Found our 1st true love on myspace, which means......

It's time to return to where we 1st envisioned having a UAV & enact the vision seen 22 years ago with real hardware.

In 1988, intended to have a manually flown, solar powered quad rotor which flew over the East Bay hills to our 1st love & provided telepresense. Still not possible to this day, but part the vision involving hovering near the school can be realized.

There it is. The vision has finally been made real.

This is where we had the 1st ideas & drew the 1st pictures of what would 1 day be a practical UAV.

But all good things come to an end, with pride.

Forgot to screw in the servo horn.

So the idea was a pizza delivery quad, that was advanced in 88

I think that those are solar cells on the top of the quad in the quad drawing. :)
