Outline

The YMR-08 is a remote-operated industrial-use drone developed primarily for airborne agricultural pest control. To answer the needs of small or suburban farms, it features a lightweight carbon fiber fuselage and eight rotors (including two coaxial rotors) powered by an electric motor for quieter operation than a conventional engine. This gives it spray performance and precision on par with our industrial-use unmanned helicopters, allowing it to fly for 15 minutes on a single charge while spraying one hectare with agrochemicals. The exterior and individual parts were designed with “Reliable Partner” as the key concept in an ardent pursuit of functional beauty that would please the eye of farmers and spray operators, and faithfully represents our Refined Dynamism design philosophy.
