About Me:

Retired Navy Vet. been in the RC hobby for about four decades, but relatively new to the Multi-rotor community. I like to build and fly, the sad truth is, in this hobby, I seem to be a dying breed. There is a growing community of builders and Hackers out there, but still very much the minority... I have experience with many different materials: Woods, metals, composites, etc.. I have the ability to: machine, weld, vacuum form, vacuum-bag, laminate (wood and Composite), and more.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

Basically I just want to build a quad for some basic photography (GoPro) and fun. The recent regulations coming down from the FAA and AMA are a bit problematic but I hope that cooler heads will prevail in the near future. The Quad community, has been creating a great deal of problems for itself with the lack of self regulation. This is due to a lot of factors, ignorance, is high on the list. For now we all have to suffer the lumps, together.

"They have a Gyro Shield for the board.  As for Bar, I believe the Mag and Accelerometers will take care of that."

"Thanks Gary
You are the first person to actually respond to my query, I have posted on RCU and RCG's and nothing. The RCG's post got 82 views at last check, not one reply. Crickets.  It is funny how RCU leans more toward fixed wing folks, that are…"

Hey GangI have been into fixed wing RC for around four decades. Now, I have been bit by the Multi-Rotor scene. Being of the generation that built everything from scratch, or at least from a sizable pile of wood parts. I have worked with many…

"...and why do you want to take on the liability for someone else's property, without their consent?  You could be opening yourself for a legal headache, AKA, get sued.  You would have to prove intent of the multi-rotor operator.  You would be hard…"
