"Brilliant information and tool, thanks very much. Although my vibration damping method is primitive (blocks of hobbyking orange latex top and bottom of the pixhawk, holding it in slight tension between top and bottom plates) compared to yours…"
"Hi Darrel, will be very interested in how Smart RTK and Reach compare! London is pretty well supplied with base stations. I did try surveying a Reach base station point and then using that to provide the reference for post processing the rover, but…"
"It was using the Reach 3.3 release, I haven't yet tried 3.4. Unfortunately the less than ideal positioning of the ground plane for the Reach antenna relative to the M8N unit causes significant degradation of the M8N performance - not to the point…"
We have been using a Canon S100 running CHDK and KAP script for mapping and modelling using Pix4d for a while, and thought it might be useful to share the results of some testing of the possibility of GCP free mapping using the Canon and Emlid Reach…
"how are your vibrations? I was having a similar problem with an x8 on auto missions, particularly with a bit of wind when passing over tall trees or buildings. Copter would seem to hesitate and lose a metre or two of altitude before recovering and…"
"Hi, if you are using an S100 do you not find the auto time update feature gives you good enough time sync to just use time offset method with an offset of zero? I have found this to be more accurate than tagging using the cam_trig messages. Usually…"
"Thanks very much, it had occurred to me that the IMUs might be differently affected by the setup, I had just thought I might find someone else who had experienced this issue - the difference between flight with both IMU enabled and the just one was…"
