My UAV equipment is on it's way and I can't thank DIY drones enough for the help and support

Over the last couple days I have been raping my bank account and getting everything together to make my UAV. This is by far one of the most exciting projects I have done. For only have being a member on this site for a couple months now, the benefits from this site and the help and the community has had a great impact on me as well as my informational well being on UAV design and technology. My knowledge has expanded far beyond the reaches I could have ever imagined by becoming a member of DIY drones. I can't wait till summer so I can show off the new UAV to my family and friends. One of my brothers works as a DVD producer down in LA, California and he has started a sort of documentary on our home town and plans to make a movie. With my new UAV and it's camera and streaming video capabilities I am sure I will be able to get him some great clips for his movie. What a great view that would be of my quaint little town from hundreds of feet in the air. None of this would be possible without the great community of DIY drones. I am forever greatful and will continue to learn from my friends here at DIY drones. A big thanks to everyone contributing to this cause. GO UAVS!

April 22--

My futaba 7c faast tx/rx just arrived today in the mail and what a beauty of a power horse she is. All of my autonomous gear is here except for the 2 xbee pro 900's and the antenna. And as soon as my Hawksky airframe gets here I will be fully setup and ready to start mounting parts. Going to be interesting to see how everything fits together.

Sounds like a great plan I have been shooting video and pulling stills from a flip HD camera mounted on our easystar, we don't have an autopilot yet but hopefully soon. Will you keep us posted as to your progress and camera choice?

Yea, I am going to keep posting on the progress I have made. Most of the work will probably begin once I am back home for the summer, as of now, I am over in college trying to keep my grades up. I'm looking really forward to finals week being over so I can get crackin on this awesome projecjt.
