Hi Glen,

Great to hear from you. I have built my 3DR 2014 Y6 kit with Pixhawk and have had a couple flies. I am not very experienced so still early days. I am still working through things like auto tune etc, and have yet to get a decent radio TX. But it's a start. I would like to get into aerial photography too. I agree it is a slow process, with all the other commitments.

I found another 3DR flyer in Townsville recently. So we'll have to get together sometime.

Regards,

Graham
