Hey again all, just a quick one. Just come back from a very quick aerial shoot for a local real estate firm, we covered 10 different properties from the air with our SteadiDrone H6X, such a pleasure working with it, fast and effective.
On the SteadiDrone H6X we're running the T-Motor 4008 and a single 5000mah 4S, which gives us very good flight times, but still light and nimble, the 380kv motors spin so slow withthe 14" props, it's ultra quiet and efficient, we were shooting in a residential aera (with a lot of older people) so the losw noise and small size really is very un-obtrusive and hardly noticable. Shooting the Canon S100 + CHDK it's simply a matter of, out the boot, plug in, wait for GPS lock, up, loiter, snap snap snap, land, next property!
Having loiter in manual alt mode is great as once you're up you can stick on the goggles, frame the shot and lift or drop the drone depending on what you need to capture, could not be easier. Now again, yes the SteadiDrone is a really nice piece of kit (comes full RTF with EVERYTHING!) (yes I own SteadiDrone) but as I've said many times before, APM is our backbone, and from the very begining when we started out, I still, to this day do not undrstand why people are using anything else, it's affordable, simple, easy to use and get into the setting code (try YS-X6!!! omw..) It's VERY reliable and handles slow spinning motors with big props (try this on DJI..) The code has come of age and I still think it's by far the best FC out there, thanks again to all the devs who make this wonderful piece of hardware/software work.
Here's a quick shot of the SteadiDrone H6X (more info at http://www.steadidrone.com/index.php?option=com_virtuemart&view=productdetails&virtuemart_product_id=2&virtuemart_category_id=1)
and also two shots from the shoot this morning.
