Hi Walter

Great to hear from you. I have a heavely modified X8 (Berghaan) that could do the job. I would need to set up the system for long range though. Can you tell me something about the required product (just high resolution geometric or multispectral imagery?), The time frame, application, budget, accuracy, AOI and resolution?

Greetings Wolfgang
