A domestic competitor to the Chinese giants DJI and XAG, Shangdong has recently started a co-operation with Drone4Agro. This Netherlands-based firm will now supply the CE approved U16L-4 application drone for those looking for a smaller model than its existing, home-built products.
Equipped with a 16 litre capacity tank, the U16L-4 has eight nozzles. These are fitted in pairs, facing forwards and backwards, under each of the four rotors to provide an effective swath width of 4-8m. A dual pump supplies flowrates between 3-8 litres/min with automatic rate control.
It comes with RTK positioning as standard as well as HD video camera. It offers completely autonomous operation via an, unspecified, App on the hand-held controller.
