About Me:

I'm a Computer Tech, Programmer, Hacker, Mechanic, Fabricator, Harley Rider. I have been in the RC world for over 30 years now. I have been racing RC cars with my kids for a very long time. My first RC Car had a Resistor with a servo wiper arm for the speed controller!

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I have several size electric RC Helis and now I'm building my first Multicopter, it will probably be a HexaCopter, planning to use ArduPilotMega to control it. I will learn to program micro-controllers building this. I expect to also build my own shield boards with the latest sensors to improve on the current ones!
