Good work all.

(maybe add a table to your kit for the computer)

That's definitely mission planner on the screen so I guess it's an ArduPlane equipped plane.  Great use of UAVs!  Also at $4k per plane (at least I think that's what they said in the video) that's a very reasonable price I think.

Hi Randy, yes, they are Skywalkers with APMs. All electronics have been coated with CorrosionX for use in the open ocean. We'll see how long they last!

Great to see another positive application by Conservation Drones.  Have you considered switching to a tablet for the ground station?

Im actually headed there this weekend! I will have to keep an eye on the sky... 

Nice work!

Excellent work. Bravo Conservation Drones! I've flown KAP mapping sessions in Belize and would like to use these techniques too. See:
