Hi people

I've launched a campaign on Indiegogo to build UAS kits and supply them to Nature Reserves in and around Southern Africa to fight the war against poachers.

Please spread the word, we need some serious help to stop these thugs

Can Techpod be used for this purpose? http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/841500112/techpod-the-hobby-uav

If it can be used for this purpose it will greatly reduce time to implement this project.

That is a really good looking platform.

Thanks for sharing

By the way, Falcon UAV spoke at DroneCon about a week ago about the work they're doing to help.  I believe Falcon UAV uses the APM2.5 in at least some of their aircraft.  news link is here.

Accepted.

wonder to what extent there is communication  / collaboration between the various parties involved in this anti-poaching work? Perhaps a little naive but presumably it is a commercial 'space' .?

- Joe and Gisella Noci - nampilot - Wide Horizons

- Conservation Drones

- Shadowview

- Falcon UAV

- WWF

- Protrack

and also The Thin Green Line  - but not using UAVs to my knowledge.

Presumably there are others.

No there is not, but there has been communication from the SACAA about these activities. They are not happy.
