I’ve been working on mounting the new Flir Vue Pro R to the phantom over the last few weeks. The wooden prototype worked reasonably well but was a bit off balance, the new 3D printed design flys much better and has mounting slots for the battery and for better securing of the camera and battery. I did a few tests using video, timelapse and photos but need to tinker with the settings a bit more before taking it out to Iceland.
The mount flys well, and doesn’t inhibit the use of the phantoms inbuilt camera, I’ve also worked out how to georeference the thermal images.
Things I’ll be looking into in the coming weeks include…
- Tweaking the settings
- Optimum height for acquisition
- Stitching together thermal images
Looking forward to an exciting few weeks ahead.
