    Hi all, I'm not really interested in flying in real time. While I like flying, this is a need based problem. What we need is a drone that can survey the planted fields and do an imaging pass (NDVI) to let us know where we need to direct attention. We have some autonomous ground based vehicles...

    Mini OSD System w/GPS & Teleporter 3

    Bit of a short question, but I'm confused about GPS accuracy that companies state on their websites or manuals. Like the DJI Naza Lite with GPS that I got in today, they state 2.5 meters accuracy horizontally, and 800 centimeters vertically. (Metric system! :p ) But... Do they mean total or...
