Hi my name is Matt,
I'm new to the whole UAV thing. I have been flying a cheap foam Super Cub for a few months now and have only recently heard about the UAV aspects. In my community I am a member of the local volunteer fire dept. and on occasion we get calls to assist in the search for missing/lost persons in our area. I am very interested in transforming my plane into a UAV not only for the cool/fun factor of it but it would be a great asset when the call should go out to search for another missing person.
I appologize for being long winded but the question I have is, What kit can I buy that has everything I need to make it work in my plane? I am running the Spektrum 4 channel system at the moment and plan to upgrade to the 8 channel soon. The plane is from Hobby Zone and comes with what they are calling "Anti-Crash Technology"...
If someone can give this "non-techie" some insite as to what I need it will be greatly appreciated!!
