The Red Dragon dispenser is controlled using a hand-held remote which allows the operator to select various dispensing speeds. This level of control is a significant advancement over the past where the helicopter would have to change speed to achieve the same result. Dispensing rate control enables the dispersal of Dragon Eggs, in perfect concentration levels, to match the terrain below.

The Red Dragon dispenser provides a number of unique advantages over older systems including:

  • Seven different drop rates that can be instantly selected by turning a dial. (Older systems only offered four speeds and were prone to jamming when changing speeds).
  • Micro-processor controlled motor and feed gates that eliminate sphere jamming via automatic jam detection and clearing. (For anyone who has used an older system, this feature couldn’t have come soon enough).
  • Fixed-displacement pumps that deliver the same amount of ethylene glycol, no matter what speed is selected. (With the old method, some spheres got too much or too little glycol depending on the motor speed).
  • A safety system that utilizes a back-up battery to ensure on-board fire protection at all times.

Additional convenience features include a re-settable sphere counter, a larger capacity hopper, easy to use drain valves, a user-friendly tethered remote control and a removable base to provide easy installation in various helicopter configurations.


  • Variable dispense rate from 25-175 eggs per minute.
  • Quick purge system for maximum safety.
  • Maintenance free for easier operation.
  • Smaller size frees up more room inside aircraft.
  • Increased hopper capacity provides enhanced performance
  • Variable speed settings which can be changed on the fly.
  • No need to adjust glycol levels.
