The AgEagle RAPID Carbon Pro covers up to 250 acres in one flight. It flies at up to 100 km/h and typical imaging speed is 50 km/h so that a quarter-section is completed in about 25 minutes.
That type of coverage is great for Canada's large acreages, but what if you only need a system to fly 50 acres at a time, or are only wanting to experiment with NDVI imagery for the first time? AgEagle Canada is now offering a new option ... introducing the DJI Inspire 1 for agriculture.
The DJI Inspire 1 is commonly available as a prosumer videography platform. But a few of the features that make it great for video are also a unique advantage for crop scouting -- the landing gear lifts out of the way of the camera, allowing you to get an up-close view right at canopy level. And by adding a few agriculture-focused elements, the DJI Inspire 1 becomes a great crop scouting tool. Our packages include unique elements you won't get from your local electronics resellers:
an NDVI-converted camera (still at the original 12MP resolution)
the ability to fly with DroneDeploy for automatic waypointing & stitching (beta)
extras required to keep you flying in the field (sunshades, batteries, chargers)
We offer two packages -- the "Inspired Ag Basic" with one extra higher-capacity TB48 battery and the "Inspired Ag Pro" that lets you use the Inspire as a true tool in your pickup:
4 batteries (one TB47, three TB48 -- estimated total flight time 84 minutes)
a four-battery charging hub
a heavy-duty, air-tight Microraptor case for safely transporting with camera on
an NDVI-converted camera & gimbal, in addition to the standard camera
DroneDeploy flight pathing & image stitching for the rest of 2015
sunshade for your phone/tablet
Typical uses for these systems include:
1. check strips for fertility, fungicide, or seeding rates
2. smaller-scale field trials, whether conducted by the farmer or an input supplier
3. weed inspection or follow-up
4. small-scale forensic agronomy impacting small acreages:
a. field obstructions (power structures, pipelines)
b. impact of soil movement
c. herbicide drift
d. ineffective pesticide applications
e. hail or other insurance events
f. trampling damage
5. farmers wanting a lower-priced, but reliable option before committing to an AgEagle RAPID
