If anyone is interested in blogs about life on a small tropical island, I've had one going for about 7 years now. Google "2 Gringos in the Caribbean" if you want to see it. Don't worry, I'm not one of those blog floggers. I write it because I enjoy it. No money involved. Nothing to sell.
We've lived in the Turks and Caicos Islands since 2005, and I've taken a lot of photos. I started out with an ultralight aircraft, which we sold before moving out of the USA. Then I tried taking aerials using a six foot diameter spherical helium balloon, with a picavet, pan and tilt, telemetry, etc. But the winds here prevent it from being a stable platform. So I got into KAP and have been doing pretty well with it for a couple of years. Now I just received a Pocket Drone this week, and am pretty excited about being able to control the camera platform.
I consider this a learning drone, and test bed. What I REALLY need is a UAV that can handle salt water.
