Kespry Drone 2.0 is a lighter-weight drone the company says flies two times as long, covers two times the ground area, and has two times the wind resilience, due to the new airframe, battery, and flight system improvements.
It can fly over 30 minutes per flight, covering up to 150 acres at a 400-foot altitude, and can operate in up to 25-mph sustained winds and 35-mph wind gusts. The unit weights under 2 kilograms, which puts it in the “Micro UAV” category for streamlined regulatory compliance around the world. The fully automated drone system takes off, flies the designated flight path, and lands, without operator intervention or a joystick. The system includes an on-board LiDAR sensor that automatically detects and avoids obstacles like trees, cranes, and buildings.
