A new toy for research: Drone

It is great that our team is able to buy a new instrument, Drone, to help with our research and project. The droneĀ is the DJI Phantom 3 Standard. It costs only RM1,830. This drone has GPS, which is the main criterion that we decide to buy, and it is the cheapest drone with GPS on the market.

The drone will use especially on the terrain, flood, and settlement mapping. I think the usage of the drone can be utilized more if we explore more.

Here some picture and analysis from the drone.
