This was a test using a small unmanned aerial system sUAS to create a 3d image. Im using an APM 2.6 mounted on a Y6 Hexacopter. The images were captured with a GoPro3 with a 2 axis gimbal.  The camera was set to take a picture every 2 seconds and I used 20 images from the flight to create the following. The images were uploaded to Autodesk 123d Catch for the point cloud reconstruction and 3d model construction. This process took a total of 7 minutes to complete (<2 minute flight and 5 minutes to process).
