Re: [dronedata][weldd] Webinar URGENT:

Hello Everyone
I am very sorry for this last minute notice but I'm afraid we need to postpone the webinar.
There seems to be a problem with public transport as my train has been delayed and I am still at the station.
I will reschedule a new webinar for next week, in the meantime do not hesitate to contact me if you have questions you would like me to address.
Thank you for your understanding and hope to speak with you all soon.
