Our drone uses an onboard tank and two downward facing nozzles to apply disinfecting solutions to surfaces.
The drone features an onboard chemical tank and two downward facing nozzles. We also equip you with a handheld controller, a first-person view camera that streams the video feed to the controller, 4 sets of batteries, a charger, and a travel case for your drone.
10L (2.64 gallons).
The disinfecting drone will spray for 10 minutes, but its batteries last up to 15 minutes. We train our customers to replace their batteries when they refill the chemical tank.
Unfolded, the drone is roughly 53 inches in diameter and 24 inches tall. When you fold the drone, it fits into a 24” cubed travel case.
Yes! We pride ourselves on keeping your drones in the air. We offer remote technical support and data maintenance to ensure customer success.
Approximately 15 minutes. We provide each customer with 4 sets of batteries to swap out.

Our maintenance/support program is similar to a car lease. Lucid will cover wear & tear issues on the drone, such as replacing motors when needed. However, if the operator does not follow the operator’s manual and does not follow appropriate flight protocols, the operator will be at fault. To put it in the context of a car, if your brake light comes on, we have you covered! If you’re texting and driving, which causes you to run into a stop sign, then we do not repair the drone for free.
We have an approved chemical program. All of our customers receive access to this list, and we help our customers buy their chemicals for the most cost-effective rates. With that said, our drone is chemical agnostic and you can use the chemicals on the EPA N list.
You can use a luminometer sensor before disinfecting to show the presence of ATP on a surface and then take another measurement after to ensure that you achieve a lower value.
No. Our drones are built and programmed with ease-of-use in mind.
We generally train a company and its employees on how to operate our drones. However, in unique circumstances, we can provide a pilot for specific projects.
Third party companies wishing to operate our drone will need to obtain drone aviation insurance. We have partnered with an insurance company to create a streamlined process to allow you to quickly obtain necessary coverage.
You do not need a license from the FAA to fly the disinfecting drone indoors. However, if you want to fly outdoors, you need your Part 137 Exemption from the FAA, unless you are a public entity, like a public university. We offer online study materials to help you prepare for your test. Out of over 20,000 people that have taken this online study course, there is a 99% success rate!
Yes, we provide hands-on flight training to ensure that you and your employees are competent pilots.
For basic flight controls, most pilots are able to begin effectively flying within 5 minutes. However, we spend a full day with new pilots to run through various scenarios, safety precautions, and make sure they are appropriately prepared for the majority of situations that may occur on the job.
Our drone is equipped with an on-board 2.64 gallon or 10L tank. The operator pours disinfectant solution into the tank, flies over the surface of relevance, and spray disinfectant solution onto the surface of relevance.
The drone is manually flown. We provide a handheld controller that has a live video feed of the drone. Lucid provides hands-on training to teach your crew how to operate our drones with ease!
On average, our drone disinfects at a rate of 150,000 square feet per hour. Results may vary depending on the type of facility and layout.
Our drone folds down into a much smaller footprint and can fit inside a travel case, which we provide for all customers.
Very easy! No prior drone experience is required. We have a demonstrated history of training individuals to successfully fly our drones that have no background with drones.
Training is conducted locally in Charlotte, NC over the course of two days. Prior to on-site training, we send study materials for our customers with information on drone disinfecting operations. While in Charlotte, we educate our customers on all the knowledge they need to know in order to operate our drones competently and confidently, such as battery charging, flight skills, transportation guidelines, safety protocols, and more.
