I am seriously considering purchasing a Micasense RedEdge-M for my crop surveys. It seems like a good combination of visible and IR+ in one pass. Micasense estimates that it will take about 27 minutes to fly 100 acres at 120 meters. I have a 200 acre parcel and using their settings, I get total flight time of just over 40 minutes with 1138 pictures with my copy of Mission Planner. Based Mission Planner, 100 acres would be around 600 images at a resolution of 8 cm per pixel.
For those of you using the RedEdge-M, about how long does it take to fully process images from a 100 acre survey? I realize there are a lot of variables in that question, including the specs of your computer as well as the parameters of your flight. Would a 200 acre survey take twice as long, or do the relative times increase as the size of the survey increases?
