    Tell me about the FPV activity. I assume it is associated with the about Techpod? I might be interested in working with you guys. I picked up your card from the SCCMAS flying field near San Jose, CA this morning.

    Thanks

        Wayne is correct, we are just fleshing the site out, but we thought it was important to let people leave us questions and comments right away.

        Just updating this a bit for Wayne’s sake, there will be FPV video very soon, as well as additional information.

  2. Wayne, excited to see the prototype on your opening page! Look forward to seeing the thing fly !! The GoPro should fit nicely:)

  4. Hi,
    When will Techpod be ready for sales??

    I need an inexpensive way to quickly get high resolution images in real time for security surveillance.

    Greetings from Mexico.

      HI Sergio,

      We are going to be adding a store here very soon. In fact I am going to be adding the components today, but also I am waiting on some important details to make it go live
