The XAG V40 and P40 are fully autonomous drones that can conduct mapping and spraying.

The V40 is XAG’s flagship agricultural drone. The tilting twin-rotor drone is an upgraded model of the XAG P Series and is more compact, flexible, and easy to transport with four arms.

Effective spray width of up to 10 metres

According to the Chinese drone and field robot manufacturer, the twin-rotor structure of the V40 contributes to an effective spray width of up to 10 metres. XAG claims thanks to aerodynamic optimisations, its spray penetration is over twice that of a traditional multi-rotor drone, making drops penetrate more precisely into dense crop canopies. This is to provide stronger protection against weeds, diseases, and insect pests.

Both the V40 and the P40 drones support three different task systems – XAG RevoSpray, RevoCast, and RealTerra, which allows farmers to use the same platform for collecting digital field maps, sowing seeds, and controlling crop diseases.

Variable-rate operations

For the first time, XAG’s RealTerra system enables an agricultural drone to have rapid mapping capability. After it maps and analyses farmland images autonomously, both V40 and P40 can be rapidly switched into RevoSpray or RevoCast systems to carry out variable-rate spraying or sowing.
