Hey guys.

Im currently setting up a camera ship for land surveying.
Ship that i have now is the Vario Benzine Trainer with the zenoah g230.

Cam mount is the Funtech A826 Panning mount.
Camera itself is the Nikon D300 calibrated by trimble.
May intergrate FPV system for vertical point location.
What onboard triggering system for the D300 should i use? Was considering the GentLed Focus Pro.

As for electronics, im wondering what would be easy and reliable to use.
Need a stable platform in which i can take vertical detailed photos.
Height would be about 50m, and must be constant for all photos taken for effective software stitching.

Im thinking maybe Helicommand Profi with the Eagletree Seagull livefeed system to ensure platform height.
DJI maybe?

Anybody has any experience with such a setup?
I appreciate any info that can be provided.

I am not a land surveyor but I studied it a long time ago in college. I can’t see how you can get accurate surveys from a RC heli platform unless the land is very flat. Even if you can control elevation with respect to the surface of the land (not sea level) a short focal length lens is going to have inaccuracies. I don’t see how you can compete with a satellite or standard practices unless you are only looking for eye ball accuracies. If that be the case I would use a beaded rope as the plumb bob for location and distance.

What could be more fun?
