Hi, everyone, in fact I am quite new in drone area, so I wanna ask if I need to equip a drone with a LiDAR for altitude holding and even auto-guide. What do you think of this LiDAR. Does it count? I need some advice. Here is the link in Robotshop.
All right. Hope they can solve the problem soon.
And I am curious about the test of TFmini, the blind area of TFmini is 30cm, that is actually right. Have you set it in a drone? Or what do you use it for? Beyond the 30cm, does it work well?
And thank you for your advice.

The Lw20 has a waterproof enclosure so it is not possible to solder wires to serial output , you have to send back the unit to a lightware assistance center.
I did just a short test with the TF-mini , I do not like the fact that under 30 cm , where the sensor is not supposed to work, the manufacturer call it "blind area" , the reading jump from 30 cm to 1,5 meters.
So do not forget to set the right parameter in range finder parameters.
