UAV Helicopter Drones In The News

FAA Releases Small UAS Notice of Proposed Rulemaking! - Check out the provisions being proposed in the FAA’s Small UAS NPRM.

FAA Grants UAV Permits for Agriculture & Real Estate Companies - The Associated Press reports that on Tuesday, the FAA issued exceptions to the commercial UAV ban, permitting the monitoring of crops and real estate use for aerial photographs of properties for sale. This is the first time permits have been granted to agriculture and real estate companies.

FAA Poised to Include Limitations on Hobbyist UAVs - The FAA is proposing to amend its regulations to adopt specific rules for the operation of small unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) in the National Airspace System (NAS). .

Judge Rules Against FAA in ‘Landmark’ UAV Challenge -  In a decision dated March 6, NTSB Judge Patrick Geraghty found that the FAA has no regulations that apply to model aircraft or that classify a model aircraft as an unmanned aircraft system.

UAV FAA Regulations For more than five decades, the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has compiled a proven track record of introducing new technology and aircraft safely into the National Airspace System (NAS).

FAA Fact Sheet – Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS) - For Immediate Release.

FAA Certificate of Authorization or Waiver (COA) - Before you can operate a UAV in National Airspace System (NAS) you must have a COA. The average time to issue an authorization for non-emergency operations is less than 60 days,

AG-UAV Sprayers

One of the most advance sprayer technology on the market!
Best Price - Best Flight Time - Best Coverage Rate

The AG-UAV Sprayer is available in 3 Models. The AG-VA Multi-Rotor is Cutting Edge Technology with a coverage rate of 33 1/3 acres/hour or 1,000 in about 30 hours. The AG-UAV sprayers are equipped with Mission Planning Autopilot, Flight Controller and GPS. The AG-UAV are the most advanced UAV Crop Sprayer platform on the market. Compare with other UAV sprayers and you'll agree the AG-UAV line of prayers are the most cost effective, efficient and advanced UAV sprayers on the market. The AG-UAV Series are water resistant.

High efficiency:
1450mm  650mm 14.2kg 20kg

* Coverage Rate

Medium Speed:

Coverage rate: Med speed = 5 m/s , Area Covered by Sprayer = 5 m => Coverage = 5 m/s * 5 m = 25 sq. m / s = 0.0061776 acres/second

Coverage rate for 60 minutes = Coverage rate * 3600 s = 22.23 acres/hr

Max Speed:

Coverage rate: Max speed = 10 m/s , Area Covered by Sprayer = 5 m => Coverage = 10 m/s * 5 m = 50 sq. m / s = 0.012355 acres/second

Coverage rate for 60 minutes = Coverage rate * 3600 s = 44.47 acres/hr

Average of both: 33.5 acres/hr (Usually when operating UAV at 7m/s speed)

These are for illustrative purposes only and does not take into account refueling time etc.  The small the payload means more time spent filling the container.  Note: Flight time and endurance depends on several factors such as wind, speed of the aircraft and the flow rate in which the liquid leaves the tank. In other words, carry the full payload will decrease the flight time vs. a flow rate of 1 liter per minute will increase the flight time.  Naturally, without any payload will maximize its flight time.

Safety Functions:

  • Full dual redundancy (Gemini M & Gemini S -full GPS, IMU, Compass and controllers

  • Automatic switching in real-­time between compass, IMU, GPS or controller if one fails.

  • Rotor fail protection: If one rotor fails, flight controller will compensate for lost rotor and will notify operator via on-screen warnings; aircraft maintains stability allowing operator to safely land.

  • Full Black Box / Flight recording of all flights: flight data shows a real-time video of all operator control input, GPS statuses, vibrate, shake and motor balance statuses along with battery voltage and all other critical telemetry data allowing operator to fully track entire history. All flights are automatically saved on Ground Station. This further adds to safety for operator and VO training as operator-caused issues can be quickly identified. Further, it allows for remote diagnostics and has a financial benefit not requiring aircraft and components to be unnecessarily shipped.

  • Safety parameters: max altitude, distance from home, horizontal speed and vertical speed: defaults are set by HSE, customer can set these as well.

  • High Visibility LED Aviation Lighting: long-range visible, high intensity LED strobes

  • Intelligent Assisted Launch and Landing: aircraft uses GPS and IMU data to determine when the craft is fully on the ground, meaning the craft will not shut rotors off until firmly on the ground. Aircraft also uses IMU data to safely and smoothly handle Ground Effect which lessens stress and accident likelihood for operator.

  • Flight Stall Prevention: Flight controller prevents accidental 'throttle zero' motor stall while in air - in an emergency, operator can switch instantly to 'manual' mode to activate rotor kill.

  • Semi-Automatic Navigation: allows operator to manually override speed and altitude instantly during automatic Ground Station controlled flights

  • 5 Second Auto Lock Rotors: automatically locks rotor from accidental turning after initial power connected and again 5 seconds after rotors stop.
    Ability to change parameters in realtime (during flight)

  • Ability to program, calibrate, debug, and modify Flight Controller information without power to rotors: allows safe physical interaction with UAV while performing maintenance and servicing.

  • Ability to move or edit "Home" (return to home) location if original becomes obstructed (animals, people, or too far of a distance, etc.) after initial launch - if a failure occurs, UAV will land at newly designated location.

  • Geo Fencing to prevent the aircraft from flying above the legal height limits or flying in restricted airspace.

  • Rated up to 65 C

  • Functionality in the cold -20 C

+ Wind:

  • Optimally functional in up to 20-40 km/h cross winds
