"Hi Fred, indeed you can do triggering with the pixfalcon or other (non-aux) px4. Some cameras require PWM signal, some a relay. If your camera requires a relay for signalling, then you'll need the device above (reads PWM signal and closes a…"

"Thanks Hein I wasn't clear. I'm looking to automate the trigger using waypoints via the autopilot's capabilities (http://ardupilot.org/plane/docs/common-camera-shutter-with-servo.html#common-camera-shutter-with-servo). Fred"

"I'm assuming you need a relay function, because pwm out for camera trigger works on any pix*. Perhaps look at something like https://www.readymaderc.com/store/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=505_514&products_id=1946 ? It…"

AUX for camera trigger on smaller FC?

Hello all,I’m looking for a smaller/lighter alternative to the Pixhawk. I need to use ardupilot’s relay-type camera shutter, with a fixed-wing craft, for automated flights with shutter triggered automatically (on the Pixhawk, I’d use the AUX/RC ports).I also need to use Emlid's Reach RTK-GPS.I started to look at Pixracer and PXFmini - I'm trying to find out if there is any possibility of AUX OUT for triggering cameras on either. Does anyone know? Or does anyone have any other FC to…See More

"Hi Chris. Just a note to give you my appreciation for the support you've given to the community - there's been a lot of altruism and business experimentation on your part; lots of scut work and community building... lots of risk taking.…"

"Hello Tersus, Yes, we are interested. We have started doing tests comparing microtopography results generated from UAV data with all-terrain vehicle GPS data. Thanks Fred, fredjean@sympatico.ca"

"Thanks a lot for your quick (!) response. Limited knowledge of lidar; I didn't realize it has that penetration...  700k/s: that would be quite a bit more data to process. : ) = ironic or happily wishful?"

Frederic Jean replied to Randy's discussion Copter-3.3 beta testing
"Shaun: (sorry to the group for an off topic question) why lidar for topography when you can get high resolution 3D from photo images with SFM through software like Agisoft PhotoScan? perhaps a reply by email fredojean-at-gmail.com. Thanks a…"

"I had a similar issue with the proximity of the buzzer to the Pixhawk. Thorsten and Randy identified the problem (I moved the buzzer a few inches). Note that the problem of interference between buzzers and gyroscopes is being studied. See…"
