"Yeah at this point I was pretty much just planning on using them for takeoff and having a seperate motor that handles forward flight. Reading the options it looks like you can set them to help in the corners as well but that's probably down the…"

"Are the motors used only for lift?  What kind of performance do you need in forward flight, and does that use different motors/props? I would say bigger props if you don't need lots of acceleration. "

"From the point of view of efficiency (and thereby noise), larger props that turn slower are beneficial. As you said already, they will all do their job, and small props increase responsitivity and therefore faster control. Now, it's the…"

you were going to say something........  "Where did you"?

Where to start?

I had a look on my computer; I have Gb of files since starting this 5 months ago.

I had the camera's modified at a local camera repair shop. I ended up talking to one of the techos in the shop and he surprisingly knew exactly what I wanted because he had done the exact same thing for a University lecturer last year; so I left him to it and just took what he gave me without too many questions. His big emphasis was having the camera dustproof which has proved to be a very good idea. Some of the cameras with pop-out lenses are very prone to dust, mud and water. I can send you some more info if you like; specifically what do you need to know? I am currently happy with using the SkyWalker and a Skyfun.

Regards Jerry

Your camera guys must be a lot better than my guys!  I asked a local shop about it and they pretty much stared at me with a blank look.  So did they do the modification to fire both of the cameras at the same time also?  Send me anything that you've got I'm really interested.  What crops are you scouting and what altitude are you running at when taking pictures?  Sorry for being so nosey.
