    Hi guys

    I'm a complete newbie to drones and their making. I'm an archaeologist and we use equipment that detects the earths magnetism and the anomalies in them, so that enables us to find buried sites and features before we dig. I have an idea to mount a smaller version of our equipment directly to a drone and program the drone to fly over the land that requires surveying, thereby reducing the human effort for the survey. The issue I face is that the drones engines will give of some magnetism and possibly skew the data, so I need to chat to someone about this. So if anyone would like to help me out/partner on this then please do let me know. It would be great to hear from you.
