Storm 6 1.2

I have a 18,000 acre ranch in Texas and am interested in purchasing a drone that will allow me to video the property.  I haven't been able to find to much information about all the different setups. I am looking for something in the in the moderate to expert ranch that has a long battery life as well as long range.  It must have FPV.  I have tried contacting Helipal.com but they are not to helpful. 

I was also looking at the DJI phantom models but feel those are to beginner for what I am looking to do.

  • For the size area, you really want to use an airplane over a 'copter. I can push my quad copter to about 10 minutes flight time. I have had 50 minute flights with my very tired and battered 3 year old Skywalker (Airplane).

    It also depends what you want your intent is for photography.

    • not really interested in all 18,000 at one time but would like to climb some of the taller mountains we have with the drone and film.  Would the storm 6 1.2 with FPV range like 2000 yards or not even close?

      I am also looking into purchasing extra upgraded batteries to extend play time.

      • The problem with "bigger" batteries is the extra weight reduces flight time due to the increased load on the motors. There is, however, a break even point somewhere between too large of a battery and extended flight time.
