About Me:

Im a web developer based in Bangkok. I have an strong interest in electronics and opensource hardware. I'm also interested in community building. I am organizer of Barcamp Bangkok as well as Bangkok Hackerspace (that has shut down for now but hope to reopen again soon). I run an Arduino blog/forum in german language. My latest project is Bangkok Scientifique, a monthly technology and science meetup in a coffeehouse atmosphere that will start in january 2012.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I build model airplanes as a teenager but have yet to anything with ArduPilot included. For now i'm just a spectator of the cene but hope to own a hexacopter one day and take pictures from the sky.
