Surveying and aviation combined, all in a handy suitcase-sized package...What's not to like about this?
Seriously, as a guy that started surveying just when the first EDM machines were coming out (not that we got to use them much), this is some amazing stuff. Wish I'da thought of it...
I do wonder how higher winds would affect data capture. I can also envision some field-level angst when your new $50K+ surveying instrument is firmly anchored in the upper branches of a 60 foot elm tree.
Regardless, there are some great applications for this tool, and the gee-whiz factor is off the charts in my book.
