Hi there,I wonder if it is possible to set a custom value for the orientation offset between the APM and the external compass. Now there are some fixed values for the roll (90-180-270 degrees), but I…Continue

UAV mapping in Ethiopia - Looking for Malaria Hotspots

During our latest mission, we went to Ethiopia to map malaria hotspots. The idea is to look for small water bodies which in the dry season are a source for mosquitos and their larvae. From these hotspots, the mosquitos spread in the rainy season all over the region, and if infected by the malaria parasite can do a lot of damage to the local community. I have done several demonstration flights and trained local students on how to operate the UAV.  During one mission we can map an area of 2km2 on…See More
