Cobbled together is an understatement - but boy did I learn a lot about drones. (To be clear, the Xbox controller is for the Payload Operator, I also have a regular FrSky for flight control.) So, you're right, this…"

"The new TFR feature is certainly useful, but could maybe use a tweak?
The outer ring of the large area around DC is the SFRA, which is not a prohibition per se, whereas the inner ring does specifically by regulation prohibit RC flight. One of the TF…"
