Why is this drone quite a big deal?
We’ve been using drones in Ag for over 5 years now. One of the issues for many has been the complexity and time involved in getting all the components to work together, and reliably capture data.
With the fully integrated sensor suite on the DJI P4 Multispectral, it is so much easier to capture data, the gimbal means windy days will not mean bad data, and it’s a DJI Phantom – so its reliable!
RTK precision. The addition of precision navigation and image capture in a drone of this size, and at this price point is a game changer.
As we move forward and software is able to recognise more and more detail, and automation in ground machinery becomes more, well, automated, we will need this cm-level precision from our aerial data in order to effectively target small areas and even single plants.
Of course data capture is less than half the story. Multispectral data is great, when you know what you’re going to do with it.
But we have learnt that it is not always needed, we can provide a lot of useful insights and vastly improve your field scouting efficiency with smaller, cheaper drones through our Skippy Scout platform. Sometimes less data, is more, so give us a call and tell us what you do, and we can go from there!
