Flight Planning

Mission, success. FlyPHX includes an easy-to-use wizard to plan your flight, with pre-flight checklists to prepare before the session begins.

Flight Control

Autonomous Flight, Accomplished. Our MAVlink-based Senthawk Autopilot was custom designed for the PHX, offering advanced communication capability with an onboard co-processor. In addition, our Custom PX4 is tuned for optimal PHX performance when in the sky.

Offloading Data

Check, check, and check. In-app camera feedback gives real-time insight into camera function; and, offloading data into FieldAgent is a breeze.

Battery Specs

The ultimate powercouple. Our smart Lithium polymer battery (9,000 mAh, 99Wh, 11.1V) is maximized for the PHX, featuring fuel-gauge monitoring technology. With our smart battery charger, get a full charge in just an hour (and use health checks and warnings to stay in-the-know with battery performance).

Data Link

10-4, PHX. Featuring a two-mile radius, the PHX CommsBox offers built-in networking capabilities to get essential in-flight information about your PHX. Connect to your device wirelessly or via Ethernet.

Faster Data Collection, More Precise Analytics

With the PHX, capture high-resolution aerial imagery for insight into your field. Go deeper with our analytics, which translate imagery into detailed data sets, helping you make critical in-season decisions about key inputs based on identified outcomes.

  • Canopy Cover- Quantify the fraction and uniformity of green vegetation across every acre and every plot for corn, soybean, cotton, canola/OSR, and small grain.
  • Crop Area- Get measurements and delineation of crop area within a field to understand precise boundaries.
  • Crop Health- Quantify the effects of products and treatments across all acres and plots throughout the entire season for corn, soybean, cotton, canola/OSR, and small grain.
  • Flowering- Quantify the fraction and uniformity of flower cover across every acre and every plot for cotton and canola/OSR.
  • Residue Cover- Quantify the extent and fraction of residue covering bare soil prior to crop planting or following crop harvest.
  • Stand Count- Quantify crop emergence and uniformity across every acre and every plot for corn, male/female corn, soybean, cotton, and canola/OSR. 
  • Tassel Count- Ensure seed production purity standards and production goals are met across every acre for corn and male/female corn crop production.
