Not exactly a DIY post but this is a great video by Trimble demonstrating waypoints for an Agriculture/NDVI or Survey application showing off their UX5 flying wing.

Great Video, I like that

Could similiar videos be produced for different scenarios for ArduPlane and ArduCopter!

 I would find this very helpful if I were a first time user to this project (e.g. maximum cross-winds), take-off distances for planes, default take off altitudes for auto take off with copters, etc. :)

The intent of this video by Trimble is to be an introduction to Farmers who otherwise may be unaware how these work. It would be nice if someone used this as an example to make an ArduPlane/ArduCopter version, Trimble has their own propriety autopilot so it won't be coming from them.

No reason one of the folks producing turnkey solutions for AG could not produce a video. You would need to lock down an airframe design as they have. You could'nt cater for all airframes and peoples builds in one video.

Technically this video is a remake of their survey department version shown here which is a year old.

I’m considering different options to buy a fixed wing drone; people talk a lot about Trimble but I saw Lehmann Aviation LA300 who seem very good for the sames capabilities and a much lower price ; is someone knows about Lehmann Aviation aircrafts? what do you think?

Thanks for yours answers
