Last time I introduced how to assemble an agriculture drone as beginners, but drones can’t operate or take off as soon as assembled. For a safe and stable farming experience, debugging and inspection are very important to reduce or avoid crash or malfunctions. Here are some notes about debugging and inspection for reference.
- How to link, debug and calibrate an agriculture drone?
Please make sure the aircraft is linked to the remote controller before setting and debugging. After connection, set the basic parameter first, then conduct remote control calibration, accelerometer calibration, compass calibration, flowmeter calibration and weight calibration. Next step is to debug the spraying system and spreading system. You can also set obstacle avoidance, arm alarm or other functions as needed.
Here is a tutorial video for reference:
- What inspections are required before take off?
We need to check each detail carefully before takeoff to make sure the drones can fly and work safely, efficiently and stably. Check if battery or tank is well installed, the connectors of each component are firmly in position, the power is in good condition, all nozzles can spray with same spray width etc..
- Other warm tips regarding operation
You should follow the local drone-related laws and regulations, user manual and safety guide when operating a drone. Stay away from spinning propellers and don’t start the motors in where there are people, animals or other obstacle nearby. If you use pesticides, please follow the pesticide instructions when operation.
