"Wessie,      This page is for copter but I think the same method will allow you to download logs "using mavlink" even on plane.  You'll also need a recent version of MP with this functionality."

"Hi Wessie, Hope you are well. There is no more CLI in Arduplane. You will have to download the log via mavlink on the flight data screen under "Data Flash logs" Groete Andreas"

Hi

What will the pricing be on your talon kit? And if you need anyone to demo or test i'm up for it... Mechanical engineering student ( final year) at NWU Pukke... I'm also involved with the anti-poaching competition and will also be entering a team.

Kind Regards

Gerrit
