Quote from one of the attendees
“Just wanted to say thank you for taking of your time and energy to share with us a great amount of relevant info on UAS today. You have a natural gift to keep it interesting and relevant. Sharing in someone’s passion is always fun especially when it has economic value. Let’s stay in touch as you work through some of the IR results this spring.

Thanks a million.”
