Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Live in CO Antrim, Ireland. Have always been interested in RC, and the explosion in Drone building and technology has really made this interesting. Started research from scratch just 6 weeks ago and have built my first Drone. A 550 Hexacopter, Running on a Pixhawk PX4, with 2212 920KV motors and 10" blades. Also fitted FPV with a varuiable output transmitter, Foxeer camera and Fat Shark antennas, to a Quanum Cyclops set of goggles. Just in the process of fitting a cheap Gimbal which has died before even fitted. I use a Taranis controller and an FRsky X8r rx. So far I have gor the Hex in the air, but I'm not happy with flight times, so working on the maths for combinations
