Our caller, Ken from NJ is wondering if the M600 with a DSLR is ideal for UAV mapping. Are there any challenges with using high end drones like the M600? Which are some good drone cameras that you can consider? We discuss costs and data quality. Does the data quality justify the high cost? Thanks to Ken from NJ for the question. Fly Safe!
