Stay-at-home Dad, recently getting into RC and UA/GV's
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Understanding the power is the first step in controlling it. Frankly I find the whole thing fascinating, and can't get it out of my head. Never having played with RC, only toys, the ideas this is sprouting in my brain are overwhelming! An RC "thing" with a brain... Most interested in starting with a UGV, adding a brain to my crawler. ;) I have the crawler already, and I figure stuff can't fall from the ground. Also like the idea of spherical robots like Greg Schroll's Gyrosphere [ http://telovation.com/articles/ball-robot.html ]. Would very much like to figure something like that out. The planes and helis are also very cool, but I have zero experience with them other than some toy indoor helicopters, so there is rather a lot of learning curve there. Would also very much like to learn general fabrication techniques, like carbon fibre/fibreglass, metal working and other DIY stuff. I have some soldering experience and some woodworking experience and am generally handy, but am looking into more 'professional' upgrading of some of my skills.
