I currently use a 3DR X8-M for survey. It uses CHDK and a canon point and shoot camera. The batteries are huge and the drone isn’t super reliable. I do like the Mission Planner software though.
I’m thinking about switching to a DJI Mavic Pro. I understand that Pix4DCapture will let me set waypoint missions. I use drones 100% for stockpile measurement at several stone quarries. Does anyone have any experience using the Mavic Pro for survey?
Any recommendations? Does the mavic work well for survey like this? I do sometimes encounter windy conditions.
