Baby Vultures From My Iris+

I noticed a few months back a large bird going into the barn near where I fly.  Now I see that it has had babies and I think they are Vultures.  Sort of neat to see this.  I hope to catch more as they grow.   Also I noticed that the Farmer made some really cool artwork in the dirt.   Hope you enjoy Grandpa Jake             http://youtu.be/iFHnMfImuH4See More

"Yes, the Quanum Nova from Hobby King is the rebranded Cheerson cx 20 from Banggood.com. The thing about the Cheerson is that there is a zero version which is not open source. They also carry the open source version so pay attention when purchasing."

Multi-Rotors That Work With Mission Planner or Android Planner

I am looking for an inexpensive multi-rotor that can have telemetry and work with mission planner or similar program.  I was told that Cheerson and Walkera have a model that will work.  If anyone could guide me or help I would be very thankful.  Also buying the correct 915mhz telemetry so I can monitor its flight.   Any help would be very much appreciated.  Or if you have a better place to ask this please let me knowThanks See More
