The INF Scanlift is a professional heavy lift UAS multirotor platform that has been developed as an efficient way to carry a wide range of sensors including the LiDAR USA Imaging range. With the hybrid addon, 120 minute workable flight time is possible (payload dependent). The Scanlift has been developed and tested in some of the harshest environments in the world and is both rugged and incredibly reliable. 

The design of the Scanlift is both rugged, and incredibly efficient, providing an extremely capable simple system that will work in a variety of environments, month after month.

The ScanLift 800 offers the same key features as the DJI Government Edition UAS:

  • No Data Transmission – The only way data is transmitted is if the user deliberately sends it. No component of the ScanLift will ever transfer data by any means to anyone, including third parties and Innoflight.
  • No Automatic Updates – You have full control on when firmware updates are applied to your fleet. You will never be denied flight capabilities due to outdated firmware. Feel free to test the update when it is convenient for you.
  • Restricted Hardware Pairing – Each ScanLift is specifically linked with its Ground Control Station(s). The GCS of one ScanLift may not be used on a different ScanLift by accident or even on purpose. By design, the Galaxy prevents the use of unauthorized third-party devices.


Your field teams should be able to focus more on getting good data and less on aircraft operations. Pilots should not be required to be mechanical or aviation experts to operate an aircraft safely.

Operated via our long range 3-axis Joystick configured 900/868mhz Ground Control Station or a more conventional style RC 2.4ghz system, the platform is simple to control to our Jupiter+ autopilot system.

Experienced remote pilots often understand all aircraft operations within one hour.

  • Simple ground control station
  • Autonomous take off & landing capability
  • Straightforward pre-flight and post-flight checklists
  • Waypoint missions
  • MAVlink compatibility for mission planning software


Nearing the end of it’s testing phase, the hybrid unit is proving an exceptional upgrade to the Scanlift 800. The hybrid unit extends the flight-time to an exeptional 120 minutes (payload dependent) duration with full battery redundancy. The INF hybrid system makes the Scanlift a workhorse for those large jobs, removing the need to land multiple times per flight and adding another layer of safety.

The hybrid system can be added or removed when required and retrofitted as an option for all existing customers.

A ground control station (GCS PRO) is one of our most popular solutions used to operate the ScanLift, this is an intuitive control system with built in tablet and long-range communication/video link for simple and safe operation. The GCS and ScanLift Radio modem (RF Link) is designed for long range operation and is FCC approved to be compliant with FAA standards. (FCC ID: NS913P900).

10.1 inch HD and high-brightness touch screen display, integrating data link, video link, radio controller and PC system all in one. Many functions are achieved in the GCS Pro, such as Scanlift control, gimbal control, real-time flight status feedback, data and video transmission, route planning, etc. The industrial-grade computer and military-grade transmission links not only ensure the security and stability of the drones, but also are simple to operate and easy to carry. 

The GCS PRO has a built-in 3S 10200mAh Lipo battery which can provide 4 hour operation time with full capacity. An external 12V battery is also available. 



The INF ScanLift features an optional SKYCAT ballistic recovery parachute in the event of a flight condition outside the set parameters the parachute will automatically deploy. Skycat have a large eject distance and have Larger parachutes — The best weight/performance ratio of all parachute recovery system we have tested and perfectly suited to the ScanLift.



The Scanlift is easily dissasembled into a custom carry case that is both sturdy and protects the craft and GCS during transportation.
