Overview[edit | edit source]
The basic of the kap_uav.lua is to function as an intervalometer. Which means it was written to take a periodically photograph at a user specified interval. It allows a start-up delay (giving a kite or aircraft time to ascend to shooting height) and will either shoot until stopped manually (by pressing the "MENU" key) or until either a user defined number of shots or a user defined time interval has elapsed.
However, is the script is used with a device capable of CHDK USB Remote operation (like a remote switch, uController, servo interface, or flight controller) then much more precise shooting conditions can be utilized.
