@Martin Hill Compliments, your LED is amazing! What flight controller do you use? we're super interested in testing that vehicle with VOLTA 4Gmetry (http://diydrones.com/group/volta) - write me silvio@voltarobots.com and we will arrange something for sure! Once again, it's one of the most interesting projects I've seen here!

If anyone is interested, I'll process some imagery for you using Pix4d. I'm not setting out to be a data processor, but I'm spending a lot of time in the program and just finished setting up a new server for processing our images. 

The weather is crap right now and I'm tired of playing with the same old data sets. If you have some you'd like to share, upload the unedited files to drive/dropbox and PM me the link.

Oops, sorry I meant a Spade, which is a scaled up Z3...to a coincidentally 70" wingspan.

Yikes that's quite the mark up or quite the great promotional offer.

Comment by Jakob Schmidt on October 8, 2015 at 11:48am

It's more of a scaled up Z3.

Comment by Naoki Oishi on October 8, 2015 at 10:31am

Is that a ritewing zephyr? I swear that is the exact design. I hope Chris at Ritewing is involved in that company, he designed an incredible airframe, those bays and choro design are his signature, i'd recognize it anywhere!
