Jeff Taylor replied to Jakob Sievers's discussion Fixed wing drone for thermal mapping of a large area
"Jakob, How spatially accurate do you need your surface temp readings to be? The reason I ask is that I think you will have a hard time stitching together thermal images from a drone especially over water. Stitching is usually done visually using…"

Jeff Taylor commented on Jeff Taylor's blog post New, Higher Performance NDVI Converted Cameras
"Definitely not true that it's useless. It does decrease the accuracy of the mosaic but you'll find that the error imposed is usually not enough to significantly misalign from Google Earth tiles. If you need survey-grade accuracy then…"

"Jeff thanks for the quick reply. That clarifies that sx260 is not an option. I've read that GPS lag in s100 is over a second which makes it useless. Is that true? Having Images gps tagged by camera is very practical but if lag is too high it…"

Jeff Taylor commented on Jeff Taylor's blog post New, Higher Performance NDVI Converted Cameras
"@Bortek The S100 and S110 have noticeably better image quality. Between the two, you'll find the S100 is hard to buy as it's been discontinued. If you can get one, it has a built in GPS which makes post-processing very easy on any…"

"What prop are you using? 12x12 and 12x10 exacerbate the spiral slipstream issue iskess mentioned. A simple fix is to get a prop with smaller advance ratio and add some mechanical offset to your rudder to the left. Also turn down throttle slew, the…"

APM to CHDK Camera Link Tutorial

[Edit 12/31/2015: Note for Pixhawk users that Canon cameras require a 5V pulse to trigger so a voltage step-up from Pixhawk's 3.3V output is required. See compatible cable and link to more instructions here.]This tutorial will show you how to get your CHDK-enabled camera connected to your ArduPilot Mega (APM) without buying any extra hardware or decoding PWM outputs. You might want to make this…See More

Jeff Taylor replied to Quan Le's discussion Drone topographical survey for agriculture in Africa - What have we done wrong? Business opportunity in the group Agricultural UAVs
"The utility is an exe which takes as inputs the .tlog from a pixhawk powered vehicle and exports a csv with image names corresponding to GPS tags (lat, lon, alt). It's a PC application which would be run after the flight only."

Jeff Taylor replied to Quan Le's discussion Drone topographical survey for agriculture in Africa - What have we done wrong? Business opportunity in the group Agricultural UAVs
"Sorry if that was misleading, we do of course offer geotagging by default! Most cameras can't be purchased with GPS onboard nowadays, so we tie in the cameras to Pixhawk instead, and we built this utility to add the…"

Jeff Taylor replied to Quan Le's discussion Drone topographical survey for agriculture in Africa - What have we done wrong? Business opportunity in the group Agricultural UAVs
"Quan, My first guess based on the high errors in the geotags is that the geotags are skipping pictures or pictures are skipping tags somewhere in the middle. I can help take a look at that if you upload the pictures and raw .tlog to DDMS at…"

New NGB Filters and Higher Resolution Camera at Event 38

Posted on August 21, 2014 at 12:09pm 20 Comments

We've been hard at work improving our popular NGB filter glass over the summer and the latest design is finally in! This design cuts off higher wavelength NIR light around 770nm. That reduces the amount of light crossing over to the Green and Blue channels which are also sensitive to NIR light,…

Dear, good afternoon.

I bought the Skywalker E382 and I need your help.
Read all information http://event38.wikispaces.com page and follow the manual configuration.
I'm having trouble configuring Dragonlink 2 Long Range (433Mhz) UHF Tx and Rx System and RFD900 Radio Modems (900Mhz).
My setup for Skywalker E382 is as follows:
Skywalker E382 168mm.
ArduPilot Mega 2.6 Set (external compass).
Turnigy 9X 9cH (2.4Ghz) Transmitter w / Module & 8ch Receiver (Mode 2) (v2 Firmware).
My question is:
Do you have a manual, tutorial or video of equipment configuration? The frequencies of the equipment are correct? Do you have manual, tutorial or video installation of radio base station ground? Which types of antennas you use for radio base station ground?

Thank you.

Sincerely

Juliano Costa.
