Addison, TX

About Me:

I am a Software Engineer from Texas. I have held an internship at NASA's Kennedy Space Center. I actually worked very close to UAVs, I think they actually used the term UAS more often. It was an amazing experience.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

As a child i build many many stick and tissue rubber band planes. Eventually I was able to get an RC airplane but crashed it when flying it in strong wind. I was too young. Fast forward and in engineering school i developed an interest in AI and autonomous machines. I recently graduated and now finally have the money to delve back into RC airplanes. Combine all this and its easy to see why I have an interest here.

So i just purchased a Futaba FP-T8UAF. How can I reset this thing back to factory settings? Or at erase the saved settings per model. I am getting the hang of changing settings from the manual but it would be nice if I could start fresh with factory…

"Just going to thrown in another solution I was considering encase my ESC did not put out a safe 5-6 volts. Its also possible to use a 7805 voltage regulator. Or maybe there is a problem with doing this... Any one feel to point out a problem with…"
