The lipo batteries, used during the flight of the RPAs, are recycled. These can be taken to a clean point (always wrapped in plastic and adhesive tape as a measure of environmental protection), but CEGADRONE, in its commitment to continuous environmental improvement, is carrying out the corresponding procedures to manage them through a company of recycling.
