Crop cam GPS enabled plane for your farm

Here’s an emerging technology that will help farmers become more efficient using the latests GPS gizmos.

The CropCam is a self-guided GPS plane for keeping up with your crops. The farmer tosses it into the air, and the CropCam will fly around in a preset pattern around his fields, snapping precise stills marked with latitude and longitude of the ground below. The six pound plane can cover 160 acres per launch, which is enough for many a farmer, and is a quick option to assess distributions of disease and a convenient way to document growing progress year to year.
