*Note – all charges listed below do not include GST which will be added to the final figure

Drone-on-task charges:

We have both a per Ha rate and an hourly rate.  We will discuss with you which rate best suits your task.

PER HECTARE RATE (for cultivations and similar requiring full spray coverage)

$30 plus half the water rate required

Example:  5 Ha to be covered at 40L/Ha water rate

= $30 + 40/2 per Ha

=$30 + 20 per Ha

= $50 per Ha

= $250 for 5 Ha


PER HOUR RATE (for linear tasks like table drains or spot spraying)

$100 per hour on task


Other applicable charges:


We charge out travel at $1 per Km one way only.  This means that if your property is 50 Km away from Drone Commander Base (McNally Rd Cambooya) your invoice will include $50 for travel.  We use the ‘whereis’ website to determine road travel distance.

Our intention is to minimise travel cost for all, so where we can relocate for a specific group of spraying operations, travel will be calculated from our deployed base location.  This will be discussed with you prior to the task.


$100 will be added to your invoice for these peripheral but necessary activities.


Charges that may be applicable:


If you require us to provide the chemical(s) for your spray application, we will charge these to you at cost plus a small administrative fee.  We will discuss this with you prior to the task.

Complex Chemical Handling

Some chemicals (such as Gramoxone etc) require significant deployment of PPE and other risk management elements involving additional time and expense to ensure a safe and effective spraying operation.  This is likely to involve an additional fee to cover specialist equipment (at cost) and the additional time involved (at the hourly rate).
