Wow! Cool app. I saw RC transmitters in the video, and I saw a GPS-looking thing on a mast. How is the unit guided?

I can only imagine. The almond crops up and down the Central Valley of California had bee boxes outside last week when I drove to Los Angeles. The bee leasing industry is a big deal. Maybe they can't provide enough bees to get the job done.
On the other side, the almond industry has recently exploded in California.
