About Me:

I am a former U.S. Army Soldier and government contractor. I have always been fascinated with technology. I study, research and implement technologies every chance I get.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

My plan is to build a fully functional UAV that goes beyond the scope of hobbyist but eventually crosses over into commercial applications.

"Elios,
We are trying to make this as low cost as possible, just for this purpose...S&R.  I have looked into crowd sourcing but finding the programmer was the hard part.  So now I have a small team and we are moving forward with our small business pl…"

"Kevin, a rangefinder is very costly and heavy for smaller aircraft.  I'm trying to make this software-based that can interface with most cameras and gimbals.  All you will need, in theory, is a computer, camera, video stream, and gimbal."

"There has been some progress. I have a programmer working on a third party application to implement the solutions. To solve for elevation differences, Mission Planner has the terrain map feature that can plot elevation changes using Google Earth ser…"

"Get a law made.  Until then, there are no regulations governing the usage of other footage passed off as another other than copyright violations.  I'm truly playing Devil's advocate here.  As I believe one should have the decency to display footage…"

"Au contraire Quadz, I read every single comment. So he broke a couple of kickstarter rules. That's between them and Kickstarter. Everyone is entitled to their opinion, so if you don't want to contribute then don't. But take every single commercial o…"

"What fraud?  Please tell me?  And what's this about contributing if you purchase an APM?  That wasn't in the clause when I clicked the "Confirm order" button.  It's very ignorant of anyone to say that these guys are doing something wrong.  Many comp…"

"I have all of the formulas I need...now I just need to implement all of it into program format.  That's the hard part.  
Jay, I know what you mean.  For such a large community, there seems to not be a large support group for stuff like this.  I real…"

"On my home computer, civilians only have access to DTED0 which is insufficient for navigation, especially on such a small scale.  DTED1 and DTED2 are reserved for military and government use only and can only be released at the discretion of NGA.  L…"

"Bryan,
I'm very familiar with DTED.  I too work with MQ-1s and MQ-9s on a daily basis, although DTED doesn't affect me much with my job.  I think this would be much easier to implement on the ground due to processing power and memory limitations of…"
