    Do you have any information about the h520-G manufactured in collaboration with 3DR? I want to buy a UAV (drone) not being blocked in derogation zone for Belgium.

    And that it does not send a copy of my data collected in China or elsewhere as at dji.

    I am looking for a model that can give a good accurate result in centimeter measurement, for 3D plans of Geometers, architects, ...

    The H520 for beginners I like, especially the affordable price, but no camera offers a reliable measurement accuracy. Or I'm wrong ?

    This h520-G equipped with 3DR however would be correct for measurements?

    Excuse me for my English and thank you in advance;

    Le H520 pour débuter me plait bien, surtout le prix abordable, mais aucune camera n’offre une précision de mesure sure. Ou je me trompe ?

    Ce h520-G équipé par 3DR serait cependant correcte pour les mesures ?

    I see you never got a response to your question here. Did you purchase the H520-G? I have just recently purchased one, to resolved the data security issues that you mention (sending data to China). I have not used it enough to recommend it. Several other sources out there indicate that this platform

    3DR is not a piece of is an American based company that is purchasing the Yuneec H520 from China and then adding an after-market controller that is supposed to add security. I am not sure if any hardware on the actual drone platform is modified at all.

    A high-quality camera, at least 16 GB, can collect enough photos to make a 3D model. Programs like Pix4d ( is top of the line. Find a drone that can process that data, use Ground Control Points to correct your drone's GPS-tagged photos, and you can do photogrammetry.

    I am new at this, so ask around, check the drone podcasts, and youtube channels like
