Hi, quick question. The Canon S100 is capable of 2 pictures per second just by pressing the shutter button. So when running 3DR's CHDK script, why is this rate crippled at one picture every 2…Continue
Hi there, I had a thought about a potential way to implement VTOL in arducopter and I thought I'd open it for discussion so you guys can tell me how off base I am.Some background just in case: I'm…Continue
While we're waiting for this T3 to be judged, I thought I'd do a quick rundown of the entries. If you haven't seen them already, here you are! I think everyone did great, I'm seriously impressed by the quality of work which came out of this T3.…Continue
Warning: Lots of hi res images!
This is my entry for T3! I intern in an NSF funded lab which uses multicopters for ecological research. More specifically: we do photogrammetry in Agisoft Photoscan to produce LiDAR like point clouds. We're based out of UMBC, which is the campus shown above. I'd already been thinking about doing a full campus…Continue
June 2nd, 2013 was a good field day for photo collection! I flew eight flights with Crimson, the Arducopter hexa with Mikrokopter motors and frame. Five flights were for the "matrix", this summer's big project of comparing the effect of different flight conditions on 3D scan quality. This condition was diffuse lighting, high wind, flying 40m above the canopy, with 50% side…Continue
