    I would love to tell you there is a light at the end of the tunnel, but instead I'll recommend a second job. :D

    lol Well they don't pay any thing for it. But Albany medical hospital is one of the few programs in the country that some one can donate there body to science. and there is no cost to the person or there family and when you die they pay for all the arrangements and transportation of the body.

    Both my parents did it when they died.

    What kind of camera are you putting in that gimbal? What freq will the camera broadcast on? I hear problems with 5.2 ghz cameras cause flyaways, but it does seem that a lot of folks have them working with the right modification.

    You haven't even gotten to FPV, extra batteries, antennas, extra props, a case, a monitor.... you'll look back and laugh in a couple of months. Sometimes I think a drug habit would've been cheaper.
