About Me:

I am a very creative person and just getting into Traditional Heli, i think it would be an excellent experince and hobby to get into. i love the outdoors and travel here and there, where the crowd tends to be to join for fun. I have been flying the traditional for a few months already and i am loveing it.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I ve built a few planes and Rc Cars in my past, from diffrent materials like, styrofoam, light metals and light wood. This is more of a challenge and more technical, I have some experince in C programming and Avr Programming, I have a degree in Mechincal Engineering and Electrical Engineering and this is where i can use these skills for fun and not just for work. I want to try to help out in problem that other hobbiest.
