Hi, Steered here from the InspirePilots forum.

I'm a UAV operator in the UK and have been since 2009 (One of the first to get Certified by the CAA, my Permission No. is two digits long). Onto my third drone (Inspire 1 Pro), but am winding down operations now for a number of reasons, but the main two are that another business is taking all my time (so none to invest here) and also there are so many pilots out there now it's getting harder to compete as a solo operator, being undercut by the budget guys with something from Maplin and not having the equipment to Compete at the top end.

Bit of a depressing intro, but it's been a great time and I've shot everything from Scrap heaps to the Millennium Dome.

Selling a FLIR IR camera elsewhere if anyone's interested.
