What is the best platform for mapping around 300km of highway?

Hi everyone,

I would like to know what you think is the best solution (price/quality/ease of use) for mapping around 300km (180 miles) of a highway??

We need to do photogrammetry of this project and I have suggested the use of a UAV instead of a manned aircraft.

I imagine that we will need a fix wing solution (or solutions) for doing this project but I would like to have further information.

Any information is useful.

Hi Austin, I am new in this forum Austin, where can I get a skywalker x-8 based on pixhawke. I need an uav like c-astral for long flights. :)

Ideally you need a fixed wing with the following characteristics:

- Hand launch 

- Parachute landing

- Long endurance

- Affordable (you WILL need some spare parts for a project like this, or two aircraft)

- Long range link (capable of BVLOS if your regulation permits)

The best so far for this type of application is the Aeromapper Talon:
