Love the photo's. :) They'd look good in Wild, or Africa Geographic. Great message, too.

Shame Christo looks really shaken. Glad that no-body got hurt, some gaurdian angles work over time on that one.

Hope the Gyro is still onder warrenty.

Is it the Gyros for rhinos team that was arrested in Namibia for problems with permission to fly in that country?

No, the Gyros for Rhinos team has completed their epic journey.

See here.

The people who got in to trouble were not flying with gyros.
