Houston, TX

About Me:

Am an ol' EE with telemetry and applications background. Don't know how to stop playing with new technology and happy for it.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Trex-550 w/APS, Spectrum control and 5.8GHz video (my entry point no less) and a QAV540G with Vector (that was worth waiting for!)and EZUHF but still on 5.8GHz for video. Like the videos from the gimbal mounted GoOro Hero 3. Have a new MQK250 from Canada to finish next, objective smaller craft to get down in the trees etc. AMA#954079 KG5BBF

"I know some specific National Parks have restrictions. I was not aware of a total ban it would be up to each state to regulate state parks. I do agree with joining AMA but most of those fields have few if anyone flying FPV."
