Eric Coronel commented on Greg Crutsinger's blog post Parrot announces Disco is available in September
"I heard that the camera's maximum angle looking down is 80° so not full nadir, but I wonder if it can still be used for mapping. Can anyone confirm?"

"I've worked with lots of US farmers and follow enough farmers on Twitter that collectively they probably own over 50,000 acres in the US Midwest. Nobody is using drones for anything more than glamour shots of their planting/harvesting/spraying appli…"

Eric Coronel commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Simulation of 8 lb drone being ingested by a jet engine

Eric Coronel replied to Joby Dorr's discussion IRIS+ blocks canon s100 GPS? in IRIS
"It won't interfere, but the GPS tagging by the Canon S100 hasn't been as good as what I can do with Mission Planner and the flight logs. Also, the camera has to be turned on for at least 5 minutes before it acquires a GPS signal."
