Yamaha RMAX – 260 CC Monster Drone for Agricultural Spraying

at $160,000 you would probably buy a 100 Drones from DJI but then you would not beat the 260CC Yamaha, the monster of a coptor drone which weights 100KG. The Yamaha Rmax is probably a bit too big for entertaiment and surely a bit dangerous. The first RC Coptor which was approved by the FAA for commercial purpose, the Yamaha RMAX is not something you can buy off the shelf though! With mandatory 3 week training for the operator and a complete background check of the buyer, the Yamaha RMAX is not a machine which can be taken for granted. While there are many news about RC Coptors for personal use not killing anyone,

FPV Aces Racing on 3rd October

Drones are now not just for the purpose of taking videos. There are people who find fun in even the most boring of things and the drone racers are not those kind! They spice up things which are already intresting. Last time i thought that drones could be used for races was just a minute ago. That said, I never thought of racing cars and bikes because it costs a fortune. Think of all the Nitros and special gears on your car if you wanted to race! Fortunately we will not be seeing nitros on the drones at the FPV Aces. We will be seeing some real good race though and

Drones Replace humans for Bridge inspection in Duluth

Its nothing new that drones are taking human jobs and the latest in news is the Bridge inspection job in Duluth. Inspecting a bridge, high above water could be a task which requires more than technical knowledge about the bridge itself. You need to be cautious about weather conditions, safety norms and a lot more. It turns out that its a responsibility for the company doing the inspection and a risk for the person doing it. Replacing such jobs with machines were always considered but without luck. With drones on the scene, things seem to take a better turn.

Drones and its Uses

Drones is a very general term for any air borne vehicle which is not manned. Technically the term should be UA or an unmanned aircraft. Initially built during the world war 2 the drones were used to bomb a location remotely from another air craft which was manned. During the world war 2 , it was evident that the loss of a pilot was more damaging than the loss of equipment or aircraft’s. Time has changed and today drones are used for wider purposes from medical to Agricultural industries. Hobbyists have started using drones for shooting videos and aerial photographs. The device itself has become more compact yet sophisticated. With camera’s
