The M4H Hybrid Crop Spraying Drone features a gasoline + electric power system with great flight times and easy maintenance! This hybrid drone for crop spraying is portable thanks to folding arms and the modular design. The M4H crop dusting UAV can be used for any spraying missions – use it for agricultural, solar panel cleaning, roof spraying and anything else where a spraying drone would save you time and money! The M4H Crop Sprayer Hybrid is perfect for customers who don’t want to deal with battery charging or storage. This spraying UAV is also a great candidate for extreme cold or hot climates where drone batteries suffer.

HOW IT WORKS
You can operate this drone in three different ways; this give you ultimate flexibility and makes it easy to accomplish any spraying job. All modes offer automatic Terrain Following (if equipped), and either manual or fully automatic sprayer functionality.
Easy | Accurate | Repeatable
Use the Google Maps interface to find the area you want to spray with the drone.
Next, drop pins at each corner of the field including any corners. Add obstacles if needed.
The app will design the mission. You can modify the swath, speed and altitude, or adjust for changes in wind direction, etc.
Finally, send the mission to the drone!
When battery or liquid is low, the drone returns automatically and will resume exactly where it left off once replenished.
Use the included Ground Station App to drop waypoints on the corners of your spray area (do this on the included Google Maps, or by flying the drone to the points)
Mark any obstacles or areas to avoid
Input your desired Swath and Altitude settings (see USDA Research for optimal performance)
The software will design the best spray route; this can be rotated for wind or modified
Power up the drone, click a few buttons on the app and the drone will conduct the mission!
Watch our quick explainer for oblong fields!
Fast | Flexible | Simple
This is the fastest method for spraying and works best for square / rectangle shaped areas. As with Fully Automatic, when battery or liquid is low, the drone returns automatically and will resume exactly where it left off once replenished.
Fly the drone to the corner of the field where you’d like to start your mission
Toggle the A-B switch to the “A” position; the app will confirm that point A has been recorded
Fly the drone to the opposite end of the field (the path between these two points will be the line that the drone repeats)
Toggle the A-B switch to the “B” position; the app will confirm that point B has been recorded
Push the RC stick to the left or the right; the drone will slide over to the direction you instructed and it will fly back towards the “A” side of the field and will repeat until you stop it.
The distance between rows (swath), speed and height are based on the parameter you set in the app. If needed, you can shorten or extend either end of the field during the mission
As you might suspect, this is the most basic form of operating the spraying drone. In this mode, you fly the drone with the Remote Controller (RC) and can use either an automatic (speed dependent) pump or manual pump mode. The terrain sensor allows you to fly on hillsides with ease. We recommend you use the GPS position hold feature so that the drone holds a hover and doesn’t drift in the wind.
Automatic Spraying System
Accurate | Precise | Effortless
This awesome feature allows you to focus on flying instead of fumbling with pump speed and extra calculations. Just select the desired flow rate / pump speed and the system does the work for you! The pump speed will adjust to account for flight speed and will turn off as appropriate to avoid over-spraying. When the system detects you are out of chemical, the pump will shut off and the drone will return to its home position automatically! And yes, it leaves a mark where it left off so it can automatically resume 🙂
An enhanced safety feature turns off the pump if there is an emergency 😉
