AscTec Falcon 8 Price and Specs

Falcon 8 is one of the most advanced high-performance drones worldwide. It is used successfully for precision farming and smart agriculture in crop research and agronomic development. 

With impressive area output and latest specs The Ascending Technologies (AscTec) Falcon 8 will convince farmers as useful source of valuable geo information for site-specific crop management of small and medium-scale fields. 

The AscTec Falcon 8 system has a high safety margin with the many exciting and special features. Actually, the price is cheap if it helps to solve problem areas. The Falcon 8 Drone is price tagged $30,000+.

The eight small rotors make it safe, allowing farmers always to operate at the right spot in fields, orchard or vineyard. With sonar sensors and WiFi connectivity (Mobile Ground Station) users can walk around while flying. This is true mobility and a huge advantage for any one-man operation – enabling it to fly autonomously and communicate with the user via the app, efficiency at its best.

Folding carbon fibre props give quiet, robust flight and less prop damage on turn-over landings. With a spectral camera mounted underneath, taking images in the Near InfraRed wavelength; these can be used to create NDVI (Normalized Difference Vegetation Index) maps indicating plant health and pinpointing problem areas, or to show those plants that are very healthy and do not need any chemical treatment. Ground proof these fields for specific solution treatment; either nutrition, infestation, weeds, etc.

With on-board high definition video camera option, AscTec Falcon 8 UAV can transmit live images back to your laptop; farm infrastructure or stock movements set a flight path to observe farm infrastructure, gates, water holes, fence lines and hover closer inspection of any paddock section or live stock. With a flight time of up to half an hour in video mode and having 8 motors for that extra 'insurance'. Falcon 8 UAV Drones system is designed to instantly provide an eye-in-the-sky image.

AscTec Falcon 8 UAV Drone is also versatile - carrying a variety of cameras / sensors / even as a UAV Drone for bird scaring. The Falcon 8 UAV Drone will auto land when low battery power is detected, Return Home function at any time. Bird Scarer to get rid of damaged birds. Falcon 8 UAV Drone is ideally suited to monitor on small and medium-scale areas in less time. Those that are surrounded by trees, hills and can benefit from this drone's ability to hover.
