Hey All,Figured I'd let everyone know the Pixhawk Basic Kit is on backorder on the 3DR website. They never actually tell you until you've completed the purchase and finally submitted a help request to customer support. I've been waiting on a kit…
Do you have a preference between a multirotor or fixed-wing? I'm not able to offer any advice on the fixed-wing side of things. You need to look for high endurance, sturdy systems using the Pixhawk as the flight controller (easy to set…"
So...I've had a couple not-so-fun instances with both an APM 2.6 and a Pixhawk where it seems to invert the horizon and crater dramatically into the ground at full throttle. I've attached the log from the Pixhawk flight. I have a sneaking suspicion…
"I'm in Virginia. The systems I use are custom builds, but I have been helping Joey from FlyAmericaFPV with some Pixhawk builds in the Turbo Ace Matrix systems. These are well-built systems, and I think they would work well for you. They are more…"
We work closely with local SWCD and NRCS staff and have an idea on what you are looking for. Field inspections are going to run similar to our crop scouting (I own an agronomic consulting company). We use quadcopters so that we can sit…"
"Good point. A lot of care needs to be taken using 433 primarily on Tx/Rx selection. There are some high dollar systems on the market that tend to be "RF dirty." I've heard stories of said systems spoiling up motors because of what was just said. I…"
"Good intro into VR technology and some of the tools/methods that are commonly used. Good point about VRT not being the silver bullet in producing better yields, but its definitely going to increase our efficiency.
At the onset of drone adoption in…"
NDVI (and derivatives) can be a very useful tool in precision ag. I currently use an index based on the visible spectrum that works well with my precision ag consulting. But using the visible spectrum has its limitations (able to identify…"
