Hi Michael - thanks a lot for adding my store. You mean a product search function in the online shop? Unfortunately my current shop system provider doesn't allow for a search function :(

Thanks for responding Felix, yes a site search would be great to track down individual parts (e.g. "IRIS long leg" or "MinimOSD pixhawk cable"). I've hacked together a very limited Product Search on the Pixhawk page of your website but would love to extend that further as your shipping price to Denmark is very reasonable! Will order again soon! :)
