I took out my Parrot Sequoia from Disco Pro Ag (which in my opinion is not a good platform to work on the particularly difficult terrain that I usually work on) to integrate it into a DJI mavic pro. In order to not add too much weight to the drone i am feeding the camera from the mavic´s battery (12v-3850mAh) through a step down module (LM2596), 3Ah, adjustable output voltage set to 5.0v. Tried some other power sources like 5.0v powerbanks (various), 3DR and Crius power modules (3Ah), generic 5v- 3Ah BEC, but I can't get the light sensor to stay on. After a while the light sensor status LED turns off and I don´t know if it is actually sending the light correction to the images taken or if it is correctly geo-referencing the images, even though the camera is effectively shooting. I am also experiencing problems when trying to set up the camera via wifi due to some kind of interference (???) when turning on the drone.
Has anybody tried this integration? In the market there are several hardware integration kits, but no one seems to explain the particular problem of camera feeding.....
