Nice setup kimo! How do you secure the wheels when in observation mode? And how do you level the whole setup when in position?

Thanks. It has bubble level and three heavy duty grounding clamps to lift up whole setup, it seated like rock. the base is really heavy and solid.

Hi Kimo,

The setup is more for AP than visual? Looks like it will have obstacle for visual.
