I've been researching the UAV space for the past several months for solutions around real payload built on an aviation background. I have several years in operations with heavy lift helicopters. Seems a little too early for UAV with Payload as either the manufacturers don't have a sense of TBO times for their aircraft, which equates to absorbent pricing - comparable to a helicopter or the regulations haven't been progressive in this space. In the interim I've been narrowing in on Tether and Confined Space.

Can’t argue with you about that, it’s a tough tough question.

What level of payload are you talking about? 'Real' is a little subjective

Thanks for the link - very impressive! I just spent the past couple days at Drones for the CDN Energy Market conference - so much happening in this space. BVLOS seems to be the hot topic as regulators struggle with implementation, which will be a key moving into this type of payload.
