  3. Hi Greg, thank u, gradually on the mend…ironically, I ran into Dave MacMillan at the CNZ event in late November, I believe, in Vancouver…they have some potential suppliers in common with their respective businesses…I expect DVR to start kicking into gear rather soon, especially since he said they would be focusing more attention on getting the word out about Deveron early in Q1…unique and undervalued opportunity IMHO…we’ll continue to watch closely and follow up with MacMillan in due course as events warrant…

  4. I emailed David last year.. his response:
    Jeremy – sorry! Think I missed this email. Thanks for the forward. A lot of research reports are pegging agriculture and drones alone at $30 billion!

    I think 2017 is going to be a transformational year for us. Hope to connect soon!
