Smarter Cheaper Faster
Thanks for the response.
You are right about the airframe. Certainly gusting will be a factor, but what i am looking for is real precision when I create a flight plan with regards to the line the plane actually flies. This is because I am working to connect a LIDAR sensor to the airframe for aerial survey capability.
Now, I am not looking for elevations or xy within inches (10cm)....but I would like the accuracy of the GPS to be sub-meter....hence the addition of a sig fig. I do have commercial GPS equipment that has GPS (WAAS) +Glonass to get sub meter real-time (much better post-processed), but all I want is a low PDOP and 1-2 foot accuracy....attopilot will correct and keep it on course as close as possible even with wind gusts correct? So the closer to "precise" based on my line....the better to reduce skew on the ground. I assume? HA! Also I plan to have the ability to fly 2-3 or more times to use the best data based on "those pesky wind gusts" or other "acts of God". My assumptions is that with the capabilities of the new IMU and then the addition of a "commercial GPS chipset" This thing will be commercially viable in this area?
