You said you didn't think you would be in business if there were such widespread problems with APM...that led me to think that's exactly why you are. You obviously have better customer service, shipping, and phone support. Quite unlike 3dr, that is exactly why I order rctimer from UAVObjects instead. Keep up the good marketing!
