I received my RC Logger Pro along with the GPS and Orientation modules. Initially I had to do a hard reset to get the RC Logger Viewer to recognize the camera, but that was due to my connecting it in the wrong order. Now it works without a hitch. The products are great at what they do. They are small, lightweight, and easy to connect and setup. I was flying with it in about 30min. I had to of course figure out where to mount it on my hex. My only criticism, or more of a hope for the next models, is:

1. That they up the quality to be a bit more sturdy and robust. These are a fairly lightweight plastic and seem to just be clipped together in a simple fashion. They feel a bit fragile.
2. More modules with better precision or higher data sample rate would be a bonus. The GPS modules took a few seconds to get a good lock (i.e. 5-9 sats) but then did very well. If only this could be done with a GPS logger that could be deferentially corrected afterwards using local base station data, then photogrammetrists using little drones might be all over this product.
3. Bump up the camera sensor size a few steps. It doesn't have to be huge, I've made amazing digital elevation models using GoPro. But something bigger with more that 5mp. I read about the new camera with 16mp?

That's about it. Keep up the work. These kits are a great, but can be better and hopefully you will improve on them bit by bit.

RC Logger Viewer seems to be more intuitive than most video software I've used, at least for me.
