Inexpensive: Once you buy a Jump Pack, you never have to buy a battery again. Pay per use
A Jump Pack is a collective term for one Dronoco Universal Landing Gear assembly and two battery packs.
The landing gear assembly is the universal hardware that attaches to the underbelly of almost any battery powered multi rotor UAV. This specialized hardware retains two of our battery packs in each "skid" of the landing gear in a battery pack "receiver".
Every landing gear assembly is dimensionally standardized. Because of this standardization, the RangeStation® vending robotics know exactly where the battery packs are located on UAV’s, and can extract and replace battery packs on any aircraft that has is fitted with our universal landing gear hardware.
Identification of each aircraft on our system is an important security consideration. It will also become an FAA requirement in the near future. For this reason each Dronoco landing gear has a unique RFID tag built into it specifically to identify each aircraft that lands on a RangeStation®. A database of these tags is maintained by our servers. This is not the “tail number” of the aircraft issued by the FAA, however, the two can and will be linked on our servers during the client registration process.
