Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

DO NOT ASK ME ANYMORE FOR THE "SFOC FOR THE DUMMIES" DOCUMENT. ASK TO THOSE WHO TOLD ME THEY WERE GOING TO REVIEW IT AND NEVER DID IT. Interested in UAV for a upcoming project including the use of a SAR Radar on a UAV in boreal tundra. Use a Maja, a RQ-11 clone a X8 wing, RVJet and other RC planes to test my autopilots (2x Navio+ (on Rpi/Odroid C1) 3 Pixhawk , 3 APM1, 4 APM2, 1 APM 2.5 and 3 Attopilot, ....) and Fred's micropilots. Got a XQuad but just for fun until I mount a camera to take Aerial Photo on it. Help my friend Fred witch have 2 Penguin B, 2 Micropilot 2128g and 2 Real Time Kinematic GPS and a lot of other Mini UAV. Member of the PennyBelle UAV team.
