Seagull #Map – Click HERE for more info

With Seagull #MAP you can easily trigger your camera – either with your R/C transmitter from the ground, or let your Flight Controller do the job. A lot of camera brands and models are supported.
Just pick the right cable for your camera system – and the rest is “Plug & Play”

NEW: Users of Sony Multi cameras can now enjoy the new Camera On/Off feature and protect their compact camera lens during fixed wing takeoff – by first switching on the camera after takeoff or off before landings.
When used on a multirotor platform, this can minimize the risk of dust getting to the retractable lens mechanism during takeoff and landings.
