Chinese drone manufacturer MMC is a leader in industrial drone solutions of all types – and withe the Swift solution, they’ve brought the same precision and flexibility found in their other offerings into the fields.

The MMC Swift is a turnkey solution for crop spraying, providing farmers with new ways to increase yields and reduce costs. 

While crop spraying has traditionally been done by hand or with small planes, drones can not only provide a less expensive solution, they do the job far better.  The MMC Swift solution combines a state of the art aircraft, precision spraying payloads and the best of new automated operation technology.   Featuring the Professional FC T1-A flight controller, Liquid Pressure Spraying System and Fog Spraying Drone System, the Swift stands out in its field – pun intended.

The Professional FC T1-A Flight Controller

The Swift can’t only do crop spraying less expensively than other small aircraft: it does the job significantly better.  The T1 – A automates flight for ultimate precision, with a terrain following radar module that can adjust the flying height of the Swift drone in real time, ensuring that the relative height between the drone and the crops remains consistent to within a centimeter, regardless of the terrain.  The module is designed to meet with the IP 65 protection standards.

T1-A also provides a variety of operation modes: including AB point operation, semi-automatic operation and manual operation.

  • Regional-planning mode: the user can select the operation area and set operation distance, flight speed, altitude and other information. The aircraft automatically flies back and forth according to the specified distance and traverses the entire area to complete the work.
  • AB point mode: the aircraft automatically sprays pesticides in accordance with the established route – suitable for large regular areas.
  • Semi-automatic operation mode: the user can control the aircraft flying in parallel, forward and backward. The aircraft automatically sprays pesticides, which is suitable for operation in the irregular areas.
  • Manual mode: the user can closely control both flight and spraying of pesticides, which is suitable for more complex areas.

“One Key Return” Function

In addition, when the T1-A needs to make a stop – for a battery change, chemical refill, or other issue – the T1-A can automatically shut off the water pump and precisely identify the stopping point.  With the “one key to return” function, the T1-A will fly to that point after relaunching and restart the operation from there, ensuring continuous operation and a perfect application of spray.

Fog Spraying

The Swift solution offers a Fog Spraying System – the very first of its kind adapted for use on drones.  Fog systems generate tiny droplets and provide a more uniform coverage of spray.  Used heavily in tree agriculture, this is a major addition to the toolset for agronomists – a far less expensive and easier option than other aerial solutions based on small planes or installed ground sprayers.

 Finally, Swift flies regardless of your terrain and environment.  Made of industrial aluminum, the drone is strong, shockproof, and built for endurance.
