Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I remember watching the older guys fly RC models in summers back in the 70´s and I always wanted to get into it. My only experience back then was within 5 seconds of first flight crashing my control line stunt model that had an all too powerful O.S glow engine. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Control_line Here we are 35 years later. I recently picked up realizing this teenage dream to master RC flight control. I got some Phoenix simulator mileage now. I´ve quickly ended up with six RC planes in different states of assembly and associated field gear, without even having flown any of them yet. I own an AR.Drone with 30 seconds flight time so far, I will explore mobile phone interaction with UAV´s as time comes :) UAV is cool because it gives a great hands-on insight into accomplishing stabilizing features not present in traditional wing based RC models.
