If anyone is interested, I'll process some imagery for you using Pix4d. I'm not setting out to be a data processor, but I'm spending a lot of time in the program and just finished setting up a new server for processing our images. 

The weather is crap right now and I'm tired of playing with the same old data sets. If you have some you'd like to share, upload the unedited files to drive/dropbox and PM me the link.

Oops, sorry I meant a Spade, which is a scaled up Z3...to a coincidentally 70" wingspan.

Yikes that's quite the mark up or quite the great promotional offer.

It's more of a scaled up Z3.

Is that a ritewing zephyr? I swear that is the exact design. I hope Chris at Ritewing is involved in that company, he designed an incredible airframe, those bays and choro design are his signature, i'd recognize it anywhere!

Thanks Shaun. That's what I was trying to do this morning, but it didn't seem very intuitive to me. I was in a hurry, though .I'll try again when I get back home.

Yes, but don't bother with more than 3.  Adding more questionable points isn't going to help.
