"Also - after calibration should I be able to check the aircraft with a compass to verify that the direction it is setting is the actual direction it is pointing on the mission planner?"

"Guys I need clarification here. So I am setting up a plane with a Pixhawk a and external compass. So I select the "pixhawk/Px4?" Seams strange there is a photo of an external 3DR compass but that is not what we should select?"

"Hi Bert,   I think I can help with this. And you are correct it is fairly straight forward.   When you choose the prams you wish to load, and you get your box that pops up showing "Note 26.10.2011 21:40:00…"

"FWIW, you can run Mission Planner under Linux using Mono.  It's not perfect and still has some problems but for most activities it works the same as it does under Windows."

Hi Bret,
At the moment we are still flight testing and currently carrying 15kg in the nose, we are planning to expanded that out to 30kg along the payload compartment. At this early stage her flight speed envelope is 45 to 120 kts.

Yes we will be selling our UAV's. Our first prototype as seen in the pics has foam core wings with balsa and glass covering. The product units will be full composite/honey comb hollow core construction which we are having CNC molds manufactured for. I am not fully sure how you can see other question because I haven't been on this forum for very long. If you have other question I don't mind answering them.

Jake - also, thank you for the introduction to Chelsea Moon's music.  I was not familiar with her or her work.  However I am very familiar with the Franz family.  They stayed at our house when they played at a church her in town several years ago.  

What camera did you use in you video?  Was it shot all with the same camera?

Hi Bret,

I am sorry but I cannot talk too much about our software at this point.  There is lots of competition in this area recently and we cannot show our hand just yet.  I can say that we are doing far more than photo stitching.  We are doing complete post processing from close range raw imagery to final products of fully classified photogrammetric point clouds (not point surfaces that most companies are producing), DEM/DSM, true orthophotography, and data analysis for various resource sectors.  We have been recognized by the Canadian Research Council of Canada for our contribution to UAV development and post processing.  We will be debuting our results at the end of May and I cannot say too much more prior to that.

We are always looking for sample data from various areas so if you have some imagery feel free to send it to me and my office can take a look at it and see what we can create for you.  Just for fun.

Thanks for the interest stay in contact and I would be happy to keep you updated.

Cheers John
