BIRDIE is faster and more energy-efficient than a quadcopter when in forward flight. And hence the drone is well-suited for the tasks like the aerial mapping of large areas. However, it requires a flat, smooth, open space for landing, while the others can land and take off on the spot, on rough terrain.

The BIRDIE fixed-wing drone those same combined qualities, but only when needed. Because the extra gear on VTOLs does add weight, energy-use, and complexity.
