  1. Hey everyone, I’ve been flying dji drones for a long time, but I thought it was time to upgrade in order to carry my nicer DSLR cameras for my photo/video stuff. I was gifted an old Cinestar 8 with the mikrokopter electronics stack. I’m new to heavy lifters. I understand it’s going to need a lot of tuning, but I’m having some issues with it. I’ve gotten pretty comfortable flying manual but this is obviously not ideal on the job, so I’m trying to get the altitude and gps modes to be more reliable. I’ve calibrated the compass and gps, yet it has the tendency to drift around quite a bit, ev
  2. At mRobotics our commitment continues with the entire research, development and integration community. From San Diego California we design and manufacture the necessary hardware to build platforms and solutions based on Ardupilot and PX4. And now we show you the next high-tech GPS that has build-in CAN, which includes many and special improvements to achieve maximum accuracy in positioning and guidance for safe navigation. One of them is that we have incorporated the RM3100 , a new Geomagnetic Sensor. Like a pair of glasses, the RM3100 Geomagnetic Sensor enables you to see magnetic fields
  3. GPS tracker devices, are they any good? Flyaways are uncommon, but they do happen. Should i get one for myself? What are your thoughts?
  4. Hi, We are using Mapir2 NDVI camera for data collection. Currently we are using Columbus GPS V990 v2 for geotagging. We also have the trigger cable for Mapir 2 camera but not able to use it with the current GPS. Is there any way to use the Advanced GPS which is being used to trigger Mapir 3 camera with my current Mapir 2 camera ? The official message from Mapir is that their new GPS Trigger isnt compatible for Survey 2 camera. Is there any way to make both these work together. I have also tried searching results on using the instruments I have to accomplish but failed.Went through fo
  5. Hey guys, I'm doing some research. I'm curious to know your thoughts on drones and GPS signal quality. Do you tend to have any rules of thumb for your own operations? I'm wondering if you look at the points below before you fly. Have you found from personal experience they make a difference? • Number of visible satellites • Dillution of Precision (GDOP, HDOP, VDOP, TDOP, or combination) • Kp Index Also are there any other GPS factors you consider before flight? Any help would be much appreciated :) Thanks, Richard
  6. Greetings All Photographers: I continue to update and refine a Windows application I created (now 10 years ago) which stamps where, when and other location metadata onto geotagged photos. I am hoping that some photographers here will try out my application (GPStamper) and furnish me feedback and suggestions as to how it could be optimized/customized for aerial photos from a variety of drones. Particular (i.e. client) application needs are also being solicited. For anyone interested in assisting me I would offer up an extended trial version of GPStamper, so that extra time would be afforde
  7. Good afternoon! Our campus has a new semester of GIS courses in the LA Region starting August 21. GIS provides many analysis and interactive functions for use of the drone imagery captured using the drones. This semester includes two Introduction to GIS (GIS 120) courses including a hybrid (once a week Friday)., an Intermediate GIS(220) located off site at the LA County Department of Public Works (DPW) at 900 S Fremont Ave, Alhambra and a Cartography (GIS 221) course. (course descriptions http://riohondo.isteaching.com/class-descriptions). Select courses transferable to CSU & Claremon
  8. Just found this link. At the bottom right of the screen is a chart that details the KP Index for each day by the hour. A KP Index of less than five is not bad, but the lower the number the less interference you should experience for GPS reception (due to solar events). http://www.swpc.noaa.gov/communities/aviation-community-dashboard
  9. Hi, While going through your Mapping and 3D modelling training (3DR Tower App Demo), noted something about "geotag is a little bit hit and miss..." at minutes 3:47 of the video. I don't quite understand what this means as I believe if the GPS HDOP is of good quality, then position will be good and geotagging should never be a problem, i.e. not a hit-and-miss. Photogrammetry - as I understand it relies on good positioning for mosaicing purposes. If we could not rely on geotagged coordinates, how could we overcome problems with image-stitching or mosaicing at processing stage? Indeed drone
  10. Hi, After reviewing the list of best budget/starter drones from this site I have, for my first UAV, decided on the Traxxas La Trax Aiias. The main reason being that I suspect it might need to take a few wipouts, dings, bangs edirectytc whilst I find the skills to pilot it effectively and safely. Whilst the immediacy of the out of the box excitement and fly of a drone will be met, I also want to start building and coding my own drones so that I truly get to grips with what it takes to get a UAV into the sky, keep it there and control it. To that end I would like to ask if there is
  11. I have updated my Solo . 1. mRo GPS u-Blox Neo-M8N (Release 2) http://store.mrobotics.io/category-s/109.htm 2. Solo GPS Shield V2 First the GPS was made for the Solo it was an easy, remove the original and connect the version 2. There are others out there that would work, however it requires soldering new connectors. The GPS from mrobotics should have been in the production release of Solo. Also the GPS shield Ver 2 is icing on the cake. After I upgraded and powered up I had lock in a few seconds with 7-9 SATS. That was while I was indoors in my office. Cannot wait to s
