About Me:

Interested in all things UAV/FPV and electronics and all things that fly. Love high performance cars and plan on building my 1995 M3 into a track monster. Just graduated with an Associates degree in Electronics in Nov 2011. Will begin college fall 2012 for a Bachelors degree in Aeronautics. 

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I've been flying FPV for eight years. I love all things that fly and also robots. UAV's are the perfect marriage of the two! I have always wanted to work in the UAV industry so I went to college and recently (Oct 2011) got a job at Cloud Cap TechnOlogy in Hood River,OR. 


Soon to be Hood River, OR.

But I strongly suggest you find a 72mzh radio to use, and then you…"
