About Me:

I'm a federal public employee of the Brazilian government working at the UFMG (Federal University of Minas Gerais).
My day job is to collaborate on running the LAC (Laboratory of Computing Arts) in the UFMG's School of Fine Arts.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

My interest here is on building multi-rotors and fixed-wing drones. My main contributions as 3D artist can be checked on ArduPilot documentation, as developer I did concentrate my work on hardware and software for telemetry (ArduCam OSD and minimOSD) and remote-control for aerial photography (USB PTP remote for Canon PowerShot cameras as part of the ArduCAM project). I love embedded hardware programming and RC stuff.
