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.
