lo mismo pienso, voy a mirar tus fotos. Una pregunta, que tipo de camara le vas a colocar?, yo al mio le pienso colocar una canon sx230, pues no es tan pesada, lo que no he podido todavia definir es como integrar los disparos al piloto automatico, eso si me tiene pensando bastante, jajajaja.

Hi Cala  Let me know your address and what you want shipped to you. I think 3DR sells compasses.. if you need anything else let me know. Do you have paypal? Perhaps you can pay me that way. But I'm not worried about if it's just the compass they are cheap.

I am from Livonia Michigan USA by the way :] Love flying the quad lots of fun!!! Hope the compass fixes your problem. I think the biggest problem with these things is the compass!!
