Hexacopter | Agri-Drone
The Hexacopter | Agri-drone serves the main purpose of pesticide spraying.
Through Drone crop spraying, human contact with such harmful chemicals is limited. Agri-drones can carry out this task much quicker than vehicles/airplanes.
Drones with RGB sensors and multispectral sensors can precisely identify and treat problematic areas. Professionals say that aerial spraying is five times faster with drones when compared to other methods.
The Hexacopter has a hovering time of 13 minutes with a load. Has ATT, Spray work, and GPS flight modes.
The Hexacopter has a water tank of 10 liters, which completes the process of pesticide spraying in an area of 2 acres, has a working temperature of 0 to 50 degrees Celsius.
The drone has an inbuilt Lipo battery of 16000 MAH and 6 inbuilt motors of 180KV power each. The height at which the Hexacopter does the drone spraying is 1.2 meters to 4 meters.

FAQs on Agri Drones
AgriDrone is an autonomous system, in other words, the drone flies itself according to a mission that is pre-planned. The only flying you will have to do is to take off, which involves raising the throttle till the drone has lifted off. Thereafter you simply press a button on the radio to enable autonomous mode, from there on the drone flies the mission by itself and then returns to its home position and lands.
Farmers are using drones to spray pesticides more purposefully over smaller areas, as drones can spray with higher accuracy than most boom sprayers, tractors or piloted aircraft.
Quick and precise generation of multispectral images is possible, which means the drones create a graphical display that shows the health of the crops. Drones can also assess the ground and create a 3D map of the field so that farmers are more informed when planning seed-planting patterns.
An agricultural drone is an unmanned aerial vehicle used to help optimize agriculture operations, increase crop production, and monitor crop growth. Sensors and digital imaging capabilities can give farmers a richer picture of their fields
The use of drones in the agriculture industry is steadily growing as part of an effective approach to sustainable agricultural management that allows agronomists, agricultural engineers, and farmers to help streamline their operations, using robust data analytics to gain effective insights into their crops.
