I work in the Forestry Field in B.C, Canada and I have been thinking about buying an Inspire 1 for months now to make extra money and make my job a little easier and funner. Before I do invest in a quad though I have a LOT of questions about the capabilities and drawbacks that come along with it. I'll try and make this simple. Ill list the questions I can think of from #1-?? and just try and go from there. I know someone who uses quadcopters to make 3D maps basically by flying a grid pattern and taking pictures. I want to do something similar to this concept. 1. Is anyone using this drone for Forestry?? If so is it worth using it for certain things or can tell me about the specific stuff they do with it? 2. How good is the GPS of the Inspire 1? Can you take points as you fly and get accurate co-ordinates at the current position? How accurate? 3. I heard there are two kinds of batteries. One that lasts for 17 min and then another type that lasts for 22 min? Is there a longer-lasting battery? 4. I plan on using the drone to fly over a forest basically. Will there be some kind of program I have to download that is after-market that I can put in my laptop and use it to upload information to fly a grid?? Question 4 is really important actually... I need to know what kind of programs are out there that work with the Inspire. Or do you just take the pictures the drone produces and then use those images or videos to create something into 3d that is a separate entity from the Inspire company???? I know these questions might be vague but I know nothing about what comes with the Inspire or what they are capable of, please keep this in mind. 5. If I crash the Inspire somehow in the forest, how will I be able to find it? Is there some kind of a locator on the aircraft that I can use to find it in the middle of the bush?? 6. If Im flying over rough terrain and its flying a grid on autopilot. Does the Inspire automatically stay above the tree tops a certain distance? Or do I have to set a 'hard deck' or a minimum altitude it can fly based off the highest contour? Ill leave it at this for now... If anyone has anything to add please feel free. And thanks ahead of time for the people that give me some answers!!!
