There is some good data coming in now. I will update this week with some pictures of the sensor array and the testing setup. I have been working on calibrating the sensors, determining sensitivity to humidity, and resolution.

Yes there are sensors available for all of those gases. I think that yes it will eventually be possible to get good readings with a fly over. Right now the affordable sensors take a little bit of time to become saturated with gas. So the focus is to get the collection method down and prove sensitivty. One thing I will look at is a collection method that allows you to take in sample gas and let it interact with the sensors. So I am going to design a chamber where the sensors will be apart from the ambient air. Handheld sensors are possible also with the technology being so small and light. Hopefully in the end it will be possible to get sensitivity and quick read times all at once. That would allow these sensor arrays to be used in many places.
