I was flying R/C models way back in the 80's but married life and raising two kids the R/C models faded into the background. Fast forward to 2013 and my son (Mark) said he wanted to build an R/C model plane.
Google is amazing.
WOW Electric motors, foam model planes and now FPV !!!!
Now I get to go flying with my son. He was able to fly LOS in only a few hours. Next FPV
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
I am especially interested in fixed wing FPV (Skywalker) models. I did read a lot about solutions for RTH and decided to purchase a brand name and now I regret it. So I am scrapping my Nova and joining the ArduPlane open source project.
For me it's all about safety and I'm going to have more confidence flying with ArduPlane on board.
Andreas if you get a spare ten minutes install these extra modules and it should compile on a stock Linux Mint 16. Believe me I am no expert I just searched the Internet to resolve the errors. It looks rather nice on Mint now my next problem is to get my antenna tracker working.
