My name is Adam Kroll, I'm the managing director of an airborne mining surveying company in Australia. We have recently received a government grant to develop an innovative UAV platform to be used for surveying purposes.
To date we've been out in the field and done a couple of field trials with varying results. We are slowly but surely getting better results from the Micropilot system we've purchased.
The issue that we have is that myself, a physicist, an electronics engineer and a software engineer are working on it, but I feel we need the expertise of a person who has experience with micropilot to configure the PID loops.
The aircraft we are developing has vector thrust control, but it is not a helicopter or a quadcopter. A person with heli experience would be most suited.
We will be conducting our next lot of testing in early February for a week to 10 days, 2 hours north of Melbourne. If anyone feels that they are suited to the challenge can you please message me. I am willing to fly you from wherever you are in Australia, pay for accomodation, food and a standard wage. Plus if all goes well and the platform is commercialised there will be a full time job available.
