Marc Dornan commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Comparing Precision of Autopilots for Survey Missions - DJI Naza-M V2
"Interesting how poorly the Naza M V2 performed. We are all waiting to see how Pixhawk running Arducopter compares to the Phantom 4."

Comparing Precision of Autopilots for Survey Missions - DJI Naza-M V2

This is the second instalment in a series in which we test the precision of different drones and autopilots by flying them on a standard photogrammetry mission created in UgCS. Last week we published a test of DJI Phantom 4 where we tested the precision of this drone on our photogrammetry route. In this week’s video we review…See More

Alexey Dobrovolskiy commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Comparing Precision of Autopilots for Survey Missions - DJI Phantom 4
"Phantom 4 is much better than Naza. We already did that test and were surprised by results... We will test almost all our fleet, we have in operational condition at the moment: - Mikrokopter Quadro XL- Microdrones MD4-200- Kestrel Indago  - 3DR…"

"Well a Phantom 4 must be better than a Naza M V2. How about a Pixhawk 1/2 with a high quality M8 GPS and latest Arducopter?"

Comparing Precision of Autopilots for Survey Missions - DJI Phantom 4

Here at SPH Engineering we have a fleet of various drones we use for diverse research and development projects as well as testing new releases of UgCS.When it comes to using drones for land surveying, mapping or 3D reconstructions, flight precision plays an important role. This is why we decided to test the precision of different drones to see how well they compare to one another. For that we prepared a short photogrammetry mission in UgCS to see how well does the actual flight trajectory…See More

Alexey Dobrovolskiy commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Universal Adapter for DJI Gimbals
"Hi Greg, you are absolutely right. DJI gimbal also needs information about aircraft attitude. Now we are experimenting where to get this information. We have only two variants - from autopilot or from IMU inside of adaptor.It seems that we will use…"

Greg commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Universal Adapter for DJI Gimbals
"Hi, Gimbals often get information from the autopilot to aid with the stabilization process. Do you take this information as well? If not, how does the gimbal perform without it as compared to when it does have it? I think I'm talking about a…"

"That is brilliant! Pity that one should go to these extremes to get a decent camera on your drone.. What is the weight of the adapter?"

"Rob, will see... I can't predict what they will do. I would like not to discuss this topic here... Regarding tech questions. - price. We are talking with potential OEM producers - we are primarily software house and don't want to dive to…"

"Alexey, DJI might want to sue to stop you producing that.  Reason is, DJI is killing it the UAV industry, in large part, because of their excellent camera systems.Ardupilot is easily a match for DJI's flight controls.  Far superior in…"

Gary McCray commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Universal Adapter for DJI Gimbals
"Lawsuit is an interesting point, the whole multicopter / drone venture has so far been driven by open source, open hardware development, which is why it has moved so fast, but if it follows the PC revolution it mimics, that will probably change…"

Marc Dornan commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Universal Adapter for DJI Gimbals
"While I doubt they will sue you (who knows, I may be wrong) but DJI seem to have no enthusiasm for anyone using their gimbals with anything other than their vehicles. What does your device cost as a standalone unit. I am considering one. Also what…"

Alexey Dobrovolskiy commented on Kristaps Brass's blog post Universal Adapter for DJI Gimbals
"For what reason? I'm engineer, not a lawer... but if somebody will tell us that we breach any law - we will stop immediately. We do not copy or steal DJI cameras - we designed additional product. From other side we created additional sales…"
