M8A Pro – Seed Spreading Drone

Write a Review

Two Drones in One! The M8A Pro Seed Spreading Drone also quickly converts to a spraying drone! 

SKU: .u.m8s.RTF Category:

Save time on the field by using our seed spreading drone, the M8A Pro! But wait – there’s more! This aircraft also works as a crop sprayer drone! 

Whether you are looking for a granule spreading drone, or an agriculture spraying drone – the M8A Pro is the perfect combination… two drones in one! That means less parts, less headache and one drone that does it all. You can also attach a multispectral camera to detect crop-health and increase your savings by spot-spraying. All by using one drone!

This large capacity spreader drone carries up to 44lbs (20kg) of seed weight, or 5.28gal (20L) of chemical. The extra-large capacity allows you to spray 30+ acres in an hour (depending on application rate)! That means less time handling chemicals, and reliable coverage! The full commercial autopilot has precise GPS (with optional RTK) ensuring an accurate application season after season. Oh, and it’s really easy to fly!

Our included Ground Station Software makes flight planning a breeze – use Google Maps and simply plot the corners of your field, answer a few questions and the spraying software does the rest! What about controlling the sprayer? Even better! It is fully automated and speed-dependent as well! When the tank is empty, the drone flies home so you can refill it. Once replenished, it will fly back to where it left off and continue spraying. Easy as that! Plus, the seed spreading drone accessory is totally adjustable as well.

Is your terrain uneven? No problem! The included Terrain Sensor (available when spraying), automatically navigates hills and slopes.

How about maintenance?

The M8A Pro is an all electric drone, so maintenance is simple – batteries and props; average operation costs are about $7-$10/hour including replacing those things per schedule. This low-operation cost also make this drone sprayer a great replacement for backpack spraying, nurseries, right-of-way and hard to reach places.

Low maintenance, easy to fly and highly productive – the M8A Pro is a favorite among applicators and farmers alike. Get in touch with us today for a free quote!
