"Sure guys, by all means, your results can be valuable and are definitely welcome. I am just pointing out what, I think, is a very easy mod to do if you are planning on doing any future tests. Well done either way."

"Hi Andreas, Thanks for raising these points, both of them are valid.It is a good idea to have a separate autopilot with RTK GPS onboard, that would make the results more accurate and comparable. By no means are these tests we did perfect, same way…"

"Such interesting data! Thanks for doing this.  It's telling that by far the worst result was from the biggest Aerospace company on the list, Lockheed Martin (LM Indago). Open source software on cheap hobby airframes beats aerospace…"

Lightware SF11/C Laser Altimeter and [ultra] Bright Sun

Posted on January 7, 2019 at 8:15am 0 Comments

Hi,

In December we had a great chance to test the M600 Pro system with a terrain following module in sunny Peru!
