About Me:

I have been flying RC for 30 years but the new tech of flying RC/UAV/Drones is incredible. I have been watching/following DIY Drones for years now. bought an x8 and have set myself up for opening a drone store dealing with business applications.


Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

love the new tech. FPV, the super brains of the APM and Pixhawk are going to change the way we use uav's and hopefully consolidate all brands into a uniform single source of uav control. I want to be a part of this revolution/change/addition to our lives. I do have an 3DR x8

"I'm thinking of not just sonar for trees, etc. but measuring how hard the ground is with sonar could keep you right on the edge of walkways, driveways. Similar to how a roomba vacuum senses its on a stairway. Wouldn't need GPS for that so it could…"

"yes and it is affordable at under $200. Now the makers of Only Flying Machines uses this camera for a surveillance Drone at the cost of 14K. So questions are for Kefta, how dis you connect it to your drone, gimble? and for  Greg Dronsky, do you plan…"
