Hybrid Gas Generator For UAV (ONLY 1.5 KG! SOON ON SALE)

This is our new generator, designed for medium payload drones, his weight is 1.5 kg, with a power output of 1300 watts.

There are an integrated cooling system and an automatic starter built in, it also has an anti-vibration plate.

The fuel consumption is quite low (600g/h) and the generator is capable of generating up to 50 volts.

We worked very hard on it, now we are planning to sell it (the price will be about 1600$), we hope to start pre-sales in a few months. If you are interested in getting one of these generators write to nicolai.valenti@gmail.com

We are actually making a startup around this project, soon we are also planning to develop a UAV with an integrated super-efficient hybrid generator, it will be made for really heavy payloads and missions with an endurance greater than 7 hours, the targets are SAR missions and drugs transportation.

The effect is remarkable, Agricultural Drones promoted the agriculture green development

China is one of the most serious agricultural diseases and pests in the world, existing plant protection equipment and traditional application methods have been difficult to adapt to large areas, sudden agricultural disease and pest control needs, high operating efficiency, wide scope of application, water-saving drugs environmental Protection, labor and small large and medium-sized plant protection machinery and agricultural aviation plant protection has been rapid development.

Through drone spraying, 1 acres of time 2 minutes, the cost of 15 yuan, the use of drugs than farmers drugged reduction of 1 to 2 times, can save the cost of pesticides 5 to 10 yuan, time-saving, labor-saving, low-cost specialization of the rule of control, is gradually changing the farmers to drugged habits. After the calculation, the specialization of the rule of control per acre to save the grain loss of about 60 kg, increase nearly 150 RMB.

Specialization of the rule of control in strict accordance with the disease and insect information on the application of drugs, to eliminate the high toxicity, high residue of pesticide use, the realization of pesticide reduction and efficiency control, and promote the green development of agriculture. In recent years, the social effects of plant protection drones are increasing: saving pesticides and reducing pesticide residues, increasing efficiency and reducing costs, while making up for labor shortage, especially in rural areas of young adults. It is these just need to promote the plant protection drones this product.

FPV Drone, remote control car, VR glasses–the "Science and Technology Exposition" in primary and middle schools is more interesting

"Science and Technology Green Future" as the theme of Guangzhou Huangpu District Primary and secondary school science and Technology Exposition March 28 in Guangzhou Second Sino-Soviet Experimental School (referred to as "the Second Sino-Soviet Yuan School") held. Aerial filming Guangzhou Huangpu District the second Science and Technology exposition of primary and secondary schools.

Xinhua Hair Wooggare Photo Launching ceremony, deputy director of the Huangpu District Bureau of Education Xu Weimin said that today's world of science and technology, artificial intelligence, "Internet +" and other new technology applications are changing our lives, Chinese manufacturing accelerated to "China-made".

Xinhua Penson Photo "If the current knowledge of mankind is likened to a circle, the larger the known circle, the unknown outside the circle is large enough to be broad enough." Guangzhou Second Middle School principal Zhang Xianlong to encourage students to maintain a sense of curiosity and awe in science.

He believes that the current science and technology Exposition is to learn and carry out the party's 19 spirit "into the campus" vivid practice, through the school-enterprise freewing RC airplane work together, to achieve universal scientific knowledge, advocating scientific methods, the dissemination of scientific values, promote the scientific spirit of the purpose.

The reporter found that the impact of this activity than the previous session of a wider, the participation of teachers and students is no longer limited to the two middle school students in Su Yuan, covering to Huangpu District major primary and secondary schools in the school teachers and students representatives, exhibitors from the eight from 2017 to 10 this year, the charm of the science and Technology Fair is out of the campus, radiation across the region. Guan Chujun operates four-axis aircraft.

Xinhua Hair Penson Photo The scene, rich in "intelligent" elements of the crossing machine, remote control cars, VR glasses, 3D printing pen to become the most eye-catching technology products. Guan Chujun, the first student of the Sino-Soviet school, took part in the Science and Technology Exposition, saying that he was most interested in flying through unmanned aerial vehicles.

He experienced in the scene hand gestures control of four-axis aircraft, hover, flying and other operating skills attracted many students praise the eyes. Jigsaw: Liang display 3D printed works.
