Fascinating! Is the general focus of this to be long-distance control of drones?

- Let me guess, there is a lot more to it than just that?

Hello folks,
Recently, did an FPV presentation at my local HAM club in Temecula, CA.
Even my amateur knowledge in FPV (using 900mhz, 1.2Ghz, 433mhz) was of great interest to the older HAMs.  Wonder which RF people are using here?

@cory Congrats on the new ham lisc and you are doing the right thing getting the general ticket asap if you really want to enjoy ham radio the HF bands is where its at. If you want some help with anything ham drop me a note. And you are in the right spot for APM for sure.

Just joined the group, new to ham radio and drones.  I'm simultaneously building my first APM based quad, and studying for my General ticket upgrade.  Glad to see other hams here.
