Summer 2014 Field Work

The TATTS team was busy this summer on many different missions including flying to support shoreland restoration efforts in northern Wisconsin, collecting imagery on a cabin in northern Wisconsin, and imaging corn fields in south central Wisconsin.

  1. I have visited your site all the sites are really good but if you really interested in technology then visit our site.

    I've been flying DJI Phantoms since day one. I've got phantom 2 drone a deposit with UAV Direct for the DJI Inspire 1. My question is-- do you think the "optical flow sensor" will help eliminate "flyaways?" It should, you would think, because it serves as a Drone Training backup to the GPS. Now here's another question-- do you think the "optical flow control" technology will show up on the next DJI ground station generation DJI Phantom? I bet it does, although the guys at UAVDirect who seem pretty tight with DJI drone gimbal couldn't say for sure. Exciting times in the drone business anyway!

    1. Thanks for the comment Angelina. And good luck with your Inspire 1 when it arrives! I don't see the optical flow sensor as assisting in reducing flyaways as much as maintaining flight when GPS isn't available. We'll see what DJI comes up with next.
