About Me:

I am part of a team 2 family related friends that got facinated by UAV drones now accessible technical revolution. We both agreed to explore and research, understand, experiment, formulate a project and make it come to ive. With the support of the DIY Drone community, we are confident we can formulate a strategy to improve autonomus flight time.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
