Welcome to some weekend fun and entertainment with drones. We spend a lot of time scouring the web for news, information and more on all the great drones around the globe. In our travels, we encounter some fun and funny stuff, and we want to start sharing that with you. Today we will be taking a look at drones in the farming industry.
No matter what the title says, we refer to this as our Good Idea / Bad Idea series, we just figured a new name was in order, suggestions welcome. Let it be known that we do not endorse or recommend anything we will post here, sort of a “do not try this at home” vibe, but somebody tried it, it was interesting or funny and here it is.
Drones in farming
Next up in our series, let’s explore some fun with drones taking over modern farms.
Before we begin, let’s get a few things out of the way:
Drone legal and safety
This video from MEDIACOM AL shows a large commercial drone fitted with a 20L tank and set of crop sprayers used to spray various liquids on the crops. This is going to be one of the biggest uses for drones in the very near future.
This video from Drone & Sundry shows the second biggest use for drones in the farming sector. The drone pilot uses a Phantom series drone to count the number of crops that are in the one field. Crop counting and management has become much more efficient and cost-effective with the use of drones.
Good idea / bad idea wrap up
As always, we officially recommend you do not try this at home. We want you to always fly safe, to obey all drone laws, but also to have some fun. Of course, if you do try this, please share the details, it’s always fun to see some shenanigans.
If you think this entire series is a bad idea, let us know in the comments below. Otherwise, enjoy the crazy antics caught on film.
