This is just a test I did with the latest 3D-mapping software of Drone Deploy. The map was taken with 18 pictures only. More tests with more pictures and other locations to follow. Drone deploy offers free trials and basic use for free which has some limitations. Check out the website: www.dronedeploy.com
Well, I have not been an enthusiast about Yuneec RTF (ready-to-fly) products such as the Thypoon Q500, because material quality appears to be cheap (soft plastic) and flight behavior as well as controls feel weird, especially when you are used to DJI products.
This might change: Yuneec recently launched the all-new Tornado H920 which is a professional-grade RTF filming drone capable of carrying a gimbal for Panasonic GH4. This sounds impressive and it would be the first RTF drone of its kind being able to carry a DSLR-type camera. Especially I like the fact that Yuneec offers the options to choose 3rd party cameras which for example DJI does not do anymore for their RTF products. Furthermore, the drone material seem to be made of carbon fiber which means a significant improvement in product quality.
The MSRP is $3499, and it comes with a mobile stabilizer that looks like a Ronin-M. Thus, it seems you get a lot of value for your money. More information to follow if I get the opportunity to test it.

Masterpiece: "O.D." is by far my most favorite Music Video I ever worked on!!
Directed by Sense Hernandez from Beast Factory Films and the video was launched today. It has a very sad story behind. The Chicago,IL based artist JDott Trife was diagnosed with cancer right after the shot and passed away two days ago. His fantastic partner DJ O-Zone who is also in the video did the beats. I'll never forget this day.

DJI launched it's first mobile handheld device for drone gimbal cams. With a price tag of $649 incl. cam its quite a decent deal. However, Inspire 1 owners already got this camera (DJI X3) with their drone, therefore most owners wait for the "naked" handheld version. The handheld is also compatible with the new DJI X5 camera. - More info: DJI OSMO website
3D-mapping for real estates, office buildings, landmarks, and much more is now available with astonishing results. See the 2nd half of the video. Those pictures were taken wit the new DJI X5 camera which I also use for my services. I can do this for you. Contact me if you are interested.
