About Me:
Experienced model builder, and experienced in I.T.
You can see pictures of my UAV Devboard project here.

And videos of the project are here.

I have been writing software to capture telemetry from the plane, and plot it's "intentions" and resulting position in the sky. An example is shown below.

What's going on here? This is a "Virtual Venice UAV race". It's based on the DIYDrones T3 figure of 8 competition.

The screncast's purpose is to show how pilots can potentially fly their planes in different parts of the world, and then have their geo position and time base altered so that they end up racing side by side in Google…

Hi,

I found you on Wiliam's blog: http://diydrones.com/forum/topics/wind-estimation-without-an reading that you developed scripts for estimating wind based on logs. Colleague of mine who is balloon pilot, ask me if he could use my arducopter for wind direction and speed. I would be more than thankful if you could share with me your script or advice how to develop it.

Best regards,

Pawel
