Looking for recommendations for new mapping setup. For ease of transport, I'd like to stick with a quadcopter if possible. I'm aware that there are several 'boutique' type designers and assemblers in the USA, but haven't really been able to sort through them for something that is affordable.

My decision making criteria, in rank order:
1. Not made by DJI
2. PPK, with direct shutter (hotshoe) connection
3. 30m+ real/working mission flight time
4. Small/unobtrusive (say absolutely no larger than a Tarot 650)
5. Under $10k with a couple batteries
6. Relatively "professional" looking
7. Ideally RTK capable, with direct geotagging

Any thoughts, any takers? I've done the DIY thing, done the VTOL thing, and currently have an Autel Evo II Enterprise. Looking for something new.
