Parrot Bluegrass Fields vs SenseFly eBee X – DSLRPros Official Blog

Let’s face it. It can be overwhelming to sift through all the fine print on all the options on the market when trying to find the right drone to fit your business. Is a quadcopter (or hexacopter? Or even bigger?) the best tool for the job? Or is a fixed-wing drone the way to go? If you need to cover large areas of territory and require on your aircraft staying aloft for a long time (longer than 20-25 minutes), a fixed-wing drone is likely what you need. If you need a drone to just do some scouting or inspect smaller areas of land then standard quadcopter is what you need. Once you’ve settled on a fixed-wing or quadcopter, there are still a myriad of options available. How do you know which one will be the best fit for the work you need done? Here we compare two standout agricultural drones on the market today, the senseFly eBee X, and the Parrot Bluegrass Fields Drone.

The eBee X is produced by senseFly, a subsidiary of Parrot, which makes sense, as Parrot is one of the industry leaders in drones for mapping and agriculture applications. The eBee X is marketed as the “fixed-wing drone for all your mapping needs”, suited to applications from agriculture to surveying to construction to mining. Its adaptability comes in large part from the options of cameras and sensors that can be used on the fixed wing to fit your information gathering needs.

The Parrot Bluegrass Drone, on the other hand, is a more specialized drone, a one-trick pony so to speak, designed primarily for agriculture applications. This is an all-in-one package solution specifically for farmers, taking them from field to data as effortlessly as possible.
