"This means recreational use would still require a pilot's license! Unacceptable. As far as the camera/sensor part, again, you are suggesting restricting what is now open... Nothing illegal about cameras."

All I can add Brad is that you watch those half dozen or so vids on you tube and any links to make any critical mods. The one like the servo support and placement is the only big one. You want it for some pro work, so these few changes will make it even more rugged. The foam though is really tough stuff, but perhaps a plastic skid plate or even add wheels. Especially if you have to use back lots or parking lots to land it sometimes. Oh and it comes with crappy elastics to hold the wing on. Buy some good ones for a buck. But for the price, you have to expect a few things and in this case they seem to be cheap, easy do it yourself upgrades and you take a decent basic platform and make it even better. I guess it just depends on how far you want to go.

But opinions are like a**holes. Everybody has one.
