Jesus! That is some clever stuff! The bloody size of it though couldn’t just pop it in the golf and head to the field. 3D mapping sounds interesting too.
Agricultural “Spraying”, though? I mean … how much coverage can be applied by the limited payload of a drone?
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
Not looked into it but on the same sort of line and on a more positive note do they do these for tackling fire like those in Australia
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?
Not sure 16 litres would put out the average Aussie bbq.
LOL! It might fan the flames into a bigger disaster, too!
Controls up to 5 aircraft from one remote! 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.
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
Flight times per battery:
It can fly for 10 minutes at max weight load.
20 min battery charge time
Each extra battery cost $1150
That’ll piss the neighbours off when you water the petunias!
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
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.
They use them to tackle malaria too, pretty cool stuff
