"I see. Your price is fair enough. Good luck. It is a niche product. But I would think it would be great as a backup for someone that already has one."

"I have many projects and planes. I bought it for agriculture but ended up using a Skywalker similar to Event 38 or 3DR's old plane. It just sat here so I'm selling  to buy more drone stuff. The Parrot Sequoia is pricey!!!"

FireFly6 DIY (built)

I know that selling here is probably frowned upon but I'm not sure eBay folks are up on this bird (since I have seen none for sale there) so I thought I would let this community have a crack at it first due to advanced knowledge of these systems.
