10 listings on DroneTrader you need to check out!
#10-Geodetics UAV Lidar System
Designed to map and measure topographical surfaces with extreme accuracy, the GeoDetics lidar system is perfectly suited for a heavy lift drone such as the DJI M600. This is one of the most expensive listings on DroneTrader, at $65,000! See the listing at https://dronetrader.com/ads/geodetics-geo-mms-lidar
#9-Custom DJI S900 Hexacopter with Tether System
This DJI S900 flies using a custom Pixhawk controller and a BlueVigil tethering system that allows the UAV to fly continuously.

#8-Precision Ag Quantix Drone by Aerovironment
Although it is definitely not anywhere near the most expensive listing on DroneTrader, the Precision Ag Quantix drone is unique in that it is a hybrid drone. It is both a VTOL (Vertical Takeoff and Landing) drone and a drone that transitions to forward flight, allowing for much greater range than a traditional quadcopter.
It also comes with a software subscription to allow for crop analytics and much more.
#7-PrecisionHawk Lancaster Rev 5 Fixed Wing
The reason this one made our list is because of the incredible price on this listing. New the PrecisionHawk Lancaster was around $25,000 and this barely used one is listed at only $3800 USD!! It remains an excellent aerial platform for mapping large areas of land efficiently.

#6-QYSEA Fifish Underwater Drone
This listing is unique as it is one of the few “drones” that does not fly. This remotely operated vehicle is designed specifically for underwater use. It is remotely controlled using 100′ of control cable and has a built in camera and controllable thrusters.
Definitely a must-see! Check it out at https://dronetrader.com/ads/qysea-fifish-v6-underwater-drone-1
