CONSERVATION DRONES OVER BARRO COLORADO ISLAND, PANAMA

Lian Pin Koh (ConservationDrones.org) and Brenden Duffy (FlightRiot.com) went on a trip to Barro Colorado Island, Panama, upon the invitation of Dr. Helene Muller-Landau from the Smithsonian Tropical Research Institute. We brought two units of 3DRobotics-based UAVs to the field station and trained a team of researchers on their use for ecological research.

Question- in the close up of the women putting the wings on, the compass looks like it is mounted 90 degrees to the right instead of forward.  Is there a setting for that or was I seeing something wrong?

@Adam, yes you can set compass AND APM orientation using MP.
