"Hi Euan, am helping to organize a drone Search&Rescue challenge in May, wondering whether you'd be interested in having your payloader tested there? Where in CH are you based? Am in Geneva next month"

I am in Unterageri, south of Zurich, but can easily meeting up if needed! What exactly did you have in mind? It sounds interesting, and I would love to see my payloader put to real use by real users!
