    Hail to you Don.
    Keep up the nice work and pls lose the prop guards or are they there for safety as you fly in high populated area's ?
    I guess you know what to do when VRS happens.

    Very nice! Fair and balanced report. This is the type of coverage we need.

    Excellent job communicating the issues Don!

    I've been flying with the guards on since I've owned it (5 months) and I really haven't had any problems using them. I know many feel that it's better to fly without them because it's lighter and the potential VRS but I like how they look and they make it easy to carry :)

    During my learning curve, I flew many dozens of flights with no VRS. Now, the guards stay off as we can't afford time of installing/removing.

    Nice to see a positive story about UAVs in the newspaper --- gotta counterbalance all this nonsense about drones only being used to invade privacy and endanger the public.

    Last time I checked, people are more often and more severely hurt by Internet crime and ID theft than anything a drone has ever done to them.

    Congrats. You live in a great area. We use the airport across the river and found Landmark very accommodating for our work.
