Yamaha Motor Corporation, U.S.A. announced today that Yamaha’s newly-developed  remotely piloted helicopter, the FAZER, will be shown for the first time in the U.S. at the AUVSI Unmanned Systems 2014 (Booth 1709) May 12 through May 15 in Orlando, FL. The FAZER is the next generation of remotely piloted helicopters in the field of precision agricultural. The Yamaha RMax, which will also be on display, has been the high performance standard in remotely piloted helicopters designed for agriculture spraying since its introduction in 1997. The FAZER benefits from Yamaha’s extensive history in this field.

Enhancements to the new FAZER include the following:

  • Increased payload capacity (50% improvement over the previous model)
  • Higher functionality using a newly-designed transmitter and new control system
  • 24% more power, low fuel consumption and quieter operation thanks to the all-new fuel-injected four-stroke engine

The result of the design focus for the FAZER is a highly versatile, next-generation airframe platform. The new model has a higher level of performance and enhances ease of operation to cater to the demands of precision agriculture and agricultural spraying.
