Unmanned Aerial Vehicles are great for checking the health and status of a small farm or area of land. With UAVs, one can monitor issues after storms, check the condition of silos and barn roofs, track down livestock, monitor fencing and perimeters. 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.
