"Are hexa's more fault tolerant?  At the moment I think that ESC's and motors are the usual sources of failure so having less of those ought to be better. What motivates me to consider hexa's is because it's a tradeoff…"

"Are you thinking in a recovery parachute system or something like that?  We return again to the issue of redundancy and fault tolerance. Why quad, why not hex?"

The sUAS market for surveying applications are dominated by fixed-wing aircraft instead of multicopters. The reason is obvious, the multicopters have very short flight time and can not run long flight…

I am looking for use google earth as ground station.

i have download this program.





http://goopstechnologies.com

it is easy to interface to any application:

GooPs can receive data from other applications via a TCP/IP socket. GooPs listens on port 51234 for messages containing NMEA data.



and another similar program:
