Longview, TX

About Me:

I spent 5 years flying the RQ-7B Shadow UAS and Aerosonde Mk 4.7 UAS as a civilian contractor. Currently launching a college degree program at my alma mater, LeTourneau University in Longview, TX. We are pursuing a Section 333 exemption and will utilize 3D Robotics products (aero, IRIS+, etc) to train and develop professional UAS operators.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Personally, I am interested in UAVs as used for search and rescue and first response support. I am pursuing an MS in Unmanned Systems from Embry-Riddle University.

"Hi Erik-
Thanks for the run-down! This is a great summary.

What is your ~average flight time with the IRIS+ hanging the DYS 3-axis?  I'm currently getting 15 minutes with a 550-size hexacopter/DYS smart3, and I recently ordered an IRIS+, curious…"
