Hope you like the group logo, apologies to E.W. Searle for my take on the rather well-known original...

  • Hello, 

    My name is Jesús from Spain, I´m not in Sydeney yet but I´m going to go for two months in august, for Phd stay at the Sydney University at the ACFL. And i I want to contact with the UAV community there. 



  • Hello,  Just saw the Sydney group and thought I should join.  I am a relative newbie to UAV's and have a Y6B, Bilxer and RVJET all fitted with Pixhawk or AMP2.5's. The RVJET is my current build project.

    I am very interested in finding good sites and clubs as I would like to become a bit more involved with the local UAV community.  I work in broadcast Television and film as and Audio Director and Sound Designer but am also on the way to getting my commercial UAV licence. Mainly with a view to get into mapping and surveying but also as an excuse to try to turn a hobby into something that generates a bit of income while giving me a technical and skill set challenge. (Much like my current job).

    Anyway, hope the rest of the group is still around (I noticed the last post was a while ago).
