Craigieburn, Vic

About Me:

I am a sometime scientist, mathematician and engineer and I have some info on linkedin if you are that type.

Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest

I don't have "interests", I have bugs. At one point it was robots. Now it's robots that fly. I have a simple 450 that's seen better days. I'm "upgrading" to a Seeker with FPV capabilities. And then there's the "Raven" which I'm too scared to take out and fly. The first flight is likely going to be the last as well. My former mode of travel was via semi autonomous truckbot. See my http://youtube.com/user/kymhorsell page for some several years' old footage of same.

"I'll just kibbitz for now, if that's OK. I really don't want to stack my poor 450  again; and the Seeker is still a-building and waiting on parts. If anyone wants to see crrcsim flying a + quad around Davis Field or a windy Cape Cod and reading live…"

"I'm out in Craigieburn, centre of housing development, bushfires, and lots of wide open grassy spaces for take-off and crashing. I'm a public-transport user."
