Frequently Asked Questions

Here are some FAQ’s about our products and some prior to purchase answers for customers who want to know more about our products.
What products can be applied with a drone?

Any liquid product between 0.5 and 10 gallon per ac total volume.
The most common liquid products applied to a crop would be fungicides, insecticides, foliar fertilizers, and herbicides. It works just like any other sprayer. Mix your products and fill the tank.
Any granular product between 1 and 300 lbs. per ac total. In crop situations, broadcasting a small grain seed over the top of an existing crop is a common, and a useful practice for drones.

How many acres per hour can a drone spray?

Two gallons per acre is a commonly labeled carrier volume for many aerial applied products. At that volume, 18 acres per hour is realistically achievable. At 1 gallon per acre, the efficiency increases to 26 acres per hour. The application efficiency depends upon several factors, liquid rate per acre, field shape and size, field accessibility, and setup for refill. Simply put, the more acres sprayed per tank refill, the more acres per hour you will cover. The Agras T16 has a 4 gallon tank so 2 acres per refill is what you can expect spraying 2 gallons per acre at maximum efficiency. A fast refill time and short distance from refill area to spray point is crucial to achieving maximum efficiency. Once landed, the Agras T16 can be refilled, have battery replacement, and take off in less than one minute, the fastest of all sprayer drones. The home/refill point can be moved to stay close to each pass, therefore increasing efficiency.

How much does the tank hold?

The T16 holds 16 liters which converts to 4.2 gallons of liquid material.
The granular tank of the T16 is 5 gallons and will hold about 35 lbs. of granular material.
The MG-1P holds 10 liters or 2.6 gallons of liquid, and the granular tank with hold about 17 lbs. of granular material.

How wide can The T16 spray per pass?

With the rotor wash from the props, different spray widths can be achieved by flying at different heights. We have tested the spray pattern of the T16 and have determined that at a 10-12ft spray height the spray pattern is 20 ft. At a 6-7ft spray height the spray pattern is 15 ft. The user sets the height on the controller and the drone keeps the height consistent across the field thanks to the DBF imaging radar. Alternatively, Booms can be attached to the T16 in order to achieve a higher degree of spray pattern accuracy.

What is the max pump spray rate?

The T16 has a max spray rate of 4.8L/minute (1.26 gal/min). Therefore a full liquid tank can be emptied in as fast as 3 minutes 30 seconds. The pumps are operated with brushless motors that automatically adjust the spray rate in accordance with flight speed.

How much does the T16 weigh?

The T16 weighs 41kg (90 lbs.) If fully loaded with liquid. When empty and the spray tank pulled out, the T16 weighs a little less than 55 lbs. Which puts it under the part 107 UAV license.

How fast does the T16 fly when spraying?

Up to 23 ft/sec = 15.5 mph. The flight speed during a spraying operation is automatically adjusted to achieve the gallons/acre that the user inputs. During manual flight the T16 can fly as fast at 33 ft/sec or 22.5 mph

How long can the T16 fly on one battery?

This depends on how fast the spray tank is emptied during operation. When emptied slowly at a low gal/acre rate then you can expect at least 10 min of flight time. When emptied at a faster rate,  it will achieve 15 min of flight. One battery charge will last two tank fills if emptied at a fast rate.

Does the T16 have a camera?

Both the T16 and the MG-1P have a high definition FPV (First Person View) camera. The user can see what the drone sees live on the controller screen. The FPV camera has a realistic 1 mile range. This is very useful when spot spraying weeds.

What happens if the drone flies towards a tree, building, or obstruction?

The T16 and MG-1P each have on board DBF imaging radar for collision avoidance for both the front and back of the drone. In other words the drone will not fly into anything in both automatic operation or manual operation. During automatic operation the drone can be set to fly around obstacles autonomously. Useful with spraying in a field that has power poles or trees.
