About Me:
Graduate student in agronomy
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
UAVs are a great tool to collect visual imagery that yields information not visible from the ground level. I am mostly interested in efficient mission plans that gather the most representative pictures in the least amount of time.

Thanks Eric for viewing our post and your suggestion.

We are always looking for improvements.

Does your recommendation mean that our Y6's would be flying backwards on every other row of survey mission?

Also, what command and/or parameters would we change to go as you suggest in MP?

Even though our camera's are mounted in brush less gimbals with face down stabilization controls, how might this improve the picture taking in a survey mission.

I don't doubt your suggestion, I'm just trying understand technically before testing the ideal.

So far, the 16 megabit images are being all perfectly stitched in a single panorama composite in the first pass, with a very high stitch quality rating.  We have been very pleased not to have to manually play around with tweaking the images to get good stitches.  Of course, we use a very great product, AutoPano Giga from Kolor.com.

In any case, we welcome and try to learn from everyone's recommendations.

So I would welcome a better understand of your suggestion.

Thanks very much,

Mike Governale
