"The above model is very nice even at as low as 80k triangles. I really like Agisoft, its workflow is easy and with the right GPU it is MUCH faster than the competition.  I'm playing with some maps in Unreal Engine 4 (really good) + Oculus…"

João Victor Fortes Carvalho replied to ALK's discussion Mission Planner Geotag Tool info?
"I am also in the same boat, it´s better for us to use .log file as it´s being recorded directly to the board and does not suffer the problem of losing connection as telemetry sometimes does due to many things."

UAVOZ replied to ALK's discussion X8 Wing for Mapping?
"IMO Flying wing has low stability. It is harder to modify with gimbal unless you have very good control board. For mapping will need some degree of accuracy."

Michael Hadsell replied to ALK's discussion X8 Wing for Mapping?
"Not really--we have 2 for that purpose and although we made it work--it would not be my first choice. The wings are very flexible and that makes for a LOT of blurred pictures. Windy days--FORGET IT!!"
