RedEdge-MX is a multispectral camera made by Micasense company (USA). That model known by excellent value for money. New RedEdge-MX doesn't have any problems with overheat and RGB images processing.
Camera's kit is included new upgraded Downwelling Light Sensor (DLS2).
Agisoft Metashape has some automatic functions for RedEdge-MX data processing.
For example, Metashape can detect QR-bars, that used for calibration. Information from downwelling light sensor automaticlly copied from photos metadata.
The RedEdge-MX camera is capable of Geoscan and other UAVs. We recommended using it with Geoscan 201 series with a special CAN bus for many types of payloads.
Report on the results of aerial photography and photogrammetric processing of data obtained using the multispectral camera MicaSense RedEdge-MX, installed on the GEOSCAN 201 UAV.
The Picture is shows information about raw data before processing. Color indicates the number of images overlaps (requires at least 3). Stable camera's shooting points and many overlaps indicate the high quality of the data.

Agisoft Metashape use data about sensors from metadata.
Five spectral channels are interprieted by software as individual cameras.

The calibration coefficients and the correlation matrix
The image shows shooting positions and offsets of shooting. Error on Z is shown by ellipse color. Errors in plan are shown by ellipse form. The calculated shooting positions are marked by black dots.
Offsets of the camera position
X - Length, Y - Width, Z - Height.
The image shows a calculated digital model of the area.
