  1. Thanks for the greeting @Steve BennettWhile I am waiting for the interminable rain to stop I am studying Youtube videos trying to get my head around the map and the radar. Maybe I am over-thinking things. But I really need to acquire the confidence that if I panic under pressure (which I am sure will happen the first time Sparky goes out of sight), I will be able to cooly and calmely know where the drone is in relation to my position and get the heading right to bring it back (without RTH ideally )

Wow , super impressed by you building your own drones. Sounds like it has become a
  5. Hi everyone from the Sunshine Coast Australia! My goal is to share my knowledge and bring you all up to speed - I know NOTHING - you are now up to speed!!! And that is my status - I know nothing - well, pretty much as I don't think having owned a Spark for a week and taken it for a spin around the garden about five times (albeit without mishap admittedly) counts for very much......But we have a farm and so when this patch of rain ends am going to put it through its paces. Thought I would start with a Spark as not a massive investment if I bury it in the side of a hill or put it
