Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I've been interested in RC aircraft for a while. My grandfather was quite skilled in building his own airplanes. At work, we have been using UAVs to gather data for research purposes. We began with aerial imagery to develop a tool to remotely assess road conditions, but we have also flown over water to gather pictures and spectral measurements for quality assessment and even attached software defined radios (SDR) for testing.
