Hallo,I've start Aerial mapping using multicopter, it has very good result with the flexible landing spot, flying still, etc.But the problem is, what if i have bigger Area to cover?I'm interesting in…Continue
"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…"
First of all, let me introduce myself because this is my first post on this forums. I'm the CEO of Novadrone. We design and create drones for civil applications, with them we provide photogrammetry and remote sensing services for…"
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 describe my situation as it may help OP to decide.
I am a multi-copter pilot who wants now to go for a special mix of ortho-photography and FLIR.I had exactly the same question 2 weeks ago : flying wing or plane.
My priority :
- I do not…"
"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…"
"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."
"I built a regular old wing once that was by chance balanced in a way that allowed it to glide without a tail. It was a highly cambered foil too. It was all in the balance. I expected it to flutter and rotate around the…"
