SkyHunter vs Hercules Wing

I have already done my homework going through the 2 specific SH and Hercules thread, but would any owner please tell me what would be a reasonable choice between those 2 for professional orthophotography, come rain or come shine ?

Until now, all others things being equal, the only advantage I can see toward the Hercules is a higher resistance to potential shocks. Stability, crosswinds resistance, lifting capacity ( 4x 5000 4s) seem to be the same for both models.

In that case the Hercules would be a winner for me as the only default for the SH seems to not cope so well with hard landings which may occur one day or another...

What is your experience ?

I have only been flying the sky hunter for a short time and I flew the x8 for a year or so.
If I was in your position Id go with a wing type aircraft. Most of the professional orthography
systems I have seen have been wing type aircraft. I think you should make a list of what
capability you need and make your choice from there.

Thx.

I want something exactly like the Sky Hunter but rock solid :-)

Rocks can't fly, I know
