Tips for Operating in High-Temperature Environments

Jun 19, 2023


As the busy and burning season approaches, it's important for drone pilots to be aware of the challenges that high-temperature environments can bring. Issues such as low charging speed, overheated charger/batteries, or RC black screen/reboot can often be attributed to overheating. In this article, we will provide some helpful tips to ensure smooth and safe agriculture drone operations in high-temperature conditions.


Battery Care:

Monitor Battery Temperature: If the battery cell temperature exceeds 65℃, the third indicator will flash, indicating overheating. In such cases, the batteries should not be charged. Use a battery cooling box or place the battery in the shade with good ventilation. Wiping the battery case with a damp cloth can also aid in cooling.


Charger Precautions:

Watch for Over-Temperature Warning: When the charger reaches a temperature over 55℃, an over-temperature warning is indicated by a single yellow flash. The charger will enter a derated charging mode. Ensure the air inlet is clear and cool down the charger in a ventilated shade. Avoid direct sunlight and keep the batteries and charger away from heat sources.


Generator Considerations:

Maintain Ventilation: Ensure the generator operates in a well-ventilated environment, with no obstructions to the air inlet/outlet or heat dissipation side. Place the generator at least 1m away from walls.


Remote Control Safety:

Avoid Direct Sunlight: The remote control has built-in over-temperature protection and may automatically shut down and restart in high temperatures. When not in use, lock the screen and place it in a ventilated area away from direct sunlight.


General Precautions:

1. When working in high-temperature environments, take precautions to avoid agrochemical poisoning or heatstroke. 

2. Keep equipment away from direct sunlight, ensure proper ventilation, and avoid using drones in enclosed spaces. 

3. Use a battery cooling box when charging in high-temperature conditions, and keep the charger and batteries separate from the generator in a well-ventilated area. 

4. Also, keep the charger and batteries away from the generator's exhaust pipe.


By following these tips and maintaining a focus on safety, you can effectively operate your TopXGun agriculture drone in high-temperature environments while ensuring the longevity and performance of your equipment. Remember to prioritize your well-being and take breaks as needed to stay hydrated and cool. Stay safe and enjoy your drone operations during the hot summer season!
