GeoBlu commented on Scott Fuller's blog post Testing quad copter with APM, Mission Planner and a Saitek Joystick
"TESTING? In a parking garage with vehicles around to damage?  They call that in Cali or anywhere else - stupidity!

GeoBlu replied to UAVOZ's discussion calculation of waypoints for aerial survey
"MP planner has a nice tool to calculate your coverage based on lens and digital back.
you can fly in stable mode and take a photo at 100' above ground and measure the image size.

once you have the image size, you can develop your waypoint…"

I must be a complete idiot about getting parameters set for my quad. I have done everything I can think of on setting and still I get no positive results. I have a DJI FW450 quad and having set all parameters the way I think is correct is resulting…
