Hi, first time post here, hoping someone can give me some steer.
I have a few Reach M+ units in my fixed wing mapping aircraft and generally they are working very well and this is proving to be a great product.
However, recently I did a trial on a new aircraft and I found that the events file has far less events than I have images (around 546 images vs 465 events). I also did a check against the overall number of trigger points from the flight controller and can confirm it matches the number of images.
This is my setup/workflow:
Camera is a Sony QX1, triggered from flight controller, with feedback to Reach M+. The camera was modified (by another party) to enable feedback and there is a single cable which connects to the “Time mark1 - 2” connector on the Reach M+). The signal from the camera is 2 milliseconds on high.
I am in the UK, so use Ordnance Survey base station data to generate the corrections and bring the data into RTKPOST processing, along with the obs and nav files from the aircraft. I then use the KML/GPX converter to generate the GPX file for the events, which I then bring into Geosetter for geotagging.
For this particular trial, I managed to get around the issue by Geotagging with the time offset method, along with the overall GPX track file (ie. all GPS points) and all seems OK, but would obviously prefer to use the events GPX file to geotag.
Any thoughts, comments appreciated.
