I'm new to the forum, and I had a brilliant idea this morning, why not use a UAV to track the movements or animals or to track problematic animals like feral hogs. I have access to nightvision, thermal, and a wide range of optics, but i've never though about using a uav before, in fact, i didn't know civilians could get them. so below I'm going to list the criteria,
a UAV that can be controlled in the field
real time video that could be viewed in the field
gps so movements could be tracked, or teams directed to the area with problematic animals for removial.
maxium range and elevation capable
easy to use so i can get rolling quickly.
what would you guys recommend? I keep thinking about a blimp type set up for extended flight time and ease of use.
