FIXAR has released a whitepaper that outlines how to evaluate the economic efficiency of different types of UAVs (unmanned aerial vehicles) for commercial applications. The whitepaper considers three different use cases, comparing FIXAR’s 007 fixed-wing VTOL UAV with a standard multirotor drone and taking into account a variety of factors such as endurance, operational costs and productivity.

The use cases detailed by the whitepaper include:

  • Aerial photography of a 60 square kilometre landscape
  • Long-distance linear infrastructure inspection
  • Drone-based delivery with payloads of up to 3 kg
