Aerial Pics (Proof of concept)

I have just ordered my first ArduPilot.

Attached are my 'proof of concept' pictures.

The plane is a 'foamie' home design (also rigged with lights for night flights).

121 pics were taken with an iPhone at 2 sec intervals at an estimated height of 25m; auto stitched with Photoshop and rectified with 6 control points from Hypertiles.

I just need ArduPilot to control the flight path. 

I now need to find a plane that will carry 2 cameras (Colour and NIR).

I have attached a Google Earth KML if you want to see the site. Use HyperTiles to see a better view.

The eventual aim is to fly crops for farmers.

    'Only in America'.

    I am just wondering what the implications are for the rest of us??

    Very nice, thank your for sharing! I will be following your project with great interest, as I'm also very interested in aerial photography/imaging. I was just thinking yesterday that I haven't seen much in the way of photo stitching and how nice it would be to see someone generate some imagery, even if it is not APM driven. And lo! Here it is! Thank you.

     

    Do you have an NIR unit picked out?
