Sameer Parkekh from FlyingRobotsNYC and Falkor Systems and I gave a main stage talk at Maker Faire NYC two weekends ago, and the video is now live. It starts with 10 minutes of overview on how I got started with drones and then Sameer does a cool demo with a AR.Drone hacked to recognize a kid wearing a t-shirt with the Falkor logo on it. It actually worked, although not quite as well as it had done in rehearsal. Lesson: if you plan to demo with a kid, don't practice with a 6'1" guy--the quad was hovering a bit too high.

My next step is a APM2. I am currently flying with a NAZA an I have no issues with it but I want to start learning coding and Autonomy. Thank you.
