Well, thanks to the Las Vegas Drone Club we finally finished the carpet on the new pad today. Chris and his team did a fantastic and very quick job of trenching the carpet edges in and cleaning up. Next job is to develop flight patterns that don't interfere with runway operations. Awesome job Chris. We shouldn't have a wind problems now and find the carpet in a big bunch again.
