"Hello Sir, Did you have any balancing issues with the Gimbal after you installed the 5.4 mm lens? Also, do you have any idea if there would be any issues if I used the standard lens? Thank you,"

"Hi Rob, The price came from a Google search tag that my Antivirus told me threatened my very existence if I went to it, so I chickened out and I'm not sure what currency it was in either. I also, as you know, eulogize Sony, but I was surprised…"

"That's actually a nice looking gimbal. But what's the story on the R10C?  I actually tried to buy a new QX1 just yesterday, and found it was discontinued.  Will the R10C be available to everyone, or is it a 3DR special only for…"

"I'll have to reread the exam schedule part.  The way I read it,  it sounded like I could go to any listed KTC and take the test without an appointment. Regards, David R. Boulanger"

Glenn Gregory commented on Daniel McKinnon's blog post Idiot's Guide to DroneKit Android: Reskinning Tower for Fun and Profit
"Just an update the cause of this was when I imported the tower project into AS it put all the compile statements in the dependancies onto the same line. Seperating these to individual lines allows me to now build the project."

Posted on November 13, 2016 at 10:30pm 2 Comments
