About Me:

Product designer and R/C glider enthusiast, also lots of robotics thrown in the mix. I have built models since I was a young kid and can make just about anything fly, so the airframe side of the UAV is a piece of cake for me, the programming is what I find difficult, I am a cut and paste kinda guy when it comes to code.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

"Yeah, a bit pricey, was wondering myself how Nasa acquired them, Seems like they wouldn't have a budget for that type of aircraft and why would the Airforce or Northrop Grumman donate or loan them out? Looks like they are down at Dryden from the…"
