Coverage and Precision

Wingtra was founded in 2016 as a Swiss company with roots in robotic research. They've developed the Wingtra One, which is a VTOL drone for aerial survey and mapping. It can carry various cameras with a quick swap mounting system. Wingtra's claim to fame is it can be precise and easy to control like a multirotor drone, but can also cover a large area like a fixed wing aircraft. It brings the best of both platforms to the commercial market. Think of it like a grown up E-flite X-Vert that is designed to get work done. Max flight time is listed at just under an hour and that should be great for most operations in a single flight. The Wingtra One sounds like a great drone for those looking to get into the aerial mapping world.

If you want a VTOL, should've looked in the VTOLs forum, loads of them, including conversions of ARF fixed wing models --- https://www.rcgroups.com/vtols-360/

That is very true, but I tried reading up on
APM flightcontroller for VTOL on a XUAV miniTalon....
Its just to difficult to understand for me...
After reading it, I swear to you that I could
fly the Space Shuttle via flight manual.
(It sucked that bad reading that mumbo-jumbo).
APM & ArduPilot is not for me

Wingtra vs other drone


Wingtra is a good drone that can take off and land vertically. It might be an ideal drone for mapping and surveying. It's weight is the reason of its stability however there is another drone which is much more useful, light, with the ability to fly for much longer and better image quality. Here it is
