About Me:
Completing my HSC as an adult, planning on starting a degree in mechatronics engineering when the HSC is done. Although I wasted ten years of my life using Windows, I refuse to use it now, unless I know it can't hurt me (ie, in a VM jail). Technical training as a telecommunications technician.
Please tell us a bit about your UAV interest
Although it might violate some of the Civil Aviation Authority regulations (and I'll have to discuss the law with a friend who is a solicitor) I'd like to be able to make medium range semi-autonomous UAVs controlled over 4G data links. Hopefully with streaming 3D video.

Dear Shane Morris in a  first analysis of your needs indicates that for your operation will better work with tethered balloons, I am working on a rapid release system that will fly in two weeks all plastic parts are printed at ABS at my studio, and I made some analysis to operate a wifi link with a transmission capacity of 25 KM in diameter.

Certainly, we have considered tethered balloons, and so far that looks like the best idea. I too have a 3D printer, although I print in PLA at the moment.

I am working on a GCS made from a HP thin client, and a 10 inch LCD, all powered from a 12VDC battery. It'll have a tracking antenna trained on the blimp in the air.

Will you be sharing your 3D printed designs to the group? Also, where is a good, cheap, place to get an envelope for a blimp? China sellers do sell them, but at a premium.

Many thanks for accepting my group request!
