Today, coupled with technological development, UAV (Unmanned Aerial Vehicle) systems show an important improvement in civil area applications. UAV systems have active tasks with cost-effective solutions in several areas like defense, logistics, engineering, and agriculture. Especially in agricultural applications, UAV system usage contributes to improvement of the critical parameters of this sector as efficiency and sustainability. Thus, in agricultural areas, improvement and usage of unmanned systems are of importance. In this study, a remote-control rotary wing UAV system that can perform irrigation and spraying and its design, production and application processes are discussed. The designed, verified and all test operations completed UAV system is planned to be used in remote control liquid rejection in the agricultural area.
