DJI, developer of civil drones and creative camera technology, has launched DJI FlyCart 30 (FC30) to the global market.
DJI says this delivery drone overcomes traditional transport challenges with its large payload capacity, long operation range, high reliability, and intelligent features.
“From agriculture to construction management and surveying, DJI’s industrial-grade drones have transformed industries by improving safety for workers and productivity for businesses,” said Christina Zhang, senior director of corporate strategy at DJI.
“We are optimistic that FlyCart 30 will become a trusted solution for aerial delivery, solving complex terrain and terminal transportation problems efficiently, economically, and most importantly, safely from the air.”
FC30 adopts a coaxial four-axis, eight-blade, multi-rotor configuration with carbon fiber propellers and can achieve a 20 m/s maximum flight speed.
When in its dual-battery configuration, it can carry a 30 kg payload 16 km. In its emergency single-battery configuration, the payload capacity increases to 40 kg for a distance of 8 km.
DJI O3 transmission maintains a stable connection between the drone and remote controllers up to 20 km away. Dual Operator mode allows control to be transferred between two pilots in different locations with a single click.
FC30 maximises product performance and safety in extreme weather and terrain. FC30 has IP55 protection, can operate in temperatures ranging from -20° to 45° C (-4° to 122° F), and can fly in winds up to 12 m/s.
The standard propellers are optimised for altitudes from 0-6,000 m and support flight up to 3,000 m with a 30 kg payload. Self-heating batteries maintain optimal performance even in low temperatures.
FC30’s built-in redundancies and intelligent safety features help ensure safety throughout operation. Before takeoff, it evaluates flight route viability based on environmental conditions, and ensures pre-takeoff safety through audio-visual prompts and by delaying propeller launch.
During flight, the dual active phased array radar and binocular vision systems enable all-weather multidirectional intelligent obstacle sensing, day or night.
The built-in ADS-B signal receiver gives timely warning of nearby crewed aircraft. In emergencies, an integrated parachute can deploy at low attitudes and land the drone stably, protecting both people and property.
