"That's right, its resolution is 10ms at best. I have Ch. 7 of my transmitter coupled to the relay switch of the APM though. This way when you apply a high pwm value, the relay pin remains set. I used that previously to turn off the camera…"

"Ultrojo, get usb power reads the length of the pulse, so if you're sending it PWM it will potentially read the same value every time. The way to do it would be to use digital pulses of varying length instead of PWM. Last I checked though, CHDK…"

"I've seen when the camera is unable to focus that it might not finish taking the picture. Are you sure it's actually completing the focus routine or might it just be trying to focus and failing?"

" This is their spectral graph without a notch filter: This is with the notch filter: Doesn't look like a massive amount of difference except the price of importing it to the UK makes the maxmax more expensive."

Jeff Taylor commented on Jeff Taylor's blog post New, Higher Performance NDVI Converted Cameras
"James, it is definitely a different filter as ours was custom made and I'm sure theirs was as well. There is a slight difference you can see visually between the two images (on theirs, vegetation looks more orange) but I'm not sure exactly…"

James Dunthorne commented on Jeff Taylor's blog post New, Higher Performance NDVI Converted Cameras
"Great work, it would be interesting to see how this compares to the maxmax conversion. I would have thought they were very similar although the filter may be different as it would also likely be a custom build.  Do you have any direct…"

NDVI Post-Processing in Fiji

Posted on February 24, 2014 at 1:14pm 11 Comments

A lot of people have been asking me how we post-process imagery coming from one of our, or any other company's, NGB converted cameras. There's a very easy way to run this processing thanks to Fiji and the Photo Monitoring plugin by Ned Horning. I've just written up a quick getting started guide to this…

Late last year we released our first version NDVI converted cameras using Schott BG3 filters. Using those filters we were able to generate pseudo NDVI images with a single camera, building off the work of the Public Lab project. After working…

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.
