Question
Custom builder req'd for FPV UAV Skywalker project

Hi all
I have been looking into suitable FPV UAV's for a project - basically I'm seeking a suitable FPV platform for shark spotting/surveillance work...operated off a beach with the UAV flying up to 1km from the base station just off the beach.
I'm considering the FPV Skywalker equipped with camera pod mount and autopilot system.
I'm wondering if anyone knows of someone who might be interested and able to undertake the build of this for me as it would be beyond my present capabilities.

If you cannot build it, could you maintain it?

I didn't build my Jeep, but I quite happily have the skills to maintain it

I think you got most of your answers in the UAV forum thread.

Best to build up FPV system incrementally yourself.
