My beginnings were in electrical/mechanical engineering, but ended up as an IT infrastructure engineer (since 1990). English born but Scotland is my true home - been here since 1998. Gadgets have always captured my interest, and RC definitely fits the bill as one of my favourite areas for this. Photography, Snowboarding and MTBing are my other passions.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I was bought my first RC (toy) quadcopter for Xmas 2014 and have been totally hooked on RC ever since. First DIY build in April 2015 was an f450 flamewheel which soon became a stretched f550 hexa, which I still have (although rarely fly). This was too low powered (and far too flexible)though for what I had in mind so I soon started with a Tarot 680Pro framed hexa build (as a solo/dual operator video platform). For fun I started on a F330 build and quickly realised that the frame was too bendy, so switched to a 330 sized carbon fibre frame - all these copters controlled by arducopter 3.3/3.4 now. This is an awesome community, active and inspiring. I am ever grateful to the people here with their relentless passion for the hobby and willingness to assist (even newbies ;-). Truly top notch!
