"The script also plays with exposure to maximize the settings you want (like shutter speed).. but realistically you can just use the Tv mode and get the same result 99% of the time."

NDVI Post-Processing in Fiji

Posted on February 24, 2014 at 1:14pm 14 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…

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.
