With their energy efficiency and multi-payload capacity, fixed-wing drones are perfect for surveying or surveilling large areas. But which is the most popular fixed-wing drone in America?
According to the data shared by the FAA, the senseFly eBee is the fixed-wing drone of choice for most commercial drone operators in the US.
Over 40% of all commercial fixed-wing drone registrations in the country since 2016 have been for the eBee, which was first released in 2013.
