Yesterday I went to a Beef Conference where we as producers were given a feast of knowledge from a panel of experts in the agricultural field. One of them was a farmer/ pilot/ businessman who shared his knowledge of Drones and outlined clearly how they can be integrated into our farm operation to make many tasks so much easier and faster.
There was a strong emphasis on the legal and safety guidelines for using drones of any kind and all operators must comply with these so be sure to be educated before racing out to buy a drone .
The one I really like however is the Mavic so I have outlined the specifications of this one below. It is a great starter Drone. and is slightly cheaper but more compact making it easy to travel with.

It weighs in at only 1/6th the size of the DJI Phantom 4, the Mavic Pro packs incredible power beneath its the sleek exterior.
It is both precise and powerful
So don’t be put off by its compactness. This little fellow will only impress because it is easy to fly and manoeuvre and incredibly intelligent.. You can set it to follow you from slow while walking to fast while on a bike or skis. It is wonderfully versatile and sensitive being able to detect objects ahead of time to avoid accidents
The big plus is that it is reasonably priced for all that it offers and the advanced technology it possesses.

One of the disadvantages of the Mavic is that it only has a flying time of 27 minutes and a control range of 7 kilometers so you need to be aware of that and factor it into your flying exercise. It is probably worth buying an extra battery.
