Jesus! That is some clever stuff! The bloody size of it though :scream: couldn’t just pop it in the golf and head to the field. :face_with_raised_eyebrow: 3D mapping sounds interesting too. :ok_hand:

Agricultural “Spraying”, though? I mean … how much coverage can be applied by the limited payload of a drone? :man_shrugging:

Maybe I’m a not very nice person but my immediate thoughts revolved around a list of people and places I’d like to spray - with something other than agrichemicals :slight_smile:

Not looked into it but on the same sort of line and on a more positive note :grimacing: do they do these for tackling fire like those in Australia :thinking:

Some lovely incompatible stats.

16 litre payload
4.8 litre/minute (up to)
10 hectares/hour … in Christ knows how many flights.

Did it say flight time per battery? :thinking:

Not sure 16 litres would put out the average Aussie bbq.

LOL! It might fan the flames into a bigger disaster, too! :scream:

Controls up to 5 aircraft from one remote! :scream: maybe that won’t take so long to do a field of crops

You’ll need a whole team of flunkies to keep them all filled up!

Spray time (down to) 3.5 minutes, so you have to refill 5 every 3.5 minutes … plus out and back time.

Or they all come back at the same time and nothing is being sprayed whilst all five are refilled. LOL.

I might be willing to pay to watch this circus. :ok_hand:

Glad I wasn’t the only one scratching my head on those numbers…

Also, baffled by the overly-dramatic music choice for what is, essentially, an impressive, flying watering can :wink:

It would be cheaper to get your rotary license and buy a Robinson!

Keeping it steady in the greenhouse is going to be the challenge :wink:

That thing would blow all the glass out with the downwash!

OK - I sussed it!!!

This is designed for keeping the greenfly off the poppy plants …. up in the hills of Columbia, and the like! … where tractor spraying isn’t possible.

That’s the only agriculture with the funds!

And doubles-up as a delivery vehicle for getting the end product over Trump’s wall. :wink:
