As you, we are passionate about drones and agricultural applications. At the moment, we have developed a low-cost camera that would let you know about health of plants and crops through NDVI multispectral analysis.  The good news is that we will launch it by a crowdfunding project in Kickstarter. Here there are the main features of uSense camera.

 

To drive our product to the right market we would like to know your comments and thoughts regarding the next questions:

 

  1. Type of uses that you will do it with a camera like that.

 2. What are the features that you will love add it?

 3. How much you will be willing to pay?

 

Thank you for your comments, we appreciate the time and any link that you think could help us as well.

 

If you want to know more, don't hesitate to contact us!

Cheers,

 

uSense Team

Hi Silvio

I used a My Fly Dream flight controller.
I am based in the UK.
I  was involved with RC airships 20 years ago  and have recently returned to it to  develop an update electric powered system that would be practical and affordable for commercial and leisure market, using off the shelf drone components etc.
regards
Martin

@Martin Hill Compliments, your LED is amazing! What flight controller do you use? we're super interested in testing that vehicle with VOLTA 4Gmetry (http://diydrones.com/group/volta) - write me silvio@voltarobots.com and we will arrange something for sure! Once again, it's one of the most interesting projects I've seen here!

If anyone is interested, I'll process some imagery for you using Pix4d. I'm not setting out to be a data processor, but I'm spending a lot of time in the program and just finished setting up a new server for processing our images. 

The weather is crap right now and I'm tired of playing with the same old data sets. If you have some you'd like to share, upload the unedited files to drive/dropbox and PM me the link.

Oops, sorry I meant a Spade, which is a scaled up Z3...to a coincidentally 70" wingspan.
