Short range missions are defined up to a distance of 1.2 Kilometers. These are typically a multi-rotor design with room underneath for a small payload. In general, cost of these systems can be directly tied to endurance (flight time). The longer it flies, generally, the more it costs. Other major considerations are payload requirements and ground control system (GCS). Unmanned Aerial Specialists has outlined several systems performing well for short range missions. Although there are many systems in the marketplace, we favor turnkey systems with an excellent support network.
