"@ JB - No doubt you'll provide further info about your work when ready.  As you say, it sounds very good for environmental sensing, specifically wildlife monitoring."

"@ lianpinkoh Well in that case it was rather the Disco that let you down a bit! I suppose the wifi video lag didn't help either. One needs to get used to the landing button, I've been experimenting with adjusting the glideslope and…"

"@JB, we did try to have that boat go >15 knots. The captain chuckled and said 10 knots for his old lady if we are lucky :) I think the endurance of this bird makes it very attractive as an aerial scouting tool that can follow the boat for at…"

"Very cool! What's very interesting is the airspeed sensor, for the static port they just keep it unattached and use the air pressure inside the CHUCK for static comparison.  How effective is this compared to having an external static…"

"Nice try! ;-) Disco's are easy to fly, but landing on the back of a boat with a fixed wing is very hard! Next time get the boat captain to go faster then you will have more time for your approach. You're coming in pretty hot! Otherwise…"

Parrot Disco for whale and dolphin survey (and a teardown)

My team and I used the Parrot Disco for a few days of whale and dolphin surveys off the coast of Timor Leste where a cetacean migration event has been going on for the past few weeks. This effort is a partnership between the Unmanned Research Aircraft Facility, a University of Adelaide unit I lead and Conservation International, and supported by Parrot's Educational Program and a…See More

"@Randy, here's an update on my tracker. All the mechanics and electronics are set up (using a bridging 3DR radio to GCS). I'm having trouble with the tuning. Any chance you are willing to share your parameters? Video of tracker "

And yet these same species are the most threatened due…
