Farm to Table via Drone Delivery
This project was an experiment to see if drone to table might be a viable concept and I think it could with more development. The S900 is not a simple rig to operate and maintain and when they start doing this regularly, I will need to train someone to operate and maintain the drone. DJI has still not standardized larger batteries for their larger drones so you have to be careful and take your time loading batteries. I nearly crashed my s800 into a pond because of the battery attachment method on the S800 and it is basically the same on the s900. It's a challenging drone to operate even with the stable A2 flight controller - bigger drones are just more stressful.
This was a fun project, and I felt lucky to be able to work on something like this. Exploring the uses of drones has always been one of the reasons I started this website, and this was the most unique thing I've done yet. Now we can all add "Drone to table" to the things drones are good for!
