Mapping and Surveying drone
Choosing a Drone
A drone needs to work reliably in your environment in order to provide useful data. The biggest choice to make around a drone is whether to pick a fixed wing or multirotor aircraft. Fixed wing aircraft fly longer and cover more area, into tens of thousands of acres per work day with the E384-Heavy. As a result they tend to be larger and to require more space for launch and recovery. The E386 uses a parachute to allow for safe recovery in confined areas or on very rough terrain. Multirotors can work in extremely confined areas but typically only cover up to about 100 acres per flight and carry a limited payload.
Weather conditions can significantly affect the operations of small unmanned aircraft. Strong prevailing wind or wind gusts can reduce performance or the quality of collected imagery. Just as with manned aircraft, high altitude, heat and humidity affect performance and efficiency. Plan for longer ascents and shorter flights when flying in these conditions.
