We have some great news for those of you about to purchase autopilots.
In cooperation with Robotshop.com (and Robotshop.com/eu/) you can now acquire autopilots bundled together with UgCS.
If you are about to get a Pixhawk or an APM autopilot with GPS, you can get the UgCS ONE license on top of that for just a few dollars.
Just wanted to thank you for being active users and let you know what you can meet with us and see UgCS 2.4 preview at AUVSI Expo next week.
Please be welcome at our booth #3144
