"René Hello and thank you to revive this thread. Compared with all the points mentioned above, an important factor is the price. It is true that UAVs made of carbon or composite are probably strongest, but most UAVs manufactured in EPO / EPP…"

"Frejus, Look at the X-UAV Talon. Definitely NOT "Toy-Looking", and a wing extension kit is forthcoming, carry more payload. I've only flown mine in manual and STAB so far, and have been pleasantly surprised by it's handling and…"

"I've never seen one flying, but it looks easy to fly, stable, crash-resistant and very practical. But... it looks very draggy. I don't have the figures, but I don't think it would be a range winner. I don't think it was designed…"

"I like the looks of Maja, just very expensive to get it in South Africa. Any airframe with a tailplane, or canard, is going to be easier, and more forgiving than a wing only design."

"Here my 2 cent: If you really want to discuss efficiency, tailed designs are better. They need less wing area to carry the same weight, and you have an excelent performance with flaps, for short, easier and safer landing and takeoff. Less wing area…"

"Hi, what ESC, motor, battery set up do you have with your X5? I'm about to get an X5 and have all the kit for 3s batteries. If I could avoid shelling out for 4s ESCs, motors, batteries and chargers I'd be very happy. Thanks :)"

"From my experience 1 hour for mapping is good if you can get close to the survey site (checking images, etc after an hour is ok to see everything works well). If you need to launch from far away, more flight time is better."

"Just out of curiosity, what kind of flight duration and range are people needing for your basic mapping missions?  "
