Yamaha’s Japanese company has unveiled two new models for commercial drones. Fazer R and Fazer R G2 are miniature helicopter-like devices designed for industry and agriculture.
Yamaha is best known for its excellent motorcycles and audio equipment, including amplifiers and pianos. However, the Japanese company in its offer has many other products and has just shown the latest of them. These are two new models of unmanned commercial vehicles, Fazer R and Fazer R F2.
The first of the new models is a model for agriculture. The device was designed to spray fields with pesticides to protect crops against the development of parasites. Dron on a single 24-liter fuel tank can spray four hectares of field, consuming 32 liters of herbicide.
The Fazer R is powered by a 2-cylinder engine, well known from other drones belonging to this family. Compared to other units, however, this was strengthened. Its power is 20.6 kW (the predecessor is 19.1 kW), and additionally increased the exhaust diameter and improved compression. This drona model will be available in November and will cost about $ 100,000.
The second model of the Fazer R G2 looks the same, but its purpose is slightly different. We do not find a herbicide tank in it, because this model was created to transport objects, take pictures and some other tasks. The device can move in autonomous mode, reaching a ceiling of 2800 m. Its range is 90 km, while the maximum lifting capacity is 35 kg.
