Hi @fnoop! Thanks for the detailed answer ! Even though it’s not exactly what we wanted to hear
To be fair (to the inexpensive hardware), we don’t plan on using either for our eventual product/solution but we were hoping for a cheap way to put together a proof of concept (drone images, find spots/targets , tell GS/web server, in turn tells other drones and assign targets) so at this moment, it’s more a fun hobby project magnitude than a production solution. We would more likely eventually buy a drone that readily offers the capabilities we are looking for (far from limited to IR camera) or experiment with “real” cameras.
For now, what I’m hearing, is that between the two , you would recommend the Seek? (Without really recommending either )
For our first iteration, having to turn the camera on manually is not a big deal, what matters more is being able to pipe the feed / images into an onboard simple detection code (which we don’t have) to test this architecture I mentioned above. (At the moment the imaging drone just “makes up” random targets for the other drones to be assigned to )
I’ll check in the Flir Vue but I imagine it’s not within budget reach until we kick this project up a notch (given that we need quite a few quads to construct a scaled version of said architecture)
Thanks again !
