Each battery have a test button and LEDs to indicate the current charge level and accessible ports for easy charging too. The Triumph-F1 from JAVAD comes with two micro-SD slots for recording images, a SIM card slot, Wi-Fi and a USB connector for uploading flight plans and downloading collected images. It features indicators devoted to satellite tracking, communications, flight status and gyro. There are four angled documentation cameras in the Triumph-F1 and a downward high-precision camera for photogrammetry.
