"Great rig, Vince. May I ask how you get the video feed from the Sony NEX? I have a hex with a Sony as well as separate FPV cam I use primarily for framing shots. It'd be great to just see it from the source cam. Thanks"
"Hi Patrick and welcome!
Let me say that as a pro photographer it's been really rewarding to shoot from a new perspective. Of course, I'm only using my images for personal use as the FAA doesn't permit commercial use of drones - if you're in the US.…"
"Thanks for the replies. The one that ended up working for me was the one that started with "bb5ee0e..." Not sure why it's different from yours Thomas. Actually, I had to try a couple of others like "320cab..." and "76ff.." - they showed 2.8.1…"
Hi all,I'm running 2.9.1 on an APM 1 board and since updating my stock quad has not been the same. Thanks to Randy's help, we've determined that the new code doesn't play well with the older chipset. I'd like to reinstall v2.8.1 since I my quad…

"Seth, Looks like I posted just as your reply was in queue so you certainly provided an answer to my questions about selling aerial photos for stock use. I should have perhaps qualified my statement about being "familiar" with the regulation because…"
Thanks for the info. I am familiar with the restriction and I can see how my post may have seemed commercial in nature, especially by tagging on my business info. As Greg clarified, I was just referring to having friends on the inside that…"
"Jack, very true! I'm very fortunate to have several friends and clients in the industry who permit me to fly on their properties. That said, there are also some amazing locations accessible from the road but I'm not a believer in it being easier to…"
