    I've always been watching for things DJI's doing, never found them doing something apart from application of imaging, today I got news from one of my friend telling that they released a new drone for agricultural application.
    I gotta take a look and.. 8 axis, foldable, and seems some new ventilation system applied for the motor, and able to scan the geographical status and auto-pilot or sth.
    Of cauz just take a look at it, for sure it's gonna be expensive, and seems only available in China, didn't found an English page yet

    Ag sprayer, not sure it could be for anything of any commercial size area but more of spot sprayer

    Sure 22lb is a lot. This ag drone could potentially see other uses.

    My guess is that this will be the new general DJI 8 motor frame based on the learnings from the Inspire1 and S1000 series. Inspiring it is.

    10Kg payload is suitable for a lot of bad ideas. And people being able to spray whatever they want, wherever they want, with an online purchased autonomous drone, is a spooky idea.

    $15k and wider distro does put this within grasp of more folks.

    It is a fantastic new configuration and just shows how much ahead DJI is of the rest of the pack. HOWEVER; Controlled availability may be a good idea!

    Nice, never knew Yamaha was into copters. I mainly use their music equipment :)

    Exactly.

    @damoncooper are you saying this mg-1 is $15k? $ is US$? I did not see pricing listed anywhere for mg-1.
