"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…"
