    Check out this 3D model I made of a gravel pit. I was testing out the Pix4D software and the autopilot app from Maps Made Easy. Everything worked like a charm.

    That looks very cool... we used to pay around £950 per sq km for 3d topography data, it would be great if we could conduct our own surveys. Shame they don't have a version for Mac.

    Another excuse to buy a P3P ;)

    Are you using the Discovery version?

    I thought Pix4D wasn't supported on the p3?

    I am using the discovery version.

    Pix4D's waypoint app is android only (beta version), I used the app developed by maps made easy.

    I'm still demoing different software before buying, I don't have any customers yet as my 333 hasn't come back yet... Not much survey happens in Alaska during the winter anyways.

    So how does that work? You fly over and keep recording? Does the app only use the HD downlink video?

    The app uploads waypoints and travel speed, gimbal points all the way down and takes pictures at certain intervals. The software compares photos for like points to get depth.

    Just tried this out myself with my P3A. Flew it over my cabin up north during peak foliage. Don't know how to share a model, so I made a lousy attempt at videoing my screen. I got the GPS survey equipment to geo-reference and hope to put it all to work for me.

    BTW, used the free Drone Deploy app to fly the mission.

    We've tried the p3p and it goes to fast on the slowest speed setting and to many pics are blurry. Has anyone else found this .
