Profile Information

About Me:
I am Simon Jardine CEO of Aerobot in Australia.

You ain't see anything yet!!!
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Home of the FPV God master of the Unflyable ;-)
Northern NSW

What I do.

I started a business called eyeinthesky..net.au. then quadrocopter.com.au.

Unfortunately CASA were quick to shut us down, something about having to fly a Cessna and be a real pilot? 

CASA's Slogan is "safe skies for us all", now that's funny because what they really mean...

We don't care about safe skies, just show us the money. 

You can fly anything, pretty much anywhere legally, but if your making money, basically they want some. If your not making money from your flying machine, that's O.K.

   Anyway we started Aerobot.com.au and for almost 6 years we have been building things that fly :-)  (Apparently we don't need a license to sell flying machines.)

My Job at Aerobot is to fly and test all machines before the customer arrives for training.

I have tested nearly every flight controller there is! 

I am confident in saying that Mikrokopter is ahead of the pack and will be for some time...

Ardu is getting closer, but it's just not quite there yet.

The rest, fall into the paddock basher category, fun with mates, not to be used commercially.

Right now, almost the end of 2013, we have been very busy developing our own frames.

Our GoFour Aerobot ring works well and proved to be near indestructible.

We are pretty confident in what comes next will be a real game changer.

Here it is, the last thing we had to do before production.

Crash testing from Simon Jardine on Vimeo.

The model you see in the video is actually made of fibre glass and without a bottom plate. (it's not complete)

The end product will be made of…
