About Me:
I am a 30 year-old engineer from Long Island, New York. I am a full-time engineer and part-time Physics grad student in the Los Angeles area of California, where I plan to stay for the foreseeable future.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I'm looking to learn about flying and control systems.
My UAV plan is:
(1) Learn to fly (requires plane, radio, flight club, AMA membership)
(2) Build a sensor/camera payload with a commercial open-source IMU, a data logger, Airwave A/V TX/RX modules, and a NTSC camera. Maybe I'll throw an OSD in there between the camera and the Airwave TX module.
(3) Fly with the payload, and record sensor measurements.
(4) Use sensor measurements to set control algorithm, and try flying with autopilot.
(5) Repair plane and return to step 1.

  1. Learn to fly,

  2. Fly with a camera payload (just for fun),
  3. Fly manually with sensors, a data logger, and maybe a camera,…
