  1. Congratulations everyone who participated today on a very smooth flight. The new onboard tracker/predictor worked a treat and greatly reduced our reliance on the Internet whilst mobile. The images captured were absolutely superb Jason Hansma should be very pleased with the effort and the imagery he will have to work with.
