Tyrone here. I reside in Kloof but work out in Iraq. I am working with 'RHINO UAV' and wish to make contact with you to pick your brains and ask advise.It is an exciting project which looks to help and train private game reserve owners and anti poaching units using UAVs in order to stop Rhino poaching. South Africa is the obvious choice of test bed and interest is growing. Please contact me as the more people i create dialogues with the better the strategy to implement in the fight for our Rhino. Cheers.
No problem, anything to help. I have to be back in the game reserve from the 6th to the 27th June. Will have email access and can get onto this site the whole time though so let me know.
I'm in the Natal Midlands have platforms and experience, best to keep this sort of thing in the dark really but willing to help.
Thank you for your reply. I am not in SA at the moment but coming home soon on leave. Would like to set up a meeting with you. Haven't been up to the Midlands in a while so can kill two birds with one stone and we can have a chat.
Thank you for your reply, thats great. Would be good to get your e-mail and when you have time i could fire away some questions etc.
Ummmm, yes, that is a big old unit you standing next to, a beautiful elephant!!!
Thanks again Graham.
I'll gladly help if I can. Recently built a quad that can be carried in a backpack with all supporting equipment. Based in Pretoria. (Originally from Natal North coast).

Hello Tyrone Barras. I am in the Kloof area as well. Can not believe you work in Iraq. I am working for a Chinese company and also paced in Iraq. I also have a passion for preserving rino or a particular human race. I did a rescue mission in Mozambique recently looking for the 2 south African father and son that crashed there plane. I then decided to go in deeper into the "drone" thing as much as finances allow me to. I have purchased a lot of equipment and hope they will be home as soon as I arrive home now in August. Cant wait. I have messed a lot of quad copters and lost some and found them after days of crying. My wife think I have lost it. I think she should know that by now but I am hiding that well. I am still entering the drone projects in the cheaper range and no really high teck things that I can brag about like supper long range or so.
Wee must meet once you home..
And that is all of you guys.
Please chat and we must meet and share the fun. Go flay and test equipment. I have lurned the hard way by my self and fried not just one drone but 2 !!! So I now know how not to build one but still make mistakes because I cant wait until every thing is properly done and it is in the air! Not much testing and I am in the "bakkie" and off to a bach, cliff waterfall wat ever, even to the beach and over the see to the ships that is moored off Balito, ware ever.
It will be nice to go to the mountains in the Burg! And test distance and range.
Well don't be doubting to get in tuch I am supper chilled (mad I think ) Fuck.....whatever man.....sounds like (die andwoord) LOL
Had to ad that maybe cause I also work with the Iraq ies and Arabs
How you doing man? Like to go to the midlands and have a flay around in the winter grass and take some picks and , and and have a bear or beer if you do drink and not supper religious or something . Wel I think I should drink less but not right now. I love beer so it is like food and I am always hungry.
Don't worry I am exadurating (not) fk how do you spell that very big word?
Please let me know when you are free
Hey Rhino (horn)
I dono that erials and isn't the 900Mhz prohibited in SA? it is US frequencies and you might interfere with other frequencies but for me more important you don't want other frequencies bothering your flaying experience. It will be supper kak if you cant see your plane when Malema pulles out his home phone and you lose telemetry.
And 2.1 Ghz? we use 2.4 and 5.8 Ghz and 433 mhz....Tell me more what equipment you using If it is better than what I am using please let me know.... firstname.lastname@example.org
