  • Arducopter is free. It doesn't technically carry any payload but rather has the capability to control a variety of vehicles that can carry a payload. It is fully open source, so it can be used for anything you want it to be used for, including experimental agriculture and pesticide spraying. Yes it can fly fully autonomous missions using a multitude of applications (Mission Planner, APM Planner, Droid Planner, or Tower). If you want to know more, start reading here:
