 Netherlands develops extended range agricultural UAV without battery life limitation


Under normal circumstances, the battery life of the pure electric crop spraying UAV is less than 30 minutes each time. This means that they must stop spraying regularly and return to the base to replace the batteries. Moreover, in order not to run out of batteries too quickly, they dont carry particularly heavy pesticides or fertilizers - which means they need to be replenished regularly. As an alternative, drone4agro has built a multi rotor prototype with wings up to 6 meters (19.7 feet), 16 propellers / motors, and a capacity to carry 50 liters of liquid, combined with a loweheiser two-stroke electronic fuel injection engine and an electric generator. The generator also provides power for the electric motor of the propeller. According to the company, the plane needs to be recharged and refuelled about every five flights. There is no information on when it may be commercialized. Source: cnBeta editor: Ding Guangsheng_ NT1941
