Where Lewis and Clark finished the rum
We fly Phantom 3, 4, Mavic 2 and hopefully soon a couple homebuilt hex's.
Pix4D Capture will control overlap, camera timing etc for free.
I use WebODM free (actually, I bought the $29 installer package and am thankful i did) https://www.opendronemap.org/webodm/
It will stitch images together into a orthophotomosiac, Digital Terrain Model, and Vegetative index (several different veg indices, with RGB)... all georeferenced (geotiff), so they can be opened in a GIS package - I use QGIS - also free.
Just getting started with Parrot Disco and Sequoia (4 band camera) - struggling to get free camera control software. Looking to cover more acres and get the important near infrared, so can do "true" NDVI.
