"Christian, thanks for your response. I'm quite new at photogrammetry so some of the solutions you mention are not familiar to me. Is there an introductory text or guide that you could recommend for someone like me to get up to speed on the…"

Jason Best replied to Garrick Merrill's discussion Lack of replacement parts for 3DR vehicles
"Garrick, while I don't own a 3DR copter (just the APM and other electronics), the lack of replacement parts or the ease of quickly obtaining replacement parts from other kits has driven me to search out solutions that I can find and make with…"

"Does anyone have any experience, solutions, or suggestions for determining GPS coordinates of images that have been used to create an orthorectified image generated using SFM? In more detail here is what I'd like to do: I've performed a…"

"Ken, I share your frustrations with HK and I try to avoid shipping through their Malaysian carrier when possible because the tracking is particularly bad. The tracking feature for Malaysian Post seems to be a bit fragmented/ununified because you…"

"I realize this is a fairly old thread, but just today I was working on this problem and after I solved it (I think), I found this discussion. Others have already provided a number of good answers and resources but I thought I'd add my own. The…"

Jason Best commented on Guillermo Romero's group Baja Drones Group
"I have a general question about UAV/UAS laws in Mexico, so sorry if this is too off topic for the Baja group. I may have an opportunity to travel to Cohuila with a research team that will be performing botanical inventories. I'd like to try to…"

Jason Best replied to Josh's discussion Photo-mapping with UAV and GOPRO 2
"Not only out of scale, but there are some BIG color shifts as you move from close perspective to distant perspective. I noticed that when launching my quad using a GoPro, the grass seemed a mix of green and brown but as I moved higher the green…"

Jason Best replied to Josh's discussion Photo-mapping with UAV and GOPRO 2
"Josh, you should probably point your camera perpendicular to the plane you intend to image (image capture surface parallel to that plane). So if you are capturing a building, point horizontally, if the landscape, point down. This will allow you to…"

"Graham, thanks for your comments. Your foam copter gives me a whole different approach to consider. I love how compact it can get with the arms folding over the rest of the body. For now I think I'll keep investigating the Al/C frame with more…"

"Thanks for the mention Jason, I abandoned my carbon H frame as it was just too heavy and built my EPP foam H-frame instead (http://diydrones.com/profiles/blogs/epp-foam-folding-h-frame-quad). It is still flying to this day and has flown in at…"
