About Me:

I have always been interested in electrical and electronic technology, lately interested in drones whenever I can I do experiments and tests


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I am perfecting a prototype of 100% autonomous agricultural drone (without the need of a pilot) I have designs of mobile structures also ... here my YouTube channel:autodidacta MM https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCCYoLMpXp1X5fUN6ad1jFcA/videos
