What VTOL-plane do you recommend for mapping with a Sony A6000-camera?
I am used to MFE Believer which there is a VTOL-kit for, but that is a plane that have been converted. Maybe it is better to get a plane that is specially made for VTOL.
I am also used to FireFLY6, but that one is getting old (2014).
I’ve done a fair bit of work with VTOL believers, I can tell you they do just fine with a6000 payloads. The construction for the conversion parts is a bit wonky in places, but overall I’m happy with the outcome. You can expect about an hour of flight time, which is way less than a well set up normal Believer, but it makes sense when you consider the power system de-optimization from forward flight towards quad flight and then the overall increased weight.
We got a MFE Freeman 2300 home a while ago (oct 24th). So problem solved, for now. Only opened it and inspected the parts (a lot of damages on the EPO). Thats it. Havent had the time to look at it more, yet. Have three Believers (one old that flies very well and two new versions), none of them VTOL though.
There are a lot more VTOLs today on the market than two years ago. Summer 2014 we got the FireFLY6.
