I really enjoyed the mapping and modeling course. It really opened my eyes on the right type of equipment. At this time I do not have the right UAV for doing any mapping. I have Yuneec Typhoon Q500+., and a DIY Quad. Now the DIY does have a pixhawk controller, and 2 axis gimbal with a GOPRO. The DIY can do waypoints. However the camera needs a shutter system that can communicate with the pixhawk. I have the option of modifying my DIY by adding a companion computer "Raspberry PI" to control the shutter. Which I can do for a future project. I would like to get started with mappings sooner. I like how the course went over the various models like the 3DR Solo, DJI Phantom and Inspire. I have first compared the DJI and 3DR. Familiar with 3dr products. I do like additional options of the DJI, like the pictures already being geotagged. I have been looking at the Phantom 3's and cost. I can get a new P3 standard for $499, P3 4K for $599, P3 Advanced $799. Also this doesn't account for the extra's like batteries and such. Would a P3 standard be good for mapping? I did see on the dronedeploy website that the standard is on their supported list. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thank You
