HelloI am looking at buying/building a hexacopter for farm use. Looking to use a multispectral camera on it (like the parrot sequoia, agrobotix or agrocam).I need at least a 20min flight time.…Continue
"Hi, I like share my mapping experience with RPAs or drones, first you don´t need gimbal, the program you use could correct the minor camera angles. Second, any multicopter is not suitable for long photogrametry areas. You must use a fixed wing…"
"The less overlap and no cloud processing features are quite attractive.
Probably a custom gimbal can't be that expensive. Surprised there isn't one that would fit the camera. Maybe in a few months.
Aglyx seems to be exactly the app for…"
"I hadn't seen the AgroCam units before, probably since it is EU based. They look like modified GoPro H3 clones. It's a good price for a starter NDVI camera...similar to my modified S100 with the Event38 NGB filter. The prices on ag mapping…"
"Slant range and red edge are price about the same . You get higher resolution , less over lap required (which means more acre covered and more images ) , on board processing and the ability to analyze the picture with your laptop vs…"
"keeping track of all the software for analysis is quite a challenge. they are also intertwined like you say. this industry is dynamic.
agribotix has some demonstrations of drone deploy use with a phantom 3 and their camera solutions.
"thank you, good info.
the FireFLY6 looks great, a little expensive for me to start with.
the Ranger EX Quad conversion looks really good. Can you fit both S100 cameras on the Ranger?
Also what area are you able to photograph with your planes…"
"A modified camera won't give you the accuracy or quality that you really want . Good place to start to learn on or if you are on a really strict budget . But i wouldn't bet the farm on it or use it to make decision on . The chip they use…"
"I use the Canon S100 Gimbal and Mount Kit from BirdsEyeView Aerobotics on my FireFLY6 VTOL, Ranger EX QuadPlane, and Tarot MRCs. The gimbal mount is based on the Feiyu Tech Ultra G3 gimbal mount so I can swap planes and cameras. One S100 is for…"
"when slantrange became apart of Drone deploy app library this meant for me that i could use drone deploy as my base software . use slantrange as my camera . Aglytix as my analytical software (in theory) / also apart of drone deploy…"
