Buffalo, WY

About Me:

Flying RC since 1970. Brand new to multicopter. Have built many Radios, receivers, servos, back in the day ( when my eyesight was a bitt better)in the 70's and 80's. I go back to Heathkits, Ace, Royal Receivers, Kraft, ProLine, and had my first Futaba radio when they were a new thing. Fly planes and dabbled with helicopters and pre-built multicopters. Don't remember when I last purchased a pre built PC, but beyond learning the basics of BASIC am not a programmer. My favorite programming language is solder!

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

General hobby use, I just like the idea of automatic stabilization and autonomous flight, a dream when I started into RC. Hell, when I started a good day was 3 flights without a crash!
