Typically, I would say EDF results in short flight times which wouldn't work for long range flight.

Ok thanks for the info.

Would it be due to battery draw?

Yep, I don't think I've ever seen a EDF plane get more then 10 minutes flight time. They suck a battery down pretty fast

I have seen a few ai rhogs conversions using an edf that were getting a fair amount of air time flying very conservatively. However, that may decrease with the addition weight of the FPV gear.
