There are now many powerful, lower cost LiDAR sensors available. The issue is putting them to use. It is no easy matter to effectively mount a sensor to a drone and sync it with an INS or IMU to get any kind of usable output.

There are other issues as well such as number of returns, FOV and signal strength to consider.

The good news is the good sensors are coming way down in price and that will benefit the drone mapping community eventually. What we need now is for the price of survey grade IMU's and INS components like the applanix to come down in cost.
