Standard Flight Pack
Quantum Flight Pack
You know Quantum Land Design is the trusted expert in 3D machine control modeling for the earth moving industry. Now you have the opportunity to leverage our experience with your drone data through Quantum's Flight Pack.
Quantum's Flight Pack is a simple, easy to use drone system any contractor can operate. We offer a standard or PPK/RTK drone system depending on your needs. The best part? We don't burden you with any subscrition fees. You only pay for the data you have processed. No more, no less.
Here's a quick video showing what comes in our Flight Pack.
Instead of specialized (read…expensive) drones and ground control targets you utilize the GPS system you already own to measure ground control. Your data will match your machine control model and project plans every time.
Here is how it works:
Use your GPS rover to place a few ground control targets on the site.
Fly your drone over the project with automated flight software.
Load your photos and control data to our cloud.
Quantum processes the drone data and runs the volume calcs for you. OR, we can provide you with a 3D surface and contours you can use in your takeoff software (like Carlson Takeoff, AgTek, Trimble Business Center, InSite, AutoDesk, Bentley, etc…).
That is all there is to it. No new software or web portals to learn. Just real time data you can use in your current workflow. You pay per job without big monthly or annual fees. Click here for more detail regarding our keep-it-simple methodology.
We bill per project and can quote regular jobs. You always know what the cost is upfront and, again, we do not bill you regardless of whether or not you send us drone data.
Training is easy, too. We offer onsite training or you can utilize our free resources on YouTube suplemented with a couple phone calls to get you flying.

Quantum Flight Pack - Standard
This is the the drone solution we recommend to most of our contractors. It includes the DJI Mavic 3E, RC Pro remote with built in screen, three drone batteries, contractor grade case, 8 ground control targets, one year of DJI Enterprise Care and all of the little things you need to be successful right out of the box. The remote and drone are full updated and test flown. We even process a data-set from each kit to verify it is 100% ready to go.
The RC Pro remote has DJI Pilot 2 software installed. Pilot 2 is free, easy to use and has all the features you need to fly your construction sites. Check out this YouTube video to learn how to plan a fully automated flight in the new Pilot 2 software (it's similar to Ground Station Pro). After you have planned a few it only takes a couple minutes to set up a new flight plan.
With both of our drone kits, you will use your GPS rover to measure ground control and check shots. All we need to generate your 3D surface are the drone photos and control data. By measuring control with the GPS rover you already have set up for machine control we can be certain that your drone data will match up with your takeoff, machine control model and any GPS topo work you have done.
Quantum Flight Pack - PPK/RTK
This is the the drone solution we recommend to our power users. It includes the DJI Mavic 3E, RC Pro remote with built in screen, RTK GPS antenna, three drone batteries, contractor grade case, 8 ground control targets, one year of DJI Enterprise Care and all of the little things you need to be successful right out of the box The PPK/RTK kits are fully updated and test flown. We even process a data-set from each unit to verify it is 100% up to spec.
By adding the RTK module to the M3E it allows you to use PPK (PPK = Post Processing Kinematic) or RTK (RTK = Real Time Kinematic) GPS processing to improve the accuracy of your photo locations. You will still need to ground control, but may be able to use less and will have more flexibility in where you place the targets.
If you are flying frequently or on projects with difficult site access this can be a significant time saver. Keep in mind that the ONLY way we can be certain your drone data will line up with your machine control and GPS topo data is with ground control and check shots.
With the the RTK module attached, the drone will automaticaly log PPK information during your flight. With those logs and your photos Quantum's pro's can post process the data to tighten up your photo locations. For RTK corrections, you will need to connect to an NTRIP network or local base station during your flight.
Due to the more accurate photo GPS locations, the RTK/PPK system does give you a little more flexibility in the placement of ground control targets. It's nice to have when flying larger projects, too. We use your ground control to work out any minor errors in the RTK/PPK process and perfect alignment to your GPS machine control data. We can help you decide if the Standard or RTK/PPK system is best for your application. Keep in mind, if you started with the standard system you can always add the RTK module later.
Just like the standard kit, all we need to generate your 3D surface are the drone photos and control data.
You will need an FAA Part 107 drone pilot certificate to fly for your business. It's a written test only. Here are four great resources to study before the test:
The ASA Remote Pilot Test Prep Book (this is included in your Quantum Flight Pack)
Tony and Chelsea Northrup's YouTube video. Everyone recommends this video. It's the only study guide many people use.
The FAA Become a Drone Pilot Site
Follow the first-time pilot instructions, unless you already have a pilots certificate.
This link will take you to the Official FAA Part 107 study materials.
xyHt Magazine "How to Get a Drone License". This article will answer most of your questions, even some you did not know you had.
Studying and passing the FAA test might seem overwhelming or time consuming, but it's not that difficult. Most of our contractor clients study over a one or two week period, take the test and pass it on the first try. We have not had one contractor fail to obtain their Part 107 certificate.
