Antonie Kruger commented on Chris Anderson's blog post Time: "Here's why so many drone pilots are getting in trouble" (they're not RC folks)

"Hi Wayne, looks great. You should make it a 80 inch from the start - you know the requests are coming. This wing will be about the size of a X5."

Antonie Kruger replied to Tawanda's discussion Rover going to way points but acts strange during start up in the group ArduRover User Group

"Graham, I hear your argument and agree out of optimism, but who will test this. SACAA's opinion is that their instruction is as binding as law. Testing this legally is the only way of getting clarity and speeding the legislation process."
