Sony is releasing a new multi spectral/RGB camera system for this purpose that does not require networking. It may be possible, strike that, I’m sure it’s possible to adapt the 920 to carry it. I’ll post a link to their press release a bit later.

What about the H520 pro?

Mapping is not dependent to what aircraft you fly. Even an iPhone can do photogrammetry. There are lots of tutorials on how to do it. I mapped with an H+ although it’s taxing, but not impossible.

Having to learn things sort of defeats the premise of becoming an instant success, doesn't it?;) OTOH, "crop mapping" covers a lot of territory. If all one is doing is mapping out a field just about any drone having a camera that records GPS position data can do it, but the amount of work required to complete the process varies immensely. For crop health a multi spectral camera is required.

And I actually did walk a couple miles each way to attend grade school. But life has been made much easier and most have become fatter in the process. Myself included.

Fast and easy is good, but learning fundamentals first makes you better. You can learn to shoot first or how to aim first. Only one will get you on target.

Edit; did a Goggle Earth sanity check and have to revise. 1.3 miles for high school and 1.67 miles for intermediate school.

AND it was Kodachrome, so we had to wait a week to see if it worked...🙃
