About Me:

A life-long gadget fan, I've always been an early adopter and experimenter with new technologies. I founded my own drone company in 2014 on the premise that I could develop a better commercial UAV by using 3D printing technology. After two years, I proved my thesis with the FreeBird One.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I am the founder and the chief architect for Freebird Flight, a developer of next-gen UAV technology.
