Agricultural Heli/Drone Activity
The feedback from Mr. Lin in Yunlin after flying ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter
In Yunlin, the weather is springtime all year round, plus rich agricultural land irrigated from Zhuoshuixi River, here is the best place to plant rice. Mr. Lin from Yunlin Yuanchang Township grows short grain rice for about 7 acres, the short grain rice is the most popular rice in Taiwan. Last year, due to abnormal climate change and rice blast, it produced a very poor harvest, lots of rice farmers even didn’t make any money. But Mr. Lin doesn’t need to worry about it because he started to fly ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter since last August. Therefore, comparing to others, Mr. Lin gets better harvest up to 1080~1140KG this year!
At first, when Mr. Lin started to fly ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter, he was afraid that the little amount of chemical water may not kill the weeds properly. But after E1 V2 sprayed, Mr. Lin was very satisfied with the result, E1 V2 can bring the chemical all the way down to the roots of plants evenly and appropriately; unlike traditional human spray work, it’s way much more efficiency and time saving. So now Mr. Lin can fly ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter by himself easily also no need to worry about rice blast anymore.
From the experience of Mr. Liang in Miaoli using the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter.
Rice is planted and harvested twice a year, and each harvest is very precious to Mr. Liang. But in the past, it’s hard to work that spraying with back buckets or high-pressure drag pipes, and walking in the muddy fields on foot, and had to endure the attack of pesticides. It was hard and hurtful. He couldn't help but lament that if there is a smarter way to solve his hard work, it would be great. ! Since Mr. Liang purchased the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter in December last year, he has made farming much easier. It not only saves manpower, but also saves 30-40% of the amount of pesticides. In the past, most of the harvest was 1000 to 1100 catty, and when using E1 to spray, the harvest is increased to about 1700 to 1800 catty, allowing Mr. Liang to work easily, harvest the fruits and save costs, and satisfy all three wishes at once! The most important thing is that Mr. Liang speaks that using the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter to do spraying operations, the agricultural sprayers can work easily and smartly, and it is not easy to attack by the pesticides, which provides the good protection for the farmers.
2020.07 Tainan Xinhua
From the experience sharing of Mr. Liu from Tainan Xinhua on using the ALIGN E1 fertilizer spreader.
Mr. Liu said that blast disease of glutinous rice is more serious this year. In addition, due to Tainan’s environment and climate, everyone’s harvest is generally poor. Mr. Liu is worried that his harvest will be worse than expected. But after the harvest, he was very surprised and couldn’t wait to share with ALIGN that the first harvest of this year is around 1,700 catty which is more than the previous harvest of 1,400 catty. He sprayed by ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter for epidemic prevention. Mr. Liu also helped neighbors spray taro, corn amd rice when he has free time. Although the terrain he sprayed on the taro garden is rugged and untidy, the flight difficulty increases, but the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter is stable and controlled, and the spraying effect is very satisfied with neighbors! In addition, Mr. Liu purchased ALIGN fertilizer sprayer, sprayed in the AB Waypoint Mode, with a traverse spacing of about 5 meters and a height of 4.5 meters. Through the characteristics of the helicopter’s single-rotor directional rotation wind field, the seeds and fertilizers were sprayed accurately and evenly to the required positions. Mr. Liu said that the spraying effect far exceeded his expectations! Time-saving and labor-saving results are good!
Mr. Chen planted around 10 acres of corns in Yunlin. After the harvest at the end of June this year, he shared with us happily. In the past, he had to work hard to pull the pipe and spray the medicine step by step. Because corn is a high-stalk crop, corn are higher than normal people, so it’s hard to spray. Sometimes the wind is in disorder, he will be sprayed by the liquid, which hurts the body very much, and the yield of corn is only around 60% to 70%. Since Mr. Chen bought the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter in February this year, he is not worry about being sprayed by the liquid, even after raining, he doesn’t have to step on the muddy to work, just simply operate E1 V2 to complete the spraying work, completely reduce the labor cost and improve human health. Mr. Chen even said that only the helicopter's inherently superior airflow can spray the liquid evenly and accurately on the leaf surface, leaf back and roots. Now, the yield of corn is 90%. The effect is pretty great!
In the past few days, Mr. Chen participated in green farming activities, drone lectures at the local Yunlin Farmers’ Association, shared the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter with farmer, and invited everyone to join the smart farmer! Share the video as follows.
Mr. Zeng from Pingtung planted around 7 acres of rice and 2.4 acres of lichi. He said that the crops of fruit trees are very hard to plant. In the past, it was necessary to rely on manpower to pull the tube to spray the plant protection of each fruit tree, and to ensure that the nutrients and pesticides were evenly sprayed on the crops and leaves, especially Mr. Zeng’s lichi is a special cultivation plant, and it is necessary to take care of it. Therefore, in April last year, he bought the ALIGN E1 (first generation) Agricultural Helicopter, and did spraying operations on the rice and litchi he planted. He said; agricultural helicopters have characteristics different from the multi-axis drone spraying effect and success rate, and the characteristics of the single-rotor directional rotating wind field of the helicopter. Rotating the propeller wind field in the positive and negative directions, the directional wind field is especially important for the flowering period of the crop, and the protection of the fragile flower buds is indeed remarkable. In addition, the large propeller of helicopter has its inherent advantages. The powerful downward airflow generated during operation allows the pesticide not only to be evenly sprayed on the fruit tree, but also to the back of the leaf or even to the bottom of the fruit tree. Over the past year, Mr. Zeng was very satisfied with the control effect of Align E1 Agricultural. Mr. Zeng said happily that this year's harvest is up to 1250 kg. In addition, he also praised the use of pesticide has also been significantly reduced by 30%.
Sharing from Ms. Zhang from Yunlin! Ms. Zhang's company itself is do farming business for other farmer. She also has a large rice field with an area of about 24 acres. Just after the first phase of rice harvesting, Ms. Zhang was eager to share the picture with us. Since purchasing the ALIGN E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter for the spraying operation of her rice field in December last year, in addition to the significant labor saving effect, the use of pesticides has also been reduced by 40%, saving a lot of costs. This year's first crop was the first time they used Align E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter to operate. Compared with the harvest, the rice harvested in the neighboring field not over 900kgs , but Ms. Zhang’s field is reached about 1050 kgs. She felt very happy and worth it!
Now through Align E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter, there is no need to work hard to pull the tube, just standing at the field and watching the E1 operation to easily complete the spraying task.
Mr. Lin at Wufeng District share with Align that he used Align E1 V2 Agricultural Helicopter to do spraying work in rice field around 2acres, and he was satisfied with E1.
With “Helicopter” body design, when it rotates, the strong airflow will carry the spraying directly down to the whole plant leaves and roots reducing the loss cost of spraying. Besides, through Align integrated ground station system with easy operation, even if the customer didn’t fly RC helicopter before, it’s easy to get start by learning 30 minutes and do spraying work independently.
