I’m going to request that if there are more arguments to be shared, that they be put elsewhere. It’s great that we’ve all got our own approaches and I’ve been more than open to suggestions thus far, but I’ve made my decision regarding how to proceed. Thanks for your help guys, it has not gone unnoticed.
I see no reason for difference of style or preference to become a tension point in what started as a very personal thread.
Regarding my kit selection, I admit that I selected it with only L1 certification in mind. It might be a shelf queen after the certification flight, it might not. That said, there is absolutely nothing to stop me from, say, picking up an Apogee Zephyr or throwing together a scratch build that can take full advantage of what the L1 range has to offer. I do plan to push into the L2 range once I feel ready.
