"Stabilize mode, I need pretty controlled flight. Thanks for the link looks like what I need. I plan to develop a program with a raspberry pi to fly a route indoors, the requirements are very simple but I am a bit behind in my programming and…"
"The value is the question, there are quite a few companies doing surveys for 5-20$/ acre so there is value in some crops with some farmers. The market and technology will need to continue to develop.
I heard of another service which uses an…"
"I believe this is a new tool and finding the best use is going to require input from farmers. I suggest setting up demonstrations of the drone technology and then asking farmers how it can be put to use. Seems like spotting a black grass outbreak…"
"Typically you only need 1 frame each 3 to 5 seconds to cover a field nor a composite image. Using a video will generate alot of additional data to process without any benefit and could result in file sizes which will need special handling. Useing…"

"Thanks for the reply, I agree showing the value up front will be difficult. Along with that is interpretation of the data collected to show the value. I have discussed with many people and the feeling the value is there. Here in the US there seem…"
I was just at a conference in Los Angeles and the secession speakers seemed to be in agreement there was not a outside business opportunity for drone use In agriculture. They invision the farmer having everything in the back of their truck to do…
"I was just at a conference which discussed this topic, NDIV - RGB seems to be what is most useful right now. The two taken at the same time give the farmer some visual information to work with. Other variations are great but no one really knows…"
"I would lean more toward a pressurized container, this way there are not moving parts or need for additional power/weight. Is some land based applications the container has a bladder which separates the pressurize gas from the liquid being…"
"My experience was pretty positive, replacement of a motor. I ordered a new motor, installed and flew for a week and replacement has not arrived. But honestly I ordered new one because I really knew it would take a long time to get the replacement.…"
