Anyone in this group doing the first RPA licenses in SA?

@Gary - it is called "life happened". Started a new job (not my own boss anymore) and getting married (*really* not my own boss anymore).

But on a serious note - it is also too far for me to travel, since I am currently based in Bloemfontein. So anybody who can provide a professional level of service, please contact me. This is a pilot project for a (very) well known international company...could lead to big things...

Why is it not ready Walter?? I've done stuff like that before but its a little far to travel. Just get the Talon flying!

Hi guys (girls?),

I have an aerial photography (for GIS) project that I need to do in the Western Cape (Overberg). It is a 27km stretch of a river that needs to be flown and the images georeferenced.

Unfortunately my Talon is not ready yet - anybody interested in doing it?

You can PM me. 

Cheers

Walter
