This was an especially good one. High points include:

--How MLB went from shoulder-mounted gliders to UAVs, and now back to gliders again (converting one to an electric UAV for NASA)
--What happened to the domestic UAV startup industry after 9/11 (nothing good!)
--Commercial opportunities for UAVs today in monitoring carbon sinks, such as the rain forest
--Why a VTOL is an especially hard IMU problem (transition from vertical to horizontal flight)
--And and always-popular Kalman vs DCM discussion!

No-one ever asks where the MLB name came from.
