"I think it's still being sold in Asia. The inventory for digital cameras tends to stick around for a while even after the camera is dropped, in my experience."

"Dennis, The type of imagery they're talking about is likely thermal IR rather than near infrared (NIR). I know some people who have used it for archaeological purposes but I'm not sure if compacted soil would stay compacted for 100+ years.…"

[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.]

Dear, good afternoon.

I bought the Skywalker E382 and I need your help.
Read all information 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.


Juliano Costa.
