It’s been a while since I did an update as I’ve been very busy getting a new plane up and running for a client that is interested in using it as an Aerial Photography platform.
I strapped a Canon SX 260H into it and did my first trial at the PRF club this afternoon. I was pleasantly surprised by the results.
The resulting orthophoto and DEM came out quite well taking into account that I am still waiting for the autopilot that will make taking the photos in good organized lanes MUCH easier.
