Time Slot:

Purpose:
Use ATVs to transport quad-copter and deploy at way point.

Narrative:
Transporting the quad-copter on the back of the ATV was very easy and straight forward.  We placed the quad-copter in a large padded camera bag and attached it to the back of the ATV with bungees.  It was very secure.  Once at the way point we deployed the copter to take images of what was beyond on top and beyond the land mass.  We used three photo techniques.  The first flight we took still images with the camera pointing straight down.  The second flight we took still images with the camera facing about 60 degrees forward.  The third flight we took video with the camera facing about 60 degrees forward.  We made sure to fly the copter mostly up and not too much over the land mass in the event of a failure.  The wind was very minimal making the flight very easy.

Once we viewed the images, the still photos with the camera facing 60 degrees forward seemed to give us the best perspective on the lay of the land on the other side of the land mass.  We will refine our technique on subsequent EVAs
