At least he's finally doing something closer to his education.  Would be surprising if 3D Robotics paid for the same lifestyle that Wired did.

Wow, now that's big news!  I'm sure Chris thought about it plenty before making the leap.  Congrats Chris!

Sometimes you've got to follow your passion. I see this as really good news for those of us 'invested' in 3DR gear.

Congrats and best of luck Chris!

From what I have seen 3DR is doing very well, 7+ mill is not shabby at all

Congrats Chis

I am sure 3DR will benefit from 100% of his attention

Dude. The American dream, (well, one of them). Nice work.

Here's a snapshot of Chris' new office in the Berkeley Hills. The rooftop FPV antenna array is impressive, but the best part is the private BART station in the basement from whence he can commute to Chavez Park and supervise APM beta testing.

Congratulations Chris!

Thanks Mark! I'll be opening the Bay Area offices of 3DR, to go with San Diego engineering and Tijuana production. Should be ramping up by the end of the month, after I wind down my Wired duties. Stay tuned for more news next week regarding funding. This is going to be big ;-)

Wow...Congratulations Chris!

Hey, good news!  I was amazed that you've been able to do two jobs for so long!
