Re: Drone for the GoPro Fusion

@nicedawn63442 I can see why you would think that would work but it wouldnt. First, a 360 camera has 2 lenses, its two cameras, at minimum, like the Fusion.

Also,

 

In order to do obstacle avoidance using optical sensors you have to be able to see depth, you cannot see depth with one camera, try catching a ball with one eye closed, it is difficult.

 

This is why the obstacle avoidance sensors on dji drones use 2 cameras for the each direction, to see depth, to judge distance to objects.

All in all, the cheap little sensors  make it function very well.

 

Anyhow, I think the Fusion will do great as a flyable 360 camera. It has the best quality to size/weight ratio available

I guess something like Humaneyes Vuze or Insta360 Pro would be overkill on a drone, 360 cameras that are also 3D cameras. 3D only works well for objects say within 15 meters or so anyhow, so it wouldn't do much for a drone flying high in the sky.

Re: Drone for the GoPro Fusion

Hi Helnet. Can you share the link to the file for 3D printer on GoPro Fusion mount for INSPIRE 2? Or where can I find it? Do you also have source files? Maybe I am interested into longer "tube" - to get the Fusion more down under INSPIRE2? thank you for your answer.
