During my vacation last year I had an opportunity to visit some plantations in  India.  Rice plantations spread across vast fields,  growers/farmers have to guard their crop from various intruders such as animals, insects and even from humans. Some of these plantations are grown on hilly areas such as terrace cultivation. These pose even more challenges to the farmers.

Farmers in India are generally poor and they cannot afford expensive equipment. I have designed a low cost, low flying farmer’s drone to scan vast fields for crop health and to track animals destroying his crop.  Purpose is to scan the crop fields 2-3 times a day, this drone can be upgraded to carry additional payload of pesticide spray for the  crops.

The drone is mounted on an X frame (Phisital FPV 220mm), it uses 4 propellers on brushless motors , a vga camera powered by a LiPo battery required to power the drone.

It can fly for 5-10 minutes and cover a distance of 2 kilometers. The drone will be operated using remote controller
