Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Since quite a few years I dream about equipping one of my RC planes with an autonomous control. Mainly for two reasons: the idea itself is fascinating. Number two is, that I very thrilled by the (HD) video of my GoPro HD mounted on a heavily tweaked TwinStar II. The thing that bothers me sometime is the range of my eyes (although still in good shape ;). Although in nearly every aspect capable of inventing my own solution, there are a few things that make me think it is better to by one. Number one reason is time (job, family and so on). Number two is very profane but nearly a show stopper: soldering an ATmega1280 is (nearly) impossible by hand. The only thing to try would be reflow – which I don’t have any experience with and – again – not enough time to build this experience.
