Hi, very nice.

I have a technical question:

How are you syncing Sony Rx0 shutter with GPS timestamp?

If you are going for centimeter accuracy you would need an accurate shutter mark

This is a very nice looking system. Well done. 

Please do tell about camera integration. Are you capturing the shutter sync signal?

I have ordered the Dronee and I'm expecting delivery this week,  I will report back on how I get on with the new plane and Sony Rx0!

Hi Marc Dornan 

We are triggering the camera with the wifi module inside drone, so we do not capture shutter sync signal,

Meanwhile, we detect unsuccessful triggering (in case it happens) and use it in geotagging.

Hi vova reznik 

Dronee Plane triggers the camera with wifi,  as if triggering takes ~10ms in average, you get ~10cm  deflection.

Meanwhile we also support pin triggering in parallel to wifi triggering for custom cameras.

vova reznik  what cm accuracy do you need ?

PS:Sony RX0 has 3ms-25ms ping time 2way, which makes ~6ms 1way
