1 pointThank you Chase. At some of my sites, I am flying in relatively high winds, so am using the M200. I am in the process of gathering and analyzing data and am pretty confident that the workflow I have developed will be helpful for managing water leaks. The DJI Pilot software has its issues, but with time I think better options will be available.
1 pointIt is but I would not rely on the barometer that's in the flight controller. You need a more accurate range finder at low altitudes. http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-rangefinder-landingpage.html I've used an ultrasonic one as it was the most economical http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-rangefinder-maxbotix-analog.html but if I were to add one these days I would try out one of these http://ardupilot.org/copter/docs/common-teraranger-one-rangefinder.html I'm currently building a fixed wing drone and a rangefinder is essential for antonymous landing so will likely use one of those although they are that cheap.
1 pointHello to all! I'm looking forward to learning as much as I can about the drone industry, and hoping to become a part of that industry someday using drones creatively in a unique business model. To say I'm starting on the ground would be an understatement, but I'm motivated and determined to learn as much as I can. Thanks for being here!
