Pilot - - ROTORHEADS -

Aerial ap­pli­ca­tions com­pany UAVOS has con­verted a Robin­son R22-UV he­li­copter for use as an un­manned agri­cul­tural drone. It is equipped with a 100-litre tank and spray sys­tem for liq­uid chem­i­cal de­liv­ery and has an op­er­a­tional en­durance of around two hours. UAVOS says the R22-UV ‘can be op­er­ated in re­gions with­out air­fields, un­der se­vere weather conditions and dur­ing night time, in conditions with a high prob­a­bil­ity of risk for the pi­lot, and un­like heavy ma­chin­ery, which can­not go into a field im­me­di­ately af­ter a heavy rain, the UAV has no im­pact on the ground.’
