Hi, I'm looking for ready to go UAV to help in our business. We need to monitor large areas of agricultural land in Africa. Idealy we need a system that is very easy to operate, that can take photos and stich them together so we can show farmers what is going on in their fields. I have looked at Cropcam but think it is a bit weak for our conditions, and also am struggling to get a meaningful response from them. Our budget is around the $30 000 mark for a complete system that we can use as a meaningful business tool. Please help, I am an absolute beginer to all things UAV and radio controlled.

    Hi,
    We have an agricultural UAV in development in Poland
    and we would like to tune our project to the needs of the people like you.

    How would you define the task:
    -payload (500g camera?)
    -desired resolution (in m or cm?)
    -infrared or visible (IR recommended)?
    -who has to do the georeferencing?
    -typical size of the field?
    -typical terrain for landing?
    -amount of job per day?
    -possibility to recharge and reorganise overnight in comfortable room or multi-day trip in a truck?
    -presence of skilled manual RC operator in each team excluded (fully automatic takeoff and landing?)?
    -the speed of weather change: what speed of wind expect if the weather worsens suddenly inflight?
    -typical operating temperatures and humidity (equatorial or saharan)?
    -can you accept getting rid of realtime ground control station
    as long as the device does the trip autonomously relative to takeoff position?
    -do you need realtime video (not recommended)?
    -time schedule (ASAP or As Soon As Yesterday I guess)?

    What startegy do you prefer:
    grab as much data as it gets in minimal amount of time than analyse in clean room, distribute mornings or overnight,
    or perform all task at the field.

    Thank you for any feedback.
  • Cropcam has no customer service. We tried getting ahold of them and the person who answered didn't even know what company we were trying to get ahold of.
  • It's a new Hungarian UAV for civilian purposes:

"Wow, Ning2 looks really great on mobile. I had sort of drifted away as my browse-time went more on my phone, so this is great."
