LIDAR Experiments

Looking to add Laser Light Detection and Ranging to my drones with a couple of the nice LIDAR units that can fit on them these days…

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Systems (UAV/UAS) or as popularly named “DRONES”

After a year or two of flying some small hobby-grade drones (Syma X-11, X-5) including solar charging, I have moved on up to a mid-range drone – the Cheerson CX-20 (white drone below). This larger quadcopter drone is capable to lift Go-Pro sized high quality cameras and I have acquired a Go-Pro clone camera that is HD (1080p), 2.7K and 4K video capable to continue my adventures with aerial imaging, GPS navigation and remote operational testing.
