Retired since 2009. I left the hobby around 2022 after a tragic crash of my home built Tarot 650 Sport due to a propeller separation. I have decided to return by building a new Tarot 650 quad using old tech - Ardupilot, analog video and a GoPro camera. Will also navigate the new laws and restrictions.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I have previously built several quadcopters as well as one hex. All have crashed as part of my learning experience - pilot error, mistakes in flight controller configuration and mechanical problems. I miss building my own aircraft and have decided to build one more: a Tarot 650 Sport quad using old tech - Ardupilot/APM, analog video using a GoPro Hero 10 camera on a 3-axis gimbal. I am also interested in navigating the gauntlet of regulations and documenting my experience.
