And that makes sense of course, and it was quite a vague and naive question.
My interest in “planes” comes from the concern of quads suitability to longer distance/area coverage both for imaging/mapping and payload transportation/delivery.
However, the application I’m looking at would likely require many missions and in challenging ground environments, so a traditional fixed wing – mostly because of landing – may be impractical. Hence VTOL. Which specific design though, I have not yet gotten there…so thanks for sharing the presentation
Do you think a Convergence could carry a small payload? I don’t suppose it’d be an issue of raw power but I’m not versed in the transition dynamics and I’m guessing that would be the critical point. Might be fine if the payload is rigidly attached to the fuselage but I’m also considering a payload hanging from a line.
