Flying 3DR X8 with Pixhawk w/o GPS

Started this discussion. Last reply by Pat Randall Apr 29, 2016. 3 Replies

I have a special application (fly indoors) where GPS will not be available.  The 3DR X8 must detect GPS to arm, can I disable this and how?, Can I just disconnect the GPS.Continue

"Stabilize mode, I need pretty controlled flight.  Thanks for the link looks like what I need.  I plan to develop a program with a raspberry pi to fly a route indoors, the requirements are very simple but I am a bit behind in my programming…"

"The big problem is try to answer: "What is the economic benefit?". If we are capable to answer this question with a number perhaps we could have a business opportunity. Only Airinov (Sensefly) try to answer this question, but only for…"

"With autonomous loading you are now adding a whole new level of headaches and approvals. Not to mention that there are reasons to have human eyes on the mixing and loading portion of the job. One of those being product compatibility. Not all of the…"

"OK many news for me. Thanks for the info ! I never did such application with drones, I just know there some, even DJI came with one last month. I can only imagine how these flying robots could potentially work in a swarm autonomously, even the…"

"Oh, and the biggest current issue in an unsubsidized capitalist system, price. This DPI was at our convention last month. It costs the same roughly $400,000.00 (that's four hundred thousand dollars) as the used Jet Ranger in the background…"

"I believe drones in precision agriculture have their potential but right now we are at an early stage and there needs to be a proper research done before one can say it's true benefits. There are indications that with instant and cheap drone…"

"Having been in the field for a few years now my perspective has changed somewhat. Many folks, including myself, over-estimated the rate of adoption by farmers. I think it can be attributed to a belief that aerial imagery would be a clear benefit in…"

"Good info Pat, I would be curious in what exactly and how (format, platform, email? cloud?) is that the airplane service delivers, when, what the user does with the info, and how does he capture value. "

"The value is the question, there are quite a few companies doing surveys for 5-20$/ acre so there is value in some crops with some farmers.  The market and technology will need to continue to develop. I heard of another service which uses an…"
