Hello,I'm looking to map eel-grass with my UAS, but need to be able to capture certain wavelengths to differentiate between it and other flora. I know RGB camera would likely be best, but aren't they expensive and best used in a stationary…
I want to put my camera with lens point through a cut-out in the bottom of UAS, but I want to add a protective slide hatch. How would I set this up to trigger it with transmitter or even ground station?
"My initial thought is to mount the camera on the bottom of the UAS so the lens is facing down, but I feel this could lead to damage upon landing. I see other drones with a forward facing lens, but think this would not be good for mapping because…"
I have a crude beginner model with a mini camera and no current GPS, but I need to step up my UAS for my undergrad research. I like all the bells and whistle of the 3D R aero and hope to have something with 3D telemetry and autopilot. I…"
Hello,Anyone one know what a decent photo-mapping software might be? I'm not looking to spend a fortune but would like to create a map by overlaying my photos; it can be 2D or 3D. Ensomosaic and APS look great, but I believe they are a pretty…
"I'm looking to use APM with GPS and 3d telemetry (from 3D robotics) so I can track and record flight coordinates with mission planner or APM planner. If there is a way to sync this setup with the go pro that would be great, but I was likely going…"
"Would this UAV be easy to fly for a beginner? I'm looking to get into aerial mapping for research purposes but have just begun flying. I'm looking to get the fully loaded model with autopilot, but I'd like to be able to fly it manually too. I…"
I'm new to the UAV scence, but fell upon it as part of my current undergrad research and I'm hooked. I still have so much to learn, but I'm excited for the future of UAV and the implications for research purposes (ecological and…"
Hello Everyone,I am new to the UAV scene and have some questions about photo-mapping. I'm looking to use a GOPRO on a fixed wing UAV to do a research project. I want to take pictures, Geo-tag them, and overlay them into a map (2D or 3D). What is…
