  • Anyone looking for RC/UAV/Drone Photogrametry or LIDAR surveying, PLease get in touch with me. I have years of experience flying fixed wing and multirotor aircraft and am looking to put together a network of people interested in surveying from low altitude, unmanned aircraft. Specifically LIDAR point cloud imaging.
