A bit late, but better late than never. Our October trip to Hopland with IGIS and 3DRobotics was great fun, and very informative. We tested the ‘Solo’ UAV with three different cameras: the typical GoPro, NIR GoPro (with post-market monkeying with filters to get IR), and a high res Canon lens.
- 3DR’s flight planning software is ridiculously easy to set up and use.
- 3DR’s new software package can do the mosaicking.
- 3D models from multiple images seem easy to create.
- Still want to put a better scientific camera with more bands on the Solo.
Still, lots of fun, stay tuned for more pics and an evaluation of the collected imagery.
