    I'm really interested in getting into the fixed wing drone category. I saw the YouTube videos on the eBee and thought how perfect!

    So I contacted one of the eBee retailers and asked for pricing. This is their reply:

    "The standard eBee system is $16,990 and includes the following:

    -2.4 GHZ USB radio modem

    -two 220 v lithium eBee batteries

    -battery charger

    -one spare propeller and rubber band pack

    -one EPPP glue kit

    -transport box

    -user manual

    -emotion2 mission planning software

    -Sony WX 18 MP RGB camera


    There are many options for photogrammetry software (Pix4D):

    -Pix4D Mapper Pro (2 seats) $ 8,700

    -Pix4D Mapper Pro (1 seat) $ 4,900"

    I guess that software was pretty costly to develop!

    That's a standard type price for surveying and mapping equipment.
    Add RTK GPS receiver and software and you're at $34000.
    Then people wonder why the fee to have your property surveyed is so high.
