About Me:

Check out my blog posts to find out what I'm working on. Coming soon... www.smart-drones.com a website for all things 'drone' in the heart of France. Some of my other projects relating to 3d printing in metal can be seen at www.metalbot.org. Or visit my google+ page: https://plus.google.com/u/0/


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

My original goal was to design and build an ideal aerial photography platform. This as expanded to a desire to overhaul the drone industry using advanced technology and innovation from a wide range of new techniques and cutting edge tools.

"Completely disrespectful, trying to pass that off as their own, that is blatant fraud especially considering the so-called pedigree of the company. What do they have to gain by stripping credits like that?"
