D8 High Altitude Spraying
- December 3, 2019
This D8 series aircraft has been produced to allow spraying at much greater height than the original Harrier version. The D8 is a very powerful aircraft that can lift the hose full of water to over 200 feet. Spraying is undertaken using our 2nd generation robotic spray arm that now offers various control modes such as full proportional, position and hybrid position modes, and also includes automated side to side and rotational movements of the spray arm to cover specific areas with only general directional control required from the operator. A clear view of the spraying operation is provided by a high mounted FPV camera including a one axis gimbal with a cleaning pad to keep the camera free of water and maintain a clear view for the operator.
