I'm the world's oldest noob; in that I've been stuck at the "noob pilot" skill level for nearly 40 years. I am "joystick defective"; no matter how much sim time or real flying time I get, I just seem to have trouble with the hand-eye coordination thing. I do, however, have a LOT of skill at building as a result. ;)
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I do a little mini ans micro FPV; my first excursion into APM is a HK 2.5.2 board which I wish to configure for Attitude hold and RTH on my latest 72" Cub build.
