3DR Solo

"Yeap...unfortunately their app is still very expensive. Here are 5 different ones for the Phantom 4 in a review from YouTube:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EIe64Ab8HB8"

3DR Solo

"You can't just go and use SiteScan with that.  You have to pay 3DR over $10,000 for that package."

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Currently flying and building quadcopters including a new 3DR Solo that uses Linux Foundation DroneCode and dual 1Ghz CPU's, a DJI 2 clone - CX-20 350 Open Source quad that uses Arduino Mega-based APM v2.52 with the ArduCopter v3.1.2 and a DJI Flamewheel 450 clone with a RobotShop/Lynxmotion Quadrino Nano (Arduno Mega 2560 based CPU).

Have built a full-up F-16 simulator based upon the old Falcon 3.x/4.0 program and Thrustmaster hardware/kit. Done some work on integrating that as a ground station with various R/C aircraft including VTOL designs and R/C helis.
