At the scene of disinfection, it was seen that this UAV is much larger than the household UAV, with a diameter of about 2 meters. During the spraying operation, the flight altitude was maintained at a distance of 3-5 meters from the top of the vegetation.
"This is our standard operating height and the spray width is 7 meters. We should keep the speed at about 3 meters per second." Hao Huichuan who is the operator said that compared with ordinary household ones, its operation is more difficult." Although it also has an obstacle prediction function, it is more demanding for the operator because it is too big and there is inertia upon stopping."
Guo Gangqiang said that “during the period of epidemic control, to improve the disinfection efficiency of empty public spaces, we disinfect some of them with UAV.” He also said that such operation will last until the disappearance of epidemic. (Translated by Liu Hongyan, Fathom Language Limited)
