.

  • Operating with a DroneRover 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 the first test somewhere on an open field. So you get familiar with operating drones before going searching for the first time.

  • The depth detection of the DroneRover varies, much more than for the handheld detector. There are many factors to consider when talking about detection depth, like:


    - The detection depth depends on the height above the ground that drone is operated (the higher the drone flies the lower detection depth)

    - The 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 30m or 100ft for big and massive objects.

  • 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 the bigger area it can be covered in one scan.

    If you are using a higher resolution of scanning the smaller area can be covered than 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.

  • The maximum drone flying range is 7km.

    The speed of scanning also affects scanning area size.

    If you are scanning at a lower speed you will not cover as big an area as if you would scan an area at a higher speed. The speed is also a factor in scanning time if you scan faster less time it will take to cover the area. So approximate maximum range of the drone detector is 7km in distance if operated more than 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 scanning on open areas.

  • Yes, with a 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.

  • For best user experience we provide smartphone app that has all features you need, but if you would like to further process data on the computer you can import it to popular 3D scientific data mapping and analysis softwares

  • 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 a drone during scanning, never use them in places where there are other people, also make sure that you stay away from the drone flying path while scanning is in progress.

  • Yes, the drone detector has 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.

  • The drone detector can be used on many surfaces and places. Its recommended to use it on open areas without too many objects. Because scanning over objects reduces the sensitivity of the drone. It can be used on open fields of any sort, over smaller bunches, over rivers and lakes, in hills and mountains.

  • A 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 use imaginary technologies that don’t exist and were never proven by science.


    More about long-range detectors can be found here:

  • Closer the drone flies to the ground, higher sensitivity.

    In the auto mode drone flies 2 meters above the terrain, while in manual mode user can fly as close to the ground as possible.

  • The cave presents an interesting challenge due to the absence of a GPS signal, making it difficult to determine the drone's precise location for automated scanning. However, the positive aspect is that you have the option to manually pilot the drone within the cave while observing sensor readings.

  • It depends on which drone you choose, for Phantom 4, battery will work 20-30 minutes and can be simply replaced after the flight.

    Our application has an auto-landing/return function

  • The system offers an impressive scan range of up to seven hundred meters in every direction, with the flexibility to focus on a few meters for more detailed scans.

    When it comes to automatic scanning, the height limit is set at 10 meters, though manual mode provides unrestricted control.

    Please be aware that high voltage lines might influence measurement accuracy.

    For larger, substantial, and ferromagnetic objects, detection can extend to depths of 10 meters or beyond. Consider the exciting possibility of identifying significant items like a shipwreck while conducting flights over the sea.

  • Indeed, having access to mobile internet will be essential for downloading maps. This will enable you to accurately track the drone's flight path and facilitate the processing of certain data.
