I finally had enough free time to set up the APM2.5 I bought almost a year ago and install Mission Planner. I've been re-familiarizing myself with the software. I see where to change distance and…Continue
"I recently looked into these after someone mentioned them in the comments of this post. All I could find were the CO2 cartridge for flotation devices. There seem to be manual ones where you pull a cord to activate them, and automatic one with a…"
"I'd like to be able to enter waypoints in UTM and read locations off the map in UTM in order to use with paper maps that are either in UTM or MGRS. It's also easier for me to compute distances mentally, since the units are in meters."
"Speaking of coordinates, is there a way to switch between coordinate systems? As in switching from displaying lat/lon to displaying UTM Eastings and Northings like you would see on a paper map. I found this guide to the conversion process;…"
"Why does Mission Planner use SRTM data? The USGS elevation set with global coverage was GTOPO30 until it was superseded a few years ago by GMTED2010. GMTED2010 has 7.5 arc-second resolution everywhere except the poles, and for the south pole is has…"
I finally had enough free time to set up the APM2.5 I bought almost a year ago and install Mission Planner. I've been re-familiarizing myself with the software. I see where to change distance and speed units in the "Planner" menu, but I do not see an option to change from latitude/longitude degrees to UTM eastings and northings. Is there a way to do this in the program, or has anyone modified their own Mission Planner to do this?See More
"What kind of modifications did you do for the NIR camera? Was it simply a removal of the IR cut filter, or was the Bayer filter removed too? If the Bayer filter is still attached, which pixels do you use for NIR?"
"Ive been thinking about the same issue as well. Id like to capture images in VNIR in order to calculate NDVI and other metrics. Most of the available cameras are visible spectrum only and have a Bayer filter (2 green: 1 red: 1 blue) and an IR…"
